Reeder RSS app makes the jump from iOS to Mac desktops


Reeder, one of the best RSS readers for iOS devices, has just landed on the Mac. It's still in the draft stage, but it's got all the features that make the mobile version awesome. It pulls your feeds straight from Google Reader, making initial set-up extremely quick and easy. Integration with sharing and bookmarking services also carries over from the iOS version of Reeder: Instapaper, Read It Later, Delicious, and sharing via email are all included, along with several others.

In terms of looks, Reeder definitely has an iPad flavor, with the toolbar integrated into the window title bar. You can add your choice of sharing buttons to that toolbar using preferences. The reading area is divided into resizable sections, with your list of feeds and folders on the left, stories from the selected feed or folder in the middle, and the reading area on the right. Reeder is really meant to run full-screen.

As this is a draft, some key features have been left out. The most glaring omissions are feed organization and search, but there's no doubt that they'll be included in a future release. So far, so good, though. Reeder already looks like the most promising OS X feed reader to come along in quite a while.
