Reeder (iOS/OSX) will "add more services to choose from"

Postby Beun » 02 Apr 2013, 23:33

So what's the plan?
Reeder for iPhone
The iPhone version already has support for other services than Google Reader. I'm currently working on integrating Feedbin and adding support for standalone/local RSS (still experimental). You'll get these features with the next update (3.1) which should be ready soon. That's just the beginning, the plan is to add more services you can choose from in the next weeks and months.

Does this mean that, in theory, we can view TT-RSS via Reeder?

A question for Fox: Can external applications "read" TT-RSS?
If so, we should all email Reeder for TT-RSS support 8)

I already did. I have been using the Reeder app for the last year myself, and have now returned to using tt-rss. Obviously I miss using the Reeder app now and so I emailed the developer to see if he could possibly add support for tt-rss to the app and pointed him to the web page describing the API ( http://tt-rss.org/redmine/projects/tt-r ... iReference ) for him to take a look at. In theory it wouldn't be too difficult for him to add support for this, but he'll probably only contemplate it if he thinks enough people want that feature. So if anybody else does want it then send him an email yourself so that he realises. This would definitely be a good way of getting an iPhone app for tt-rss.

Something you should check out however is the mobile app found at https://github.com/mboinet/ttrss-mobile . This has been based on Reeder and has exactly the same look and feel. I've been using this for the last week or so and it's a very capable replacement. The only downside is it's web based and so has no local syncing of content so every new group of articles you read has to be loaded before they are displayed. However it loads up to 60 at a time and on wifi or 3G with decent coverage it works really quite well, easily fast enough to use.
