    Had a look to see what the best RSS reader was for Mac and found Reeder mentioned and so currently taking a "look" at it. Also found there is a Feedly app for Mac but, it gets bad reviews and people say you're better off using the site.
    I was wondering if the same sentiments were founded towards the iOS app?
    Currently using Feedly on my iPhone but, considering buying Reeder - but not sure it's worth the 4 price tag it has, when Feedly (and other RSS readers) are free.
    So was hoping someone could give me their thoughts on which RSS reader to use for the iPhone (and would probably also use it on my iPad). Posts around the web that I could find seemed to be a couple years old so was looking for more recent opinion considering the apps will have been updated, quite possibly numerous times.

    Reeder is indeed worth the price, in my opinion. I've been using it for years after switching over from Feeddler Pro. It's the only RSS app I use.

    Exact same here, daily Feedly user, apps on iPhone and iPad, web site on MacBook Air. Free version works great for me!

    Feedly is my reader of choice on iOS. On Mac I just use the web site.

    DB,
    Are you using the free or the paid version?
    I have the free one and trying to determine if the paid version is worth the $.
    TIA

    I use Newsify. I like the newspaper style layout and it seems to show more headlines on each page than other readers.

    Thanks for the replies, didnt realise anyone had replied, must set up email alerts. Anyway......
    Using Reeder on my Macbook but, am continuining to use Feedly on my iPhone and iPad. I think I prefer the layout of Reeder but, 95% of the time, when I use Feedly on my phone it's to look at saved/starred articles. I've just seen I can change the layout of the app though so think I will save myself 4 . Thanks everyone.

    Just a little update, Im using Feedly on my phone, Reeder on my Macbook still. Decided to open the Feedly app up on the Macbook to see why people prefer using the web version and I noticed that on Feedly (iphone app, macbook app and website) my last saved article is 14th April. But on Reeder I have articles saved from today and yesterday and more than just 3 articles from the 14th. I used the Feedly app on my phone to save the articles for later as well, so not like I used Reeder to star/save the articles.
    I didnt have time this morning to read anything so just saved everything that sounded interesting with the intention of going through it now and unsaving articles. But interestingly if I find the article via my read feed, it shows Ive saved it but, doesnt show in the saved for later list :S.
    Think I may be upgrading to Reeder after all. Or is there a maximum number of items you can have saved for later? Have 132 according to Reeder.

    I have TONS of saved articles saved on Feedly, certainly a lot more that 132.
    If there's a limit, I'm not aware of it.
    Can't explain why yours are not saving properly.
    I'm using Feely app on my iPhone 6S & iPad Air.
    On my MacBook Air, I'm using the Feedly web site.
    I save articles from all three.
    Good Luck
