My (planned) RSS Setup

I don’t know [fusion_builder_container hundred_percent=”yes” overflow=”visible”][fusion_builder_row][fusion_builder_column type=”1_1″ background_position=”left top” background_color=”” border_size=”” border_color=”” border_style=”solid” spacing=”yes” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” padding=”” margin_top=”0px” margin_bottom=”0px” class=”” id=”” animation_type=”” animation_speed=”0.3″ animation_direction=”left” hide_on_mobile=”no” center_content=”no” min_height=”none”]Chris Gonzales or David Sparks but I since Chris copied David I’m going to copy them both.

#The Engine — Feed Wrangler#

I hadn’t picked a RSS service until after reading Chris and David’s article. Like Chris, [Reeder][REEDER] is my favorite RSS reader. The iPhone version was updated earlier this week to support [Feedly][FEEDLY] and [Feed Wrangler][FEEDWRANGLER].

I had already been using Reeder with [Feedbin][FEEDBIN] and then [Fever][FEVER]. Feedbin initially had some performance issues but the developer migrated to higher performing servers. Fever is performing badly. I’m using it with [Readkit][READKIT] and it often takes a few minutes before I see any content in the app.

So … Feedbin cost $20/year and Fever was a one time fee of $30. Feed Wrangler will be $19/year and Chris, David and Shawn like it. I plan on using Feed Wrangler for now.

#iPad — Reeder#

Reeder’s developer is working to add Feed Wrangler support. I plan on using Reeder as soon as the app is updated. A lot of people swear by [Mr. Reader][MRREADER] but I’m waiting.

#iPhone – Reeder#

I’m currently using Reeder for iPhone with Fever but I’ll switch to Feed Wrangler.

#iMac – Reeder#

Unfortunately until Reeder is updated to support Feed Wrangler I’m stuck using ReadKit. It works. But … it doesn’t support Buffer or ADN for sharing. I’m a Mac user so unlike Chris I will another option when Reeder is updated.

#Web –
The front end isn’t very impressive. It’s ugly compared to Feedly and Feedbin. I don’t expect I’ll be using it much once Reeder for OS X is updated.


I’ll be using (updated) Reeder for iOS and OS X with Feed Wrangler as my backend. If Feed Wrangler turns out not to meet my needs I can easily switch to Feedbin or Feedly or Fever or maybe even NewsBlur.

Can’t wait for Reeder.

[REEDER]: “Reeder”
[FEEDWRANGLER]: “Feed Wrangler”
[NEWSBLUR]: “NewsBlur”
[READKIT]: “ReadKit”
[FEEDLY]: “Feedly”
[FEEDBIN]: “Feedbin”
[FEVER]: “Fever”
[MRREADER]: “Mr Reader”[/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
