So far, Reeder 4 is holding up really well as my RSS reader on Mac and iOS. I contacted developer about custom fonts and that is in the works. One other thing I’d like is for it to remember readability mode for feeds, as Fiery Feeds does.
Bought and installed Reeder 4 for Mac today. The app is a lot snappier, and Readability view is now much more reliable. Only downsize so far is that you can’t select custom fonts for article view, but that’s not a deal-breaker for me. (Option for OpenDyslexic would be nice.)
Switching to posting here on my blog site instead of Facebook was an important part of weaning myself away from that place. But having my RSS feeds to look through was, and remains, the key.
At least MarsEdit is still working, as is the RSS feed for my timeline. So there’s that.
I’ve mentioned before that I’m using Inoreader as my RSS feed collector of choice. You get a lot more tools and customisation than Feedly for a lot less money.
They’ve recently announced changes to their pricing plans. They are going to introduce new custom plans for heavy users and those requiring a lot of customisations. But they’re also tweaking the features of the existing plans, and removing one tier (Plus) completed.
I’m not immediately affected, since my current subscription run until mid-2020 and I don’t use filters much. But I’ll be keeping an eye on how this develops.
Yet another reason why I’m glad I switched over from Feedly for my RSS needs.
Today, I’m trying out something @patrickrhone suggests in his book Minimal Mac, and simplifying my RSS feeds into just two folders: Important and Unimportant.
I’ve already dropped a lot of feeds that haven’t been updated in ages, plus some more that no longer work.
One niggle: both my RSS reader apps of choice—Reeder on Mac, Fiery Feeds on iOS—lack the ability to reorganise multiple feeds in one go. I had to go direct to Inoreader, the service I use to gather and sync to my devices, to sort all my feeds.
