Feeddler 2.0 release

Feeddler's iPhone-only Pro version has been approved by Apple. There are not many users on this one since I have encouraged users to purchase the universal version. I keep this version in the App Store so I can continue to update the app for users. Most of you need to wait a bit more for Feeddler 2.0 release.

After the last blog entry, other than Bazqux Reader, I added two services to Feeddler 2.0 update: FeedHQ and The Old Reader. Bazqux costs $2/month and supports the most Feeddler features including custom feed sorting. FeedHQ costs $12 a year or you can host this open source yourself. Feeddler will support self-hosting FeedHQ later. Both Bazqux and FeedHQ offer 30-day free trial. And I don't take any cut from these subscription fees. The Old Reader is free. No starring or article tagging support for the first API release, but they will work on these features next.

All these three services are developed by highly dedicated individuals or teams. I encourage all users to try them all. Feeddler 2.0 still supports multiple accounts like before, and also from multiple services now. You can still use Google Reader till 7/1 with Feeddler 2.0. Feedly support should come next.

So will we need to do anything to make sure we don't lose all of our starred articles and tags? Thanks!

Would like to have Feedly support as it has cross platform syncing . Pls make it soon.

This is good news! I've tried a number of the back-end replacements for Google Reader and so far BazQux is the only one that properly replicated my folder structure. I'm looking forward to the new universal version of Feeddler. Thanks for working on this, I know that Google didn't give developers a lot of time to work on back-end replacements or adapt client apps to use new back-ends. Your work is appreciated. I'd buy your app all over again for getting this done. :)

Am confused. Free version updated to 2.0 but not paid Pro version? What gives?

pghcoder said...

And, in fact, I just purchased the iPhone-only version to try out BazQux with even though I'll use the universal app normally... when it comes out.

And its working great so far! Can't wait for the version I can run on the iPad. :)

Jon,

He updated the iPhone-only version, both the free and pro versions. But Apple hasn't approved the universal versions yet (both free and pro). The universal version is the one that runs on both iPhone and iPad.

I just purchased the iPhone-only pro version to try it out with BazQux. So it is available but its a separate purchase from the universal one. But, hey, its $4.99. I purchased Feeddler years ago, its about time I pay him a little more money for all the upgrades since then. (Apple should allow for paid upgrades)

Great news, current set of supported back ends sound promising. Many thanks for evolving the app!

Hal said...

Great, thanks!

We are a big team 100+ people and decided to switch from Google Reader to The Old Reader. It's just the option that best suits our needs.

We look forward to see it fully implement with your app, which is just perfect. The final set will be awesome as soon as you start offering full support to The Old Reader!

Thanks!

When I try to make BazQux my default reader (instead of Google Reader), it asks for my BazQux username and password. I was never sent one, however, and when I try to put in my Google username and password, that doesn't work.

So do I have a unique username and password on BazQux or not? Any ideas from any of you on how to login to FeedlerRSS using BazQux?

vbd said...

If you login to your BazQux account with e.g. Google you find in the preferences an option 'Mobile Login' where you can define username and password for the app client.

Is the update for the paid Pro version expected before Google goes dead? I tried the new free one with TheOldReader to see how they'd do as a service and it loks good....but the Evernote support in the paid version of Feeddler is critical for me.

Andrew Burns said...

Will there be support for Tiny Tiny RSS?

Brian Combs said...

Just signed up for the FeedHQ trial. If I'm following things correctly, when the new version of Feedler Pro comes out, I'll be able to use it as my feed, correct?

travithian said...

Update for Feeddler Pro is up! \o/ Looks like everything's working fine - with bazqux, at least, as it's what I'm using. Was able to import all my feeds and starred items :)

McBeemer said...

I second the support for tiny tiny RSS. Already got that running. Feedler support for this would be awesome!
Love Feedler and would prefer not having to switch as it is my preferred RSS reader for iPad/iPhone.
Thanks for building it!

Stevem said...

I would love to have Tiny Tiny RSS support as well. I can customise that and then view it through Feeddler which is far and away the best iOS reader.

jwhite1868 said...

Any plans to support https://feedbin.me/ on the roadmap? It seems as though many iOS apps support it and they have something few others have - privacy. :o)

Josie said...

Nice to see the update. I can't get the Account settings to link for TheOldTown reader but have emailed you, so hoping you can provide some guidance.

Vadym Osadchuk said...

I'm owner of pro version and I love your product. But now I'm missing one thing - support for Tiny Tiny Rss.
Please, please add support for Tiny Tiny RSS:

Thanks

I'd like to see hive reader support if possible...

No requests for adding XYZ support here. I just wanted to thank you for your dedication to providing a great product. Keep it up!

Definitly waiting for Feedly!

Snow said...

I just registered for bazQux. I look forward to the updated Feeddler for ipad.

Hi. I am trying to import my two google reader accounts, through the new Feedler Pro, to bazQux. I cannot figure out how to do it, and I am running out of time. Can you (or somebody) post step by step instructions? Sorry to be so dumb.

I echo what everyone else is saying about tiny tiny rss. I would LOVE to see it supported and would gladly make a donation.

Just wanted to thank you for the great suppor of a great product!

Matt Dittrich said...

Another big THANKS for your dedication to this effort! After being a "free" user for a couple years, I'm now a Pro user. :) Very happy with the BazQux service as well -- good choice!

@flowergarden129, you can go to bazqux.com and import your data directly from Google there. I didn't have to use Google Takeout in order to migrate. I also only have one Reader account though, so I'm not sure how that will work.

+1 to feedly

flowergarden129 said...

I got my blogs imported, using Bazqux, and it is working perfectly. As a long time Pro user, I am so grateful to you for solving the problem of the demise of Google Reader! Thank you for your efforts.

Chris said...

I feel like a dunce with all these discussions BUT, there you are. What do I need to do to preserve the feeds I've subscribed to in Feedler on the iPad. If I upgrade will they be there or do I need to do something extra with BazQux or ? I downloaded Feedly but I'm still getting the "over capacity" error message (apparently they are waiting for fix approval). Once that IS fixed, will I have to do something to move my feeds from Feedler to Feedly? Thank you!

Think-able Sky said...

Please, please, please support Tiny Tiny RSS or at least fever so that I can use my beloved Feedler again.

I am hosting TT RSS myself so without Google Reader Feedler became literally useless. :(

Ed Steenhoek said...

I second the wish for fever api or ttrss!

Piotr T Zbiegiel said...

Another wish for Fever support here.
