It's Alive: Reeder 2 Launches For iPhone And iPad In Post-Google Reader World
Reeder, one of my all-time favorite iOS apps, has just gotten a sequel. The follow-up app is simply called Reeder 2, and it's out now in the App Store for iPhone and iPad. That's right. Unlike the original Reeder, which is optimized for iPhone, and Reeder for iPad, which is compatible with iPad only, Reeder 2 is a universal iOS app. Actually, the launch of Reeder 2 essentially marks the return and redesign of Reeder for iPad, which was pulled from the App Store early last July following the termination of Google Reader. [caption id="attachment_461040" align="aligncenter" width="320"] Reeder[/caption] As well, it constitutes a relaunch and redesign of Reeder for iPhone, which remained available even after Google Reader's demise thanks to its support for Feedbin, Feedly, Feed Wrangler, and Fever. Of course, Reeder 2 also features support for Feedbin, Feedly, Feed Wrangler, and Fever, in addition to local RSS and Readability support. Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 6.1 or later, Reeder 2 is available now in the App Store for $4.99. Unfortunately, existing users of Reeder cannot upgrade to the new app for free. If you ask me, though, I don't mind paying for an app — a high-quality and universal one at that — that I'm sure to use daily and satisfactorily. For an in-depth assessment of Reeder 2, stay tuned to AppAdvice for Christine's full review of the app. [gallery link="file" order="DESC"]
