Reeder 2 RSS reader now available for iPhone and iPad

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: News, App Updates, New Apps, $4.99

Reeder 2 RSS app

We loved Reeder for iOS and Mac, and the thoughtful RSS reading app was fantastic, right up until Google pulled the plug on Google Reader, a service that was essential to the usability of Reeder--at least on the Mac and iPad. Now, developer Silvio Rizzi is back with his second act: Reeder 2. Unlike the first version, Reeder 2 is a universal binary, which means that for the price of the app, you get both the iPhone and iPad versions included. The design language of Reeder 2 is updated to match the look and feel of iOS 7, and gone is the requirement and reliance on Google Reader. In its place, Reeder 2 now allows you to pull and sync data from Feedbin, Feedly, Feed Wrangler, Fever, and can even act as your RSS storage app in and of itself.

You can pick up Reeder 2 now for $4.99.

Pulse iPad RSS reader is visually appealing

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: News, iPad Apps, $3.99

Get a look at the Pulse News Reader. While magazines are trying to reinvent themselves for tablets, we like Pulse because of how it makes RSS feeds look fantastic. You are limited to 20 feeds, but this isn’t meant to be your go to RSS reader. Instead, you are essentially creating your own digital magazine with content pulled from your 20 favorite sites. The app sells for $3.99, and is available now.

Google’s RSS Reader Now Wii-Compatible

Posted by Chris Pereira Categories: Internet, Nintendo, Wii, Wireless

Nintendo wiimoteGoogle Reader has always been a personal favorite of mine among online RSS readers. It’s light, is a part of your Google account, and works well – can’t really ask more than that. While porn and gaming sites have been quick to implement Wii-friendly versions of their sites in order to garner more traffic, Google has now done the same with their RSS reader.

4 Color Rebellion found the page, which has an adjusted resolution and improved functionality for the Wiimote. As Google says, “Google Reader can take advantage of the buttons on your Wiimote, letting you navigate easily from the comfort of your couch.” The controls are as follows:

  • up/down: scroll up/down
  • right/left: next/previous item
  • 1 button: show subscriptions
  • 2 button: show links

When showing subscriptions:

  • up/down: previous/next subscription
  • right: select current subscription
  • left: close
  • -/+: collapse/expand folder

The page can be found here. The number of reasons to actually move from the chair in front of you TV is dwindling.
