    I used Safari Shared Links to load RSS feeds. In the iOS 11 and MacOS High Sierra Betas that feature is gone! How I am going to survive? What is everyone else going to do?

    Yes I know but what ones work good between iOS and MacOS and allow you to easily add sites via the share sheet?

    None that I’m aware of... also many RSS reader apps seem to be abandoned at this point. It’s a major bummer to have the pretty great RSS feature in mobile safari replaced with... history.

    First: It's a beta.

    Second: It's not even a public beta, it's a developer beta. It's entirely possible that they just haven't re-implimented it in Safari yet. In fact, it's highly likely that is the case. In the next build it will magically re-appear. Then in the build after that it'll be gone again. That's the way developer betas work.

    Third: There are plenty of RSS Reader options that will work with iOS and macOS—though most are now web-based options such as Feedly. Off the top of my head there is NetNewsWire for iOS, macOS and tvOS (costs $28 for it all), and NewsExplorer for iOS and macOS ($10 I believe). Free apps are hard to come by any more. As Vegsvisur mentioned above, most have been abandoned because there's simply no real market for them.

    Fourth: Adding via ShareSheet is the tough part... not many options there. Although if I recall, Feedly offers a share sheet feature.

    Once Google killed their RSS Reader service, Twitter & Facebook pretty much replaced RSS for most people.

    FWIW, it is also missing from the latest Safari Technology Preview.

    Yea, personally I'm using Unread, which I'd liked before... but hopefully they'll give the option to use shared links back by the time the prod release is out, bc for me at least dedicated RSS readers are too heavy.

    When Google reader shutdown, I started using theoldreader.com for reading RSS feeds. It's laid out and works just like Google reader did. When Google reader announced they were shutting down, The Old Reader opened up as a Google reader alternative.

    I use Reeder on Mac OS and iOS synced to Feedly.com (free). It works great. Better than Safari ever did with RSS.
