  • My Top 2 iOS apps

    By The Hoi Polloi
    I have used it every day for 4 years now; this along with a podcast app that I won't mention here, are absolutely the top 2 best designed iOS apps and must haves. I am a news junkie and that means tons of reading (and listening) and knowing what to skip so you focus on what is relevant and skip what you have read before. There is no other easier way to design this than what Unread has been doing. At least I don't know of a better app after having used 300 apps of all kinds in 10 years, and I don't even do gaming apps, I mostly use productivity apps. This one is in my Top 2, and truly deserves the only app review I have ever given. One thing I don't want the app designer to change is font. Please do not .. wait, dare not.. change from Whitney font. Nothing else can ever be so clean and pristine. I hear what other reviewers are asking you to change but perhaps as an old-timer, I would like you to just retain what you have. It's neat, compact and most well designed that I can see. I would in fact encourage you to move to a subscription model where readers pay at least $10 each year. It will keep some people away but I think that's a better model to sustain your business and not worry about closing shop than a one time unlock. You app is worth far more than $10 for a lifetime.
  • Only swipe to go back?

    By daedalus97
    As someone who doesn’t normally use the swipe to go back gesture, I find the app extremely confusing when that is the only option to navigate back. The navigation bar provides context of where you are in the app with the title and a clear way to go back with the back button. To omit both makes navigation of the app really confusing even with the on-boarding at the start.
  • Beautiful app

    By Taurus123
    I have always viewed Unread as second best to Reeder but Reeder is looking more and more like an abandoned app. So I decided to dive into Unread. I have to say there is a lot to like about this app! The reading environment is beautiful, all the themes are great! What I love the most about this app is that it has good defaults. I didn’t have to spend hours making this app usable, it doesn’t have pages and pages of settings. It was very easy to use out of the box. The only thing I’m hopeful to see in the next update is some powerful workflow options or integration with Siri Shortcuts.
  • Great App, Missing Keyboard Support

    By Mlbizzle
    So far I am really enjoying the app’s design, and love the simplicity of it. For me the only things it is lacking that would make it a 5 star: *Keyboard support (I typically read on my iPad Pro). *An option for smaller thumbnails would also be nice in the article previews. Otherwise, it is great! I already upgraded to the full version. Thanks for the great app!
  • White space

    By Kliev
    It seems weird that on an 11” iPad, with text set to tiny and thumbnails off, I can still only see 4 articles in a list. Maybe I’m missing something.
  • Long time user

    By MacBKin
    I’ve been using this app for many years and it’s great!
  • Yay

    By C#J#
    Really nice working app. I like all the themes. Gets better all the time and small bugs are fixed.
  • Best RSS reader out there

    By falstaf
    I tried a lot and this is the best!
  • A beautiful wonderful app experience

    By oyster
    Thank you to the developer for continuing to build this beautiful app. RSS is not as popular as it used to be, but for those of us that rely on it, having a current, powerful tool is critical. If you love RSS, you want this app.
  • Not support .gif

    By Lost_Kitten
    The .gif were missing, its position being replaced by a blank box. Also, some videos that can be directly play on inoreader were substituted by their snapshot without any notifications or identification. Two issues mentioned above are worth two stars. Other functions are perfect.
