    Hi there.

    Right now Reeder for iPad and OS X no longer exist. Only the iPhone version is still available and for free.

    What's the best RSS client in your opinion, with RELIABLE syncing between iPad and iPhone versions?

    Also a nice design is a must. Maybe it's hard to beat the king (Reeder) in that regard, but I really need some eye-candy when it comes to reading my feeds.

    Cheers.

    Mr. Reader bar non. It was my favorite with Google reader and now without. Just sign up for feedly and import your Google reader feeds.
    Then sign in with Mr. Reader.

    The developer is working on new versions of Reeder for iPad and OS X. Exact dates are unknown but in the meantime, you can pick one of the supported services and put up with inferior free iPad or OS X client in the meantime.

    I am hoping it would support NewsBlur, but in the meantime, I am using free Feedly.

    I'm aware of his plans on the iPad and Mac versions, but I've waiting for a damn long time, so now it's time to move.

    True. On my MacBook I use Digg with Fluid. I think Digg has the best feed aggregater at this point and using Fluid is almost as good as having a dedicated app. There's also a universal Digg app that's pretty good too. Overall I prefer Mr. Reader but Digg is the best solution if syncing is a priority.

    I have been using Newsify on both my iPhone and iPad. It uses the Feedly service to sync and works perfectly.

    Recently discovered Readkit for RSS reading on OS X. Also syncs with Feedly.

    I downloaded Mr. Reader — and so far it's the best "traditional" RSS client I've tried on the iPad.

    I think I'm going to stay with Reeder on the iPhone and Mr. Reader on the iPad, using Feedly as syncing platform, though I'd prefer to have the same client on the iPhone, iPad and Mac.

    Yeah Mr. Reader is so good on the iPad that I'm willing to forego a sync option. Although as I said earlier Digg is decent.

    But if you use a platform like Feedly you could still sync Mr. Reader with some other client on the iPhone.

    Yes I know that and that's how I use it. What I mean is having the same app on all my devices that syncs everything. For the most part it doesn't really matter because once a Feedly feed is marked as "read" it'll usually show up the same way everywhere else.

    Previously I used Reeder on all three devices: Mac, iPhone. Now I'm using Feedbin as the back end with Reeder on the iPhone, Mr. Reader on the iPad, and ReadKit on the Mac.

    I'm pleasantly surprised to be quite content with Mr. Reader and ReadKit.

    Then weeks will turn into months.

    Thanks for the news anyway. Though I'll stay with Mr. Reader.
