Managing and Subscribing to Feeds Has Never Been Easier With Fiery Feeds
Further proving itself a more than capable feed reader for iOS, Fiery Feeds has just received a major update that introduces new and noteworthy features.
For the uninitiated (or for those who are are familiar only with Reeder or Newsify), Fiery Feeds is a feed reader that supports syncing of multiple accounts with a number of feed aggregation services, including Feedly, Feedbin, Minimal Reader, Feed Wrangler, Fever, Feedja, NewsBlur, AOL Reader, Inoreader, The Old Reader, and Tiny Tiny RSS. The app also supports syncing with the popular read-it-later services Pocket, Instapaper, and Readability (which unfortunately is scheduled to be shut down on Sept. 30).
With its latest update, Fiery Feeds, which was launched almost three years ago, has gained support for full feed management. This means that you now have the ability to subscribe to and unsubscribe from feeds, rename feeds and folders, create or delete folders, and move and update feeds right within Fiery Feeds. Just long-press on a feed or folder to bring up the contextual feed management options, as shown in this video:
Note that certain management operations work only with certain services:
- Unsubscribing from feeds (Feedbin, Minimal Reader, Feedly, Feed Wrangler, TTRSS, Inoreader, NewsBlur, AOL Reader, The Old Reader)
- Renaming feeds (Feed Wrangler, Inoreader, NewsBlur, AOL Reader, The Old Reader, Feedly, Minimal Reader)
- Subscribing to Feeds (Feedbin, TTRSS, Minimal Reader, Feedly, Feed Wrangler, Inoreader, Newsblur, AOL Reader, The Old Reader)
- Deleting folders (Feedbin, Minimal Reader, Feedly, Inoreader, AOL Reader, The Old Reader, Feed Wrangler)
- Creating folders (Feedbin, Minimal Reader, Inoreader, AOL Reader, The Old Reader, Feedly)
- Renaming folders (Minimal Reader, Inoreader, AOL Reader, The Old Reader, Feedly, Feed Wrangler)
- Adding/Removing feeds from folders (Feedbin, Minimal Reader, Inoreader, AOL Reader, The Old Reader, Feedly)
- Updating a single feed or folder server side (Tiny Tiny RSS)

Thanks to its full feed management support, Fiery Feeds now also allows subscribing to a site or adding a webpage to a read-it-later service directly from Safari or any other compatible app using Fiery Feeds’ share extension, as demoed in this video:
The new version of Fiery Feeds also boasts a Today widget that’s been optimized for iOS 10, in time for the official release of the operating system tomorrow, Sept. 13. The updated Today widget supports the new Show More/Less buttons in iOS 10 (see images below), in addition to allowing switching of accounts and viewing of preview images.
