Unread for Mac will have the same pricing structure as Unread for iPhone and iPad. Most functionality in the app will be free. No purchase or subscription is required to use Unread. Similar to the way premium features work on iPhone and iPad, a subscription will make these premium features available on your Mac:

Caching: Cache webpage text and images ahead of time.

Save to Unread: A share extension that creates an article in Unread from the webpage you are visiting with Safari, Chrome, Firefox, or any other web browser. This works with Unread Cloud, Local, Feedly, Feedbin, and NewsBlur accounts.

Custom Dock Icon: Unread offers 32 different dock icon options. The icons all have the same shape but each has a different color scheme. The alternate icon is displayed in the dock while Unread is running.

Article Actions: Unread’s article actions let you save articles to Instapaper, Pinboard, Plinky, Pocket, Raindrop.io, Readwise, and Safari Reading List; share article links via email; and share article links via iMessage.

Widget Customization: Limit articles or unread article counts shown by widgets to specific feeds or folders.

Premium Support: Paying customers get first class customer support.

A single subscription to Unread’s premium features will make those premium features available on Mac, iPhone, and iPad.

Price Changes

Effective July 1, 2024, I am raising the price for an annual subscription to Unread’s premium features to $29.99 (USD) per year for new subscribers. I am raising the price for a monthly subscription to $4.99 (USD) for new subscribers. Prices in different countries and currencies will vary.

These price changes will only affect new subscribers. If you are already subscribed at the current level when the price change takes effect, the subscription price will not change for you and you will get access to premium features on the Mac.

I have not yet chosen a release date for Unread for Mac. It will be some number of weeks after this price change.

Great Time to Subscribe

If you have been considering subscribing to Unread’s premium features or moving from a monthly plan to an annual plan, doing so before July 1 is a great way to take advantage of the lower price. You can do so now from Unread on your iPhone or iPad. Please be aware that once the price change takes effect, I will have no way to give a new subscriber the lower price.
