Well after all of the positive things I’d heard about Reeder 5, I decided to give it a whirl and was pretty underwhelmed.
Bare in mind that I’m comparing it with Fiery Feeds and before that my beloved Mr Reader.
It’s OK as an app. I tried it with iCloud syncing but two things have annoyed me massively, so I’m reaching out to the MPU community to see if I’ve simply missed something.
- Ordering of articles. As standard they are presented newest first, but I like oldest first, so I changed the setting and nothing happened. Still getting newest first
- There doesn’t seem to be a way that when (in the article view) I scroll, anything which scrolls off the top of the screen is marked as read. Several of the feeds I check are firehouses, so I scroll through and if I don’t get to the bottom it doesn’t matter as those articles I’ve scrolled past are marked read.
These two things will stop me using it, per my preference, so any help would be appreciated.
