    Although Google Reader shut down quite some time ago, there are plenty of alternative RSS services today that are alive and strong.

    The highly popular Reeder 2 RSS Client for iOS was brought to iOS 7 early in the public release of the operating system last year with support for those alternative RSS services, but notably, there hasn't been any Mac OS X version of the application to speak of.

    On Friday, however, that changed. The developer of the popular Reeder 2 application has released a free public beta of Reeder 2 for Mac OS X and it fully supports OS X Mavericks. The interface is very familiar to those using the Reeder 2 application on iOS, and it supports all of the following RSS services:

    - Feedbin syncing
    - Feedly syncing
    - Feed Wrangler syncing
    - Fever syncing
    - Readability syncing
    - Local/standalone RSS (no sync)

    While the public beta is free, when the application comes out of beta it is expected to be a paid application and is expected to be offered in the Mac App Store. If you want to participate in the free public beta of Reeder 2 for Mac OS X, you can grab it from the developer's Web site at this link.

    Congratulations to 1000 people who will try this. Have no idea why these apps "like" to remain exclusive to Mac platform.
