    Hey all,

    Looking for opinions on best RSS reader to work with my iOS devices and MacBook Pro. All equally important, however iPhone is where I'll normally check first.

    All I've ever used was Google Reader which was great in keeping an RSS update from Tumblr, even if the post was taking down.

    I'm wondering if Apple themselves have an RSS feature in Safari that communicates w/ all 3 devices.

    I moved all of my feeds to Feedly and use Reeder on the iPhone, Mr. Reader on the iPad and ReadKit on the Mac. All of the three sync with Feedly.

    So you're saying Reeder, Mr. Reader & ReadKit all sync up up to date whats been read and what hasn't all due to Feedly?

    If this is the case, and i'm honestly not sure whether it is or not, I have to ask.. Why not just use Feedly? Again, this is coming from someone thats just trying to get a feel for an applicable RSS solution.

    Just personal preference. I used to use Reeder for all three but they dropped the ball on updating after Google Reader stopped. Also when I was developing my habits, ReadKit was the only Mac App available. Now Feedly has apps for Mac and IOS.

    I moved to Feedly when Google Reader was discontinued.

    I've been using Newsify, a universal iOS app on my iPhone 5 and iPad Air and the Feedly web portal for the Feedly service. I've tried out a few other Mac and iOS apps including Feedly's iOS app but keep going back to Newsify. Feedly's web interface doesn't suck, I like it better than Reeder (I've tried and deleted the beta) and Readkit (which is in my Applications folder pretty much unused...).

    I exported my Google Reader feeds, imported into Feedly, and it's been smooth reading since...

    I use Reeder on all three, sync'd through Feedly. I just like the way it looks and functions.
