Popular iPad RSS reader Mr. Reader has just been updated with a number of new features, improvements, and other fixes. First up, version 2.1 of the app adds two additional RSS sync services – InoReader and Subreader. The update also moves the video collecting service in the ToWatchList for content from both YouTube and Vimeo. A number of improvements have also been added the app. Some of the more notable include the ability to extend theme management and a new option to post to Tumblr in Markdown formatting. Also, the article table sorting has been improved. Finally, overall error handling has been improved along with a trio of other fixes. Designed for the iPad/iPad mini, Mr. Reader can be downloaded now in the App Store for $3.99. At one time, the app was essentially a high-powered Google Reader, but that all changed when the service went offline on July 1. Version 2.0 of the program, which was released in late June, added support for a number of other replacements, including BazQux Reader, Feedbin, FeedHQ, Feedly, Feed Wrangler, and Fever. Before today’s update, the most recent version was released in late July. Version 2.0.1 removed the Google Reader login in and made improvements with the other alternative services. I’m glad to see Mr. Reader continue to evolve and be one of the best RSS readers for iOS device users.
