What Makes Unread Different from Other RSS Readers

Automatic Webpage Text: Unread automatically determines what feeds contain only article summaries. For articles from such feeds, Unread retrieves the full article text from the webpage and displays that. For any feed you can determine whether feed text or webpage text should be displayed by default.

Beautiful Typography: Unread renders articles using the Whitney font from Hoefler&Co.

Designed for Comfort: Move anywhere in the app with a sweep of your thumb, without having to reposition your hand. Unread’s stacked navigation was built from scratch to be the most comfortable interface you’ve ever used. Flick left-to-right to go back from anywhere on the screen. Tug any screen right-to-left to show options for that screen.

Multiple Themes: Unread includes 13 different themes including a Day theme, a Night theme, and a Black theme. You can set one theme for light mode and another for dark mode.

Accessibility: Unread has 100% VoiceOver coverage. Every screen and every feature is available to users with vision impairments. Actions on articles can be quickly triggered using the accessibility rotor. The font sizes are adjustable.

Footnote Popovers: Articles with properly formatted footnotes will show convenient popovers when you need to read a footnote.

iPad Features: Unread has great support for trackpads and multiple windows. Almost all navigation and operations can be performed from a hardware keyboard.

Great Widgets: Unread has widgets that let you monitor recent articles and unread article counts.
