Love RSS feeds? So do we!!
RSS feeds are a great way to follow updates on your favorite website. However, some sites set up their feeds to only show a portion of each entry, you know, to get you to click through to their actual website. We find that really annoying, and were sure you do too.
Which is why, unlike other RSS feed readers, that either push you into a browser (in-app or otherwise), or depend on third party text parsing services and require you to be online to fetch the full text of one article at a time (which makes it no different from having to click/tap through to a website), in lire, you get your favorite RSS feeds as they shouldve been. You dont need to click through to any website (though, you do still have the option to, if you really wanted). It takes your favorite partial feeds, does its magic, and converts them in to full feeds, so you dont have to click/tap on those annoying Read more or Continue reading links.
Once theyre cached, you dont even need to be connected to read your full-text feeds.
Use as a standalone feed reader,
sync with any of the several services: Feedly, Feedbin, FeedHQ, The Old Reader, Inoreader, BazQux Reader, Newsblur.
Pros and cons of lire (Full-text RSS) app for iPhone and iPad
lire (Full-text RSS) app good for
And I tried many.
Perfect for anyone who wants to be able to read *offline*
I totally love this app! Its useful for people who have daily access to bad-quality 3G connection. Its just a matter of refreshing the feeds list right in the morning at home and enjoy the articles while on subway or bus. Plus, its THE alternative to usual RSS readers. It caches the whole article.
Just a request: it would be very appreciated if you guys update it to an iOS 7 layout. Id be really grateful.
I like this app a lot. It is really well done. If you are looking for an accessible version for reading feeds get this one!
dies ist ein sehr guter Rss-reader. die Artikel können Runtergeladen werden also man muss nicht auf die Webseite wechseln um den gesamten artikel zu lesen. auch unterstützung für voiceover für blinde User sind da.
Dear Developer, i like that App very very much. but i hope in the future, there will come a Translation in German! Thanks a lot for the great Voiceover support and for this thing, that this nice app is accessible. Much other Developers can do that also, but i know, that so many People dont know about Voiceover! thanks and i hope, there are much nice Funktions in the next updates. Happy birthday, for lire ;-)
The modern rss reader. Double tap for full screen is a good thing. Huge bug where landscape font size isnt the same when in portrait mode.
Sound should be off by default. A nice touch would be to mute the sound of the Sound switch turning off, and play the sound of it turning on (currently the opposite).
Also, adding a new feed should refresh it automatically.
Keep up the great work.
Some bad moments
Not happy with this app at all. I want my money back, please.
"User Interface Sound"と"Retrieve full text articles"と"Articles per feed : 10"だけ。
The app has some bugs such as with image caching within articles. I mention this and ask when we shall expect an update to the developer and the response I get is "It will be ready when its ready". He also accuses me of interrupting him by asking. The last update was 9 months ago which did not fix anything and I asked only once about the next update since then. Better to pay more for alternatives than getting this treatment.
When clicking on images and zooming in/out the theme keeps changing from default to "night". Annoying.
Waiting for a embededd video support, otherwise simply perfect. Thumbs up
Simple yet packed with features. Excellent also for offline reading.
