Deceptive Reviews 1/5
Perhaps this app was once good, hence some of the rave reviews but I’m quite disappointed.
No gestures (eg can’t advance to next article with a swipe).
No 3D Touch features.
Can’t adjust font size in full text page.
Full text loads very slowly.
I bought the app only because it was advertised as allowing download for offline reading, but this is a false claim. You cannot get full text without an active internet commotion, and it fetches very slowly and freezes often.
Why again did I pay for this? The free Feedly app has similar features with much nicer appearance.
Despite Developer Neglect, Still Pretty Great 4/5
Not sure what happened to my original review, but, in short, it exclaimed the greatness of this app.
Lately it’s introduced a number of bugs, including increased battery use and display errors; the once-responsive developer no longer even acknowledges contacts.
That said, I feel guilty I’ve used this app extensively and daily for years without any additional payments. Were it to update some features (I really need a find in list/page text search, and easier access to common tags and Night Mode toggle), or just fix the bugs introduced in the last update and iOS 11, I’m not blowing smoke when I say I’d happily pay $10 or even up to $25 per year for this invaluable app as part of my daily workflow.
I’d love to see some premium subscription features on top of the basics used by the casual user.
Great RSS reader 5/5
Feeddler RSS works well and is a pleasure to use. It gives me exactly what I need.
The user interface is simple and easy to use. The app doesn’t get in the way doing its job by trying to do everything. What it does, it does well.
I’ve been using Feedler RSS for several years and recommend it highly.
Works well 5/5
By Darmok N. Jalad
Rarely have an issue, and the developer keeps updating the app. I don’t buy many apps, but I use this one everyday and liked it enough to pay for the Pro version.
Really really good feed reader 5/5
Now on 4.1. Still my favorite reader of all time. Use it every day. Is how I get all my news. Keeps getting better, too. Interface is out of your way and a pleasure to use.
Fantastic Reader! 5/5
Excellent. Can't wait for some 3D Touch shortcuts 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
Jump glitch is fixed. Great team response. Great app 5/5
They fixed the jumping glitch. Fantastic. All is well in one of my favorite apps FeeddlerPro.
This is a great app. I use it everyday.
But after their latest update (for iPhone X), the screen now jumps when I scroll the news up to read. This is very annoying. Please keep the scrolling stable as it was before.
I am on an iPhone 7 with latest iOS.
v4.0 jumpy on scroll. 1/5
V4.0 has discontinuous jumps when scrolling up.
Great Reader 5/5
By The Donald is Alright
This program is a great reader. Simple. Fast. Effortless. This simple text preview is vastly superior to the mixture of images and text that provide the interface to many other news apps and RSS readers.
Easy to use and reliable 5/5
I've been using this app for several years now and love it. It is a small investment for a great return. It is very easy to use and easy to archive your feeds into different folders. I've tried other apps that crash or will lag. This app is worth it!
Terrible app. I can't add more feeds. Support doesn't answer my emails
Great app 5/5
Only bad part is I had to pay for app twice.
Search is working now. Great app
I use it every day! 5/5
By Greig G
Great features! And great support from the developer!
Best rss reader 5/5
This is the best RSS reader! It is well organized. I use it all the time. Highly recommend.
Very solid RSS app. Used it for years. 4/5
Very solid RSS app. Used it for years.
Wish you could search your subscribed articles.
Best replacement to google reader 5/5
I was very concerned when google reader was shut down. Combining this app with an "the old reader" account is a perfect combo. Well worth the app price.
Great RSS App 4/5
This is a really great RSS app. I've been using i for a couple years now and definitely recommend it.
the old version was far better 1/5
i paid to upgrade just to remove the nag notes and LOST a lot of functionality.
you've got some nerve.
It Works 5/5
I've used this reader for years. I follow a lot of scientific and economic literature and it just works. It updates quickly and no problems getting to the full articles.
Works as advertised 4/5
I am happy with this newsreader and it's integration with TheOldReader
Great App 5/5
I've been using the app for quite awhile and it meets every one of my feed needs. Fast. Easy to use. Effective.
Great aggregator 4/5
Used the free version but upgrade worth it.
Works great 5/5
I tried a bunch of different tools when Google Reader went away and this was the one I stuck with. It's been solid and the functionality fits with everything I need in an RSS reader. Well done.
What a waste 1/5
Please do not spend any money on this. Complete waste.
Search not working 1/5
Search fails every time,
Had to buy again to get from previous Pro version to this Pro version,
Still no search,
Don't but Pro, not better than free version
Not what I expected 1/5
By Long-Distance Worker
I spent 10 minutes with this. The only thing I see on the screen is the forced login form for a handful of 3rd party sites. No other options in the interface.
Why do I need those other "accounts"? I just want to be able to add my feeds. How difficult is it to make an app that doesn't force you to go through yet another external site? BTW, I tried one of them and they're asking for more money, per month, to have an account there! Seriously, what is this?
I'm deleting this app and I feel that the screenshots are misleading. At least it should be made clear that external accounts are required to be able to use the app.
Background rlupdate and notification still not working! 2/5
Background update and notification is still not working on IOS 10.xx. Don't buy they not fix this error!
It's back and better than ever! 5/5
By Stark Vader
Great as always
Remains my go-to RSS app 5/5
I've been using Feeddler for years, and it remains my favorite way to read. The latest update continues to be solid, and doesn't get in the way of the content.
Great reader! 5/5
I have to open articles in Safari to read long form, but short articles are fine. Still, it's the best laid out RSS reader and one of the most used apps on my phone. I use it with Bazqux, works fine.
Nice RSS Reader - Major Flaw Fixed 4/5
Biggest problem was background updates - now fixed in new version. Can now use the icon badge to alert me of new feeds. Also, a setting to have the app open in a specific area (i.e. feeds, list, etc.) would be helpful.
Best RSS reader. Completely voiceover accessible. 5/5
The only real thing I'd like to see improved is to load more than 50 items at a time on the iPhone.
Best RSS Reader Out There 5/5
Update: One day after posting an update to this review bemoaning the fact that full text view had stopped working, the developer had an update that fixed the issue. I am restoring 5 out of 5 for my review. Works great again!
Update: I always preferred this newsreader because of it's easy to use Full Text View. This feature has turned a little unpredictable in the last two weeks and now does not seem to working at all.
I use this with The Old Reader and it works without a hitch. Posts are easy to see, it's heavily customizable, and it ties into multiple services.
I bought the upgrade without even thinking about it.
Slick and modern.
A must App! 5/5
I am an over the road truck driver. I depend on the news, weather and certain blogs for a safe, productive work day, everyday, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. This app is a must for everything in one, clear, concise spot!
Great for podcasts 4/5
By Alyssa (cakeoryx)
I primarily use this app to keep track of podcasts, as I've found services like stitcher to be unreliable in terms of audio streaming and podcast availability. So far, it's been an excellent experience;
+the audio player works in the background and with the screen locked,
+organization methods work well to keep different podcasts together
+Interface is simplistic and easy to use
My only complaint is that headphone controls do not pause the audio from streaming, which can be a bit cumbersome when I need to pause what is playing only briefly. This doesn't detract from the overall appeal of the app to me, and I wholeheartedly recommend this as an alternative to other podcast services.
Author unresponsive 1/5
I reported a number of bugs to the author (e.g. Images not displayed, full text article view not working, offline sync not working, etc.) and got an initial response but now after 8 weeks and 3 emails, he refuses to respond or fix the problems. Very disappointing
Easy to use. Very stable. 5/5
Great in-app browser to open a link in. Works well with my OldReader. Been using this app for years and will continue to.
Frustrating When Position LOST 3/5
Frustrating When My Reading Position is LOST
Feeddler is mostly a 4-5 Star app when it is working (5-Star if it included search), but when I leave the app to check email or look something up and then return back to Feeddler, it is very VERY FRUSTRATING when Feeddler LOOSES my reading position and takes me all the way back to the Subscriptions list.
Please, please, please do NOT ever loose my reading position when switching to another app and then returning back to Feeddler -- this is so FRUSTRATING that I want to give this app only a 1-Star rating for this since this happens so often (many times per day), but I do like this app very much otherwise.
This issue occurs on an iPhone 7 with 2GB of RAM running the latest version of iOS and without many other apps running. It even occurs after a hard restart (hold Power + Volume Down until Apple logo appears) which should free up some RAM.
If you do have to refresh Feeddler when I return back to it (which I can understand if I haven't used it for a few days or have swiped it away in the App Switcher), then at a minimum, please try to keep track (pointer, bookmark, etc) of the article I was reading along with how far down I've read in that article.
Then restore me back to that article I was reading along with my position in that article and that article's position in its headlines feed list when refreshing the app so that when I am finally done reading that article and go back to the list of headlines screen, nothing is lost, and I can keep looking for other interesting older articles to read without loosing my position in that headlines list either.
Please also add Search, especially for my Starred Items feed, so I can quickly find what I am looking for.
Thank you for all the hard work you've put into Feeddler! Other than the above, this is a wonderful app.
Some features I really love in Feeddler include:
- Support for Larger Font Sizes (nice if even more options here)
- Night (Dark) Mode
- Full Article View Option
- One Time Fee to Remove Ads
- Support for Back Swipe Gesture
- Easy to Use and Pleasant User Interface
Love it 5/5
I have been using the app for many years as my RSS reader. It works great for me.
Handy and updates of content fast 5/5
I like it a lot and it uses most of my battery.
The best rss reader out there! 5/5
Speedy response and fixes to even the most minor issues. Support from various aggregators.
Very good 5/5
By a student and reviewer
I use it daily.
Seriously, one of my favorite apps! 5/5
This is a great RSS reader, nicely designed and easy to use. It also has excellent support for assistive technologies, something I greatly appreciate since I am visually handicapped. It's quite flexible, and allows me to push articles to other applications with ease. Heck, if it supported Voice Dream my life would be just about perfect.
Update: it continues to work great, still wish it interfaced with Voice Dream.
Best RSS Reader 5/5
This is one of my most used apps on my phone. I use Feedly to aggregate and organize all my feeds and prefer FeedlerPro over the native Feedly app. It has a clean, minimalistic design that is incredibly fast and customizable and allows me to quickly look over all my feeds with ease. The hidden gem of this app is the minimalistic UI and the instantaneous article load times. The numerous customization features like a Night theme, when to mark items as being read as I scroll through my feed, preference for how articles are loaded, etc. There are numerous small customization settings that go a long way that makes this app standout above the other numerous RSS reader apps.
I would love to see more gesture based navigation options and 3D Touch features in a future update!
The best rss reader 5/5
By Ron VOIP
Simply the best rss reader I tried. A bit annoyed like everyone to pay again for an iOS 8 version, but I guess it's a small price to pay for an app I use every day.
Truly the best RSS reader 5/5
This is without a doubt the best, easiest to use newsreader out there. It is the main app I use on my phone and works great. CB's support for this program has been great and his responsiveness is amazing.
Best RSS app ever!! 5/5
I have been using Feeddler Pro on my iPhone and iPad, both of which are running iOS 10 flawlessly. I used this app at least an hour everyday to view well over a hundred RSS feeds for past several years. It has many, actually a lot, of features and wouldn't mind paying more for it at all!
Essential App 5/5
By Chris Cardinale
Use this every day. The perfect RSS reader.
