• Reeder 3 RSS Application for Mac OS X 10.10 and Later Goes Into Public Beta

    Silvio Rizzi's hit OS X RSS reader application Reeder 2 is coming ever so closer to becoming obsolete as the developer works on bringing Reeder 3 to the hands of the public.

    A public beta of Reeder 3 is now available to download for free from the developer's Web site, allowing the public to download and try the Reeder 3 application before it hits the Mac App Store. The application is designed specifically for OS X 10.10 Yosemite and later, and will play nicely with OS X 10.11 El Capitan later this year when the operating system is released in the Fall by Apple.

    Reeder 3, like its predecessor, supports the all of the following RSS services:

    • Feedbin
    • Feedly
    • Feed Wrangler
    • FeedHQ,
    • NewsBlur
    • The Old Reader
    • Inoreader
    • Minimal Reader
    • BazQux Reader
    • Fever
    • Readability
    • Instapaper

    The Reeder 2 application from the Mac App Store is a $9.99 purchase, and when released, Reeder 3 will follow its footsteps. Those that already own Reeder 2 will be able to download Reeder 3 completely free of charge, as it will be a free upgrade for existing customers.

    A full change log of the Reeder 3 public beta can be found below:
