Pocket has a dedicated Mac app for reading the content you’ve saved for reading later. Unfortunately, the same can’t be said of both Instapaper and Readability. Fortunately, though, there’s an available app that makes reading your Instapaper, Readability, and Pocket stuff easier on your Mac. We told you about it when it was launched last January. And it merits another mention now on account of its 2.0 update.
I’m referring to ReadKit, whose 2.0 update is a major update primarily because it adds support for RSS services.
With Google Reader set to shut down by the end of next month, the arrival of RSS support in ReadKit is no doubt a welcome improvement. Specifically, ReadKit now supports Fever, NewsBlur, and local RSS.
In addition, ReadKit 2.0 includes smart folders with live update, Notification Center integration, and the following improvements:
- Preference to save and restore reading positions
- Preference to cache images locally for all read later services
- Preference to confirm deletion of bookmarks
- Improved sync performance
- Several other improvements and fixes
ReadKit 2.0 is available now in the Mac App Store as a free update or as a new $4.99 download. The app is compatible with OS X 10.7 or later.
