The 3 Best RSS feeders (2021): Feedly, Inoreader, and Tips
Automation requires a pro account. Pro accounts also get some nice features, like the ability to integrate IFTTT and Zapier, an offline mode for mobile apps. Also with this is my own favorite: keeping your YouTube account in sync with your RSS reading. You can watch YouTube videos in Inoreader, and the next time you log into YouTube, you don’t have a ton of unbroken videos.
Inoreader offers a free (with ads) account, which is great for testing the service to see if it meets your needs. If you do, the Pro account is $ 7 a month (cheaper if you buy a year ahead), which brings more advanced features and support for multiple feeds.
Best for Beginners
Feedly is probably the most popular RSS reader on the web, and for good reason. It’s well -designed, easy to use, and offers multiple search options so you can easily add all of your favorite sites. It doesn’t have one thing that makes Inoreader a bit better in my view-YouTube syncing-but otherwise feedly is a very good option.
It even has some features that Inoreader doesn’t, like integration with Evernote (you can store articles in Evernote) and a notes feature for writing your own thoughts on stories. Feedly also chose Leo, the company’s AI search assistant, to help filter your feeds and enter the content you want. In my testing, I found it to be very good, but a big part of what I like about RSS is that there is no AI – I don’t want automatic filtering. Depending on how you use RSS, however, it can be a useful feature.
Like others here, Feedly offers iOS and Android apps with a web interface. Feedly free up to 100 feeds. A Pro subscription is $ 8 a month (cheaper if you pay for a year) and can do many features like notes, save to Evernote, and read without ads. A Pro + account gives you AI features and more for $ 12 a month.
Best For DIYers
Newsblur is an inspiring simple old school RSS reader. You won’t find AI or YouTube syncing here-it’s for reading the RSS feed and getting on with your life. It can subscribe to all the different content (including newsletters), read full stories (even from RSS feeds that don’t offer them), mix with IFTTT, and even track changes in the story when a publisher updates an article.
