NetNewsWire 5.0 for iOS Available Now

You can go get it on the App Store! It runs on iPhones and iPads and requires iOS 13.

It’s free and open source, and it includes support for Feedbin and Feedly syncing.

Just as the Mac version looks like a Mac app, this is very much an iOS app. It supports Dark Mode, context menus, multiple windows, Siri Shortcuts, and other iOS features.

Other features include searching, starred items, Today and All Unread smart feeds, Reader view, multiple accounts, hiding read articles and feeds, background refreshing, and more.

The app is designed to be stable and fast. (But note that an initial sync might take a while because there’s a lot of data to download.)

A few tips:

  • The iPad version has extensive support for keyboard shortcuts: it’s very much like the Mac app
  • When reading an article, you can swipe left to go the next article
  • To go to the next unread article, tap the button in the middle of the bottom toolbar

Though this is a 5.0 release, it really is a brand-new app, and this is just the beginning. Our amazing team is already hard at work on 5.0.1 and on updates to the Mac app.
