I am excited to announce a new iOS app, Feed Hawk. Feed Hawk makes it easy to subscribe to the RSS feed of the website you are visiting.
I have been using RSS readers heavily for years but I have noticed the amount of content I get through my feed reader declining. This is not due to a lack of content. There are hundreds of blogs and other news sources that I enjoy reading. The problem is that when I would land on a website on my iPhone, I would not subscribe to the site. It was not difficult to copy a link from Safari into my RSS reader, but it required just enough steps that I would often not bother to do it. I was inspired by Daniel Jalkut's Subscribe to Feed Safari extension. Subscribe to Feed solved this problem perfectly on OS X. I wanted something analogous on iOS.
Feed Hawk is available in the share sheet of Safari, Chrome, and most other iOS web browsers. Simply open the share sheet and select Feed Hawk to subscribe to the site's RSS feed. If a site offers more than one feed, Feed Hawk will ask you to select the feeds to which you want to subscribe. You can watch my my introductory video for a demonstration.
Feed Hawk works directly with your RSS feed reading service. It supports BazQux Reader, Feed Wrangler, Feedbin, FeedHQ, Inoreader, Minimal Reader, NewsBlur, and The Old Reader. The app supports the iPhone, the iPad, and the iPod Touch. You can buy Feed Hawk now in the App Store for $2.99 (USD).
