Unread is a great RSS reader for iPhone. I have been putting it off for a while, due to my impression that it was only for people that didn’t use Instapaper. Oh man was I wrong.
Ben Brooks put out a great article about it today.
What I found in Unread was not only a beautiful app, but a highly functional app — even when asked to do something it does not feel it is explicitly designed to do.
This is spot on. It’s not as easy to send stuff to Instapaper, as it would be with for example Reeder. But I still think it is more or less the perfect RSS reader for iPhone. It makes it easier to read the shorter articles right there. While I still have the opportunity to send the longer articles to Instapaper, even though it takes another click.
At the end of the day, Unread has won me over, as it is just too pretty to not use. Watch your back Reeder.
It’s a beautiful app, with a fresh aproach. I just deleted Reeder from my phone.
