Lamenting over the death of Google Reader was a favorite past time for me – but I have moved on to discovering great alternatives that can deliver great services without the additional cost. Luckily, the makers of Reeder are making their iPad and Mac app available for free.
You’ll still have to pay $2.99 for the iPhone app, but the iPad version would have cost $4.99 prior to today. Reeder’s announcement suggested that the app will only be free until its next update:
Reeder for Mac and iPad will be updated to 2.0 in the coming months. Version 2.0 will add all the features of the iPhone version, including all sharing and syncing services. Until then, Reeder for Mac and Reeder for iPad will be free, starting today.
