    Curious to see what RSS reader everyone is using for their 6 & 6+. The Feedly hasn't been optimized yet so the app looks and feels terrible.

    I previously used Reeder 2 as my daily driver, but I've actually moved away from RSS all together and mainly use Twitter now. I just checked and it doesn't look like it's been optimized for the 6 or 6+ yet.

    Newsify working great hereon iPhone 6. No iOS8 version yet, but I just bumped down the font sizes one notch in advanced settings and it works perfectly and looks good.

    I used Reeder 2, but it looks awful on the iPhone 6. I'm eagerly awaiting their update.

    Looks like we are all just patiently waiting. I bought the Feed Wrangler app thinking it was a one-time purchase because it looked so good on the preview. Come to find out it's subscription based, and I aint about that life.

    :D I don't blame you. IMHO Reeder has always been the best option. I didn't mind the Feedly app since I was using their service, but I always went back to Reeder for the interface.

    I just want one that doesn't make it look like the resolution is 800x600 on a 1920x 1080 monitor

    Hopefully when it's optimized for the 6 and 6+ it won't anymore.

    Well, my favorite RSS reader, Fiery Feeds, just got updated today with a widget and iPhone 6 optimization. But I don't yet have an iPhone 6 so I can't say how it looks.

    I mostly use Newsify but still have the Feedly app on my iPhone 6 and think it looks pretty good.

    Here are a couple caps.

    Finally! This app looks clean, and nice minimalistic theme. Definitely will pay $4.99 USD for this. Thank you.

    Just got an app update for Newsify with iPhone6/6+ changes and I see on Twitter the Feedly app will also soon be updated.

    Yes!!! I saw the update for Newisfy last night and started using it this morning. Gladly paid the $2.99 to remove the ads. This is the RSS Reader I was looking for. I like Fiery Feeds, but I noticed a lot of lag or it would just lock up completely. I would like to use this app instead, just cause of the UI. But Newsify wins my vote right now.
