The new app sports a revamped design and is compatible with numerous RSS services such as Feedly and Readability, as well as sharing services such as Instapaper, Facebook, and App.net.

Why do people like Feedly? I couldn't be more disappointed with it, possibly the worst UI I've ever seen for RSS.

Gladly paid for the new version. I don't mind paying $5 to support the developer since I use it many times a day! Nothing even comes close to it, imo.

I don't really see how this is any different than the latest Reeder 1. Don't get me wrong, I used Reeder every hour of every day for the past couple years, but this doesn't seem like it warrants a full price tag for what appears to be just a new coat of paint.

Funny that there's such a high correlation between "it's too expensive" and "I use this app all the time" in posts.

So there's not much changed? This means I'm now paying this company $10 over time instead of the original $5? For an app I literally use more than anything else on my phone?

That's fine by me.

I again say that being a previous buyer and user of the iPhone, iPad and OSX versions i feel somewhat disappointed for this price choice.

For now, i'm continuing with the free Feedly versions and I'm waiting until the OSX version (and it's price) to make a decision.

ReadKit on the OSX looks very attractive now ...

Don't feel like paying for this again. Will move to Feedly on iPhone and Mr Reader on iPad.

For iPhone, I use Newsify. I was a longtime Reeder user for iPhone and Mac. On the iPhone, I like Newsify much better than Reeder. It has a lot of preferences to customize the user experience, including the slide to right from left to go back which will be very common in iOS 7 apps.

I have also been very disappointed in Reeder's lack of support. Support emails never get answered and there was not support when google reader was shutdown.

On my Mac, I actually like Feedly a lot, especially the ability of have a different views by feed. So photo intensive feeds can have a more magazine or card view and news feeds can have the typical news view. But the Feedly iPhone app needs a lot of work to improve it.

So if you are still looking for an iPhone RSS app check out Newsify. It is free to try and $.99 to opt out of ads.

Exactly.

Also, everyone keeps saying it's just a UI refresh. Anyone who has actually used the app will know there's a lot more to it than that. For one it's fast as hell. He must have rewritten quite a bit of it. I'm very happy paying this dev for another fantastic version.

The issue is not that the developer wants to change for an update, i support them making money and reeder is a well done app. it's that he has not fixed version 1, and instead is forcing people to upgrade, with the justification that it will take too much time.

If I want to upgrade I will do so because I believe the upgrade is worth the money to me just as I thought the original app was worth my money. Now I do not have that choice because the product i paid for is broken. So i will exercise the only option available to me and refuse to support a developer that uses such practices.
