Short answer is Yes - I use Fiery Feeds
...and so much better than the cesspool that is Facebook.
I use Reeder on the Mac and NetNewsWire (or Reeder) on my phone. Everything is synced via Feedly, but Feedbin looks pretty great too.
Twitter was more useful for a bit, but algorithms have wrecked the communication so I'm back to RSS. BazQux and NetNewsWire are my go-to tools and I can't wait for them to work together.
I use the Feedly service. On Mac / Chrome I just use the Feedly webapp and quick go through all new/unread feed items with "j" (keyboard shortcut). On Android I use the Feedly mobile app. I've used / tried many RSS desktop apps throughout the years — these were my picks way back when: Mac – NetNewsWire, Linux – RSSOwl, Windows – QuiteRSS.
If they made a widespread comeback it could really be a great alternative to Twitter and Facebook, both of which have an overall negative impact on my mental health. I tend to rely on LinkedIn for business news but the conversation isn't quite right there either. Must check if we still offer a feed on our site.
I use RSS for a few things:
Sending things to Instapaper, which then sends them to my Kindle. I consume a number of blogs and newsletters (Stratechery, AVC, Wait But Why) via RSS --> Instapaper --> Kindle.
Podcasts! Most of us don't actually interact with the RSS urls for podcasts, but that ecosystem still runs entirely on RSS, and lots of folks are using private RSS feeds to give exclusive content to paid subscribers via things like Patreon.
However, it seems like I am the only one who reads feeds these days. Newbies in company even do not know what RSS is
When Google Reader died, I first switched to Fever, a self-hosted RSS reader service that I loved. It was just simple and easy to use—never worked great on mobile web, but most of the major iOS RSS feed apps supported it.
Once it quit being supported and my install had some issues, I ended up going with Newsblur. In a similar vein, you could self-host it if you want, but I'm happy paying for the service to sync feeds. And it has a bit of the old Google Reader-style network to discover feeds others like.
I use its web view on desktop, then on mobile use Reeder to sync NewsBlur and Instapaper.
Now, my problem is I'm subscribed to too many RSS feeds especially for SaaS products that either rarely update their blogs or rarely publish something I'm interested in (especially updates about their products). I think most sites should offer far more RSS feeds so you can subscribe to the specific things you want to read. NewsBlur helps here a bit as it has filtering, but that takes a bit of time to get right.
@unread_app is my personal favorite on iOS.
[I like] The gesture and the minimalistic style. Not to mention it continues to sync with the Fever API.
my two favorites @newsifyapp @NetNewsWire
For the @NetNewsWire the simplicity, easy to use and overall great app.
For the @newsifyapp I really love the newspaper layout. Sometimes you don't have the time to read all the news, so you can have a glance of all of them. I'm young, but i started reading the newspaper, so it's always compelling to read the news in similar way.
I’ve used @unread_app, @FieryFeeds, @FeedWrangler and a few others that just didn’t fit my mental model for RSS.
I have consistently used @reederapp for years on Mac and iOS.
Now that @NetNewsWire is back and great, I use it on iOS and still use Reeder on Mac.
RSS is great.
I use @FieryFeeds since a couple of months now! I love it! If they add Global Search which they want to do this year as far as I am concerned, then it’s perfect!
