A month after a public beta was made available, RSS news reader Reeder 2 has officially launched in the Mac App Store. The original Reeder app was discontinued following the shutdown of Google Reader last July. The new version of the program is compatible with RSS platforms such as Feedbin, Feedly, Feed Wrangler, Fever, and Readability along with support for local and standalone RSS.

Developer Lost Me

When the developer shuttered Reeder for Mac, he mistreated Reeder users with horrible and cavalier communication. Seems like he didn't care about us all that much so I found Feedly. I was still tempted to give R2 a chance - if it was remarkable but to me, based on the screenshots I've seen, R2 looks outdated.

The way the developer handled Reeder users should be a lesson to every future developer.

Almost every software looks great on Mac OS X systems; I'm a windows 8.1 user (not loving it, only because financial issues) and whenever I see an app screenshot like this; a drop of tear is trying to make its way out of my eye.

Decided to hold off buying as the developer will probably charge us again for the OS X 10.10 interface update.:rolleyes:

I've been using the beta since I loved the Reeder 1. I'm sort of disappointed that I have to pay again for Reeder 2, when the only features that it has gained are the new rss services and the new design. This is the same story with the iOS version of Reeder (which I had to pay for again for a new design + new rss services).

I think I will fork over once the beta expires though, since it runs a whole lot smoother than ReadKit does, and I do like the little things about it like the cool animations, gesture support. Reeder also looks nicer than ReadKit.

You can count me in the "Not purchasing again" boat. I've purchased the app several times for iPhone/iPad, and once for Mac. It's been a year without a Reeder for Mac, with little communication, during which time I found ReadKit. I'll be sticking with ReadKit, rather than giving more money to a developer that I'm not quite sure deserves it.
