Now, as a result of the acquisition, the app has begun its migration to Supertop’s App Store account with the rerelease of Unread for iPhone.
The relaunched Unread notably has a new revenue model. Unlike the original, which cost $4.99 to download, the new Unread app is free on the App Store.
However, the free download has its limitations. It lets you read up to 50 articles only to begin with, beyond which you can read only three articles per day.
To be able to read articles without limitations and to unlock six additional app themes to boot, you have to avail of a one-time in-app purchase, which can be any of the following options: $12.99 for “indie app hero,” $4.99 for “regular,” or $3.99 for “reduced (unemployed, senior, veteran).”
If you’ve purchased the previous version of Unread for iPhone, you can unlock the new app’s full version free of charge.
The new app also features support for iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, and iOS 8.
Unread for iPad remains available on the App Store for $4.99, although it’s expected to be pulled soon in favor of Supertop’s rerelease.
