RIP Google Reader ... Long Live Reeder, Now With Support For Feedly And Feed Wrangler

Let us bow our heads and observe a moment of silence for our beloved Google Reader, which has just been, in a manner of speaking, "marked as read" for good … But even as Google Reader is dead, the popular RSS client app Reeder certainly lives on. And proof of this is its new update, which went live mere moments ago. The latest update to Reeder for iPhone removes Google Reader from the service list, although it doesn't delete existing Google Reader accounts in the app. More importably, the new Reeder update brings support for a couple of Google Reader alternatives, namely, Feedly and Feed Wrangler (albeit sans support for smart streams yet). Last April, Reeder was updated with support for Feedbin and no-sync local RSS, in addition to Fever and Readability syncing. As it stands, Reeder functions as a local RSS reader and a client for any or all of the following:
  • Feedbin syncing (optional, paid account required, see
  • Feedly syncing (optional, free account required, see
  • Feed Wrangler syncing (optional, paid account required, see
  • Fever syncing (optional, paid web app required, see
  • Readability syncing (optional, free account required, see
The new version of Reeder is available now in the App Store. The app is normally priced at $2.99, but it has been made available for free. As for Reeder for iPad and Reeder for Mac, both will be pulled from the App Store since they remain Google Reader-only. According to Reeder developer Silvio Rizzi, they will be restored once they gain support for Google Reader replacement services through their upcoming updates. [gallery link="file" order="DESC"]
