I’ve been beta testing the app, and it is wonderful. Most of what I said about Unread for the iPhone apply — well the good things. I don’t really like checking RSS on my iPhone anymore — it’s too good on the iPad.
Here’s what Stephen Hackett had to say:
Like most apps that exist on both the iPhone and iPad, the new tablet version of the app is great to read with. Unread’s lack of Chrome makes the app just about indistinguishable from something like Instapaper or Pocket.
Agreed, which makes it a lovely way to read your articles.
Thanks to the larger screen, Unread works better for two core aspects: focus on text and comfort.
I think Mikhail Madnani hits the nail on the head for me:
Mr Reader is great for triaging and working on your list quickly if you subscribe to loads of feeds and Unread now provides the best reading experience.
I am a big fan of Mr Reader, and the change between the two is jarring — but I think a change well worth making. Go buy it, and be happy with your RSS zen.
