Customer Reviews

  • Very solid and full features RSS reader

    by ansel4

    Has the option to show full text view by default, mark as read on scroll and excellent sharing options.

  • The workhorse on my iphone

    by Phadrus

    Stable, reliable, well designed. You won't be disappointed.

  • Best rss reader around

    by Wyrdd

    Thank you for updating to work past the google reader era. I have no problem buying the pro version to support you for your hard work. I read about 50-60 sites a day and your app is the best. It is clean and does everything I could ask for. It allows me to post to facebook or twitter which is an awesome feature. It runs fast and smooth. Things to add...perhaps more themes and different UI options. No rush. Keep up the great work.

  • Perfect RSS app. The mark as read during scroll feature is awesome.

    by PakaJoe

    Perfect RSS app. The mark as read during scroll feature is awesome.

  • Works easily, love it!

    by hudson2001

    It works as advertised to sync with my google account. The UI is fairly intuitive. It has never crashed. I just wish it was universal since we just bought an iPad. ETA: Well now there is a universal version but I have to pay another $5. :(

  • The Best RSS app on the market

    by n3music

    I've purchased and tried every RSS app. This app is simply the best. My favorite feature is the ability to pinch and spread the screen to make fonts larger or smaller.

  • Great reader

    by Brockstar666

    Simple and easy to read. Especially of you subscribe to a lot of feeds.

  • Best

    by Gary Furash

    If you use Google Reader this is the only interface they should provide

  • Keeps getting better & better

    by Jeremy Barth

    I've used Feeddler for a year-and-a-half and it has become a key enabling tool for me on the go. Every few months an updated version comes out with small but welcome feature enhancements. A recent one was pre-populating the email "To:" field with a configurable recipient of one's choice. Not earthshaking, but it's little things like this that save time and reduce hassle for the frequent user and make this app a pleasure to use.

  • Great little app

    by Jkart

    Fast and useful. Best Rss reader I've found for iPhone.

  • Great app!

    by Mmiller240

    Best reader I've used! Keep up the good work!

    by vdocutter

    It's easy to use, syncs all my feeds with Google,...what more could you ask?

  • Love it!

    by Rischa

    Greatest reader I've tried! Especially now that the Evernote feature works again. Yay!

  • Best reader I used yet

    by MonkeysWithKeyboards

  • ;)

    by Kallakesar Tashkent

    Fantastic app. Thanks to developers.

  • Just got better

    by Dlr xxl

    Latest improvements make it even better Smooth operator

  • Most useful

    by Product manager

    I've used this for over a year because it is a simple and useful rss reader for iPhone.

  • Does not have a good support team

    by ArshamS

    After you reset google password the App does not work and the support team cannot solve problem

  • Most used app

    by Joeychen

    Use it all the time

  • Best reader I've tried

    by forest430

    Pros - easy to read - customizable - updates are often and new features always seem to be useful - never crashes Wishes - syncing for off line reading can be hit or miss, but maybe it's just the feeds themselves that's giving errors, still best I've tried

  • Not perfect

    by John Capone

    But mostly functional. Haven't tried other reader.

  • Latest update needs work

    by Eriksweeklyphoto

    I'd previously given this app 4 stars, but its performance with this latest "update" has really suffered. It's now very laggy and crash prone on my iPhone 4.

  • All the news

    by Professor Gordon

    Simply the best RSS reader. Fast loading & easy to read.

  • Part of my daily routine

    by rsnumber2

    The only app I have used EVERYDAY since I purchased it. Great RSS feeder.

  • Great App

    by Sleepless in your back seat.

    If you're looking for a great RSS reader then you can stop looking because you just found it. It also links to Google Reader which is great as well.

  • They are same

    by محمد متوكل

    Both of Feeddler Pro 4.99$ & Feeddler pro 9.99$ are same

  • Hangs during sync

    by FlydogAZ

    Looks like they will never fix the hanging issue on sync where it gets stuck on "loading," which has plagued this app since iOS 5. Terrible customer service.

  • Nice

    by Savvy User

    Good app. Fast loading.

  • Good, but

    by CPSM72

    Hangs during sync, have to frequently force close. Overall great app accept of that problem.


    by northwestskies

    How do I make this thing to just show me only articles that contain my queried keyword? I always get flooded with multiple unwanted articles that does not show the keyword I requested. Not much of a use otherwise. Please advice.

  • Grrrreat!

    by Snordly

    Nice app. I wish I could search for my stared posts.

  • Helpful app!

    by Mindi9206

    Very organized and helpful app.

  • Love!

    by Arbelmartin

    Love this app! Wouldn't get anything else!

  • Best RSS App I have used!

    by ChopperDave00

    Tried quite a few of the free and paid RSS readers on the AppStore and Feedler is the best IMHO. There are only a few things I have really noticed that could be improved/added to make the app better: Better/More Sensitive Gesture Controls for moving to the next item/article/etc... The swipe functionality in Feedler doesn't always work for me. Ability to filter feed items would be a nice add. More color schemes/theme support would be great. Overall definitely a good buy and very happy with the App. Keep up the good work Devs!

  • The Best RSS App

    by @MattNeithercott

    I had been using this app for quite a while but in my never ending search for newer and better apps went to the Reeder RSS app, and don't get me wrong I loved that app, but came back to this one because it's a great app and has a major feature that the Reeder app does not have, the ability to move to the next article by a swiping motion.

  • Five...

    by David #?

    Love it. Use it every day. Would love it more if you could zoom in on photos inside the subscriptions. When you try, the text is affected but the pic stays the same size.

  • This is my daily even hourly used app.

    by js058515

    I am an information pig when it comes to topics I like. Feeddler helps me get as much as I want. I love this app enough to pay for it and I have a hard time paying for apps.

  • Good App

    by Gamflin

    Works well.

  • Nicely done !

    by Scottcol

    Clean, simple, very easy to use.

  • Best reeder out there!!

    by HeadSwim

    I've used this app for a while and tried out many others. By far this is the best. Awesome look n feel, quick response and great service integration. One other big plus is that the author is very responsive and wonderful to deal with. Could not recommend more. This is one app none of my iOS devices will ever be without!

  • Fully Featured and FAST

    by TheMadJuggler

    I am loyal to NetNewsWire on my Mac, but their mobile app was too frustrating to even check my headlines. When reviews said Feeddler was fast, I didn't expect it to be this snappy. Marking as unread with scrolling is an amazing feature, but it would not work if the app wasn't so speedy! I have a ton of feeds, so this efficiency is key. I also love being able to mark only older feeds as unread and being able to control which feeds to sync. Amazing app! Thanks!

  • Great app

    by ProjektKhamelion

    Works perfect

  • Love it & Use it daily

    by LV Auctioneer

    My primary way of catching up on my favorite newsletters & blogs. I read literally hundreds of posts per day with it, auto-syncs with Google reader, never has downtime.

  • Great feed reader

    by Podcast Listener 2000

    The only feed reader that marks items read as you scroll. It's great.
