In September, the acclaimed feed reader app Unread was acquired from Jared Sinclair aka Nice Boy by Supertop, the studio behind the popular podcast client Castro. As a result of the acquisition, the app had to be migrated to Supertop’s App Store account. The migration began with the relaunch of Unread for iPhone a month ago.
Now, it’s Unread for iPad’s turn.
Supertop has indeed just relaunched Unread for iPad. And like Unread for iPhone, it comes with a new revenue model.
But the initial free download does come with this restriction: It lets you read only three articles per day, and up to 50 articles total only.
To remove the restriction, and to unlock seven additional app themes and night mode at the same time, you have to get any of the following upgrade options via in-app purchase, as in Unread for iPhone: $12.99 for “indie app hero,” $4.99 for “regular,” or $3.99 for “reduced (unemployed, senior, veteran).”
If you’ve purchased Nice Boy’s Unread for iPad, you can unlock the full version of the new Unread for iPad for free.
Unread supports syncing with Feed Wrangler, Feedbin, Feedly, Fever, and NewsBlur. It features full-screen reading, a gesture-driven interface, multiple themes, and OvershareKit sharing.
