Reeder 3 for OS X updated with new design and El Capitan support

For RSS feed readers, there is no better app for Apple devices than Reeder. The best RSS app has gotten even better with Reeder 3 for OS X, which brings a new design and multiple themes, OS X 10.11 El Capitan compatibility and many other new features.

Reeder 3 for OS X updated with new design and El Capitan support 3

The new app is much faster to launch and use than before. The Yosemite/El Capitan type graphics make it pleasing on the eye. The transparency/blur effects make it seem like a native app rather than a third party one.

Reeder supports almost all popular RSS feed reading apps. Digg is not part of the list.

  • Feedbin
  • Feedly
  • Feed Wrangler
  • FeedHQ
  • NewsBlur
  • The Old Reader
  • Inoreader
  • Minimal Reader
  • BazQux Reader

Self hosted service Fever is also supported.

Following ‘read later’ services are supported. Readability can also be used to read full length articles without opening a browser. Useful for feeds in which websites only show a summary.

  • Instapaper

The new update also has multiple themes and customization options so you have the option to disable the transparency effects if you don’t like them.Reeder 3

I have been using Reeder 3 through out the beta with my Feedly account and love the app. Reeder 3 is available in the Mac App Store for $9.99 and is worth every cent. For existing Reeder 2 users, the new version is a free update.

Highly recommended!
