After using Fiery Feeds for some time, I’m doing an audit and testing other RSS apps again. Fiery Feeds seemed to be using a lot of battery. So far, Unread is winning.


  1. @canion I used to rely on Unread but like how Fiery Feeds has per-feed appearance settings.

  2. @BestofTimes @canion I’ve relied on Reeder for so long now, both on iOS & OSX. It has been mainly a case of of it isn’t broken, don’t fix it, for me – it works for me and I like its design. But I wonder if there are some apps out there that I am missing?

  3. @canion FF is awesome, specially since I’ve started using TT-RSS lately. Unread is definitely charming too. Reeder is still the best in my eyes. I wish FF would dump that strange layout on the iPad where an article popups up when you click on it. What’s your backend again?

  4. @crossingthethreshold This has got me looking at iOS RSS apps again too. I think I need:
    * Elegance
    * Full text
    * Easy access to Instapaper

  5. @nitinkhanna I use Inoreader. The problem I noticed with Fiery Feeds was that it seemed very heavy on my battery. It’s endlessly customisable though.

  6. @canion could sync times have something to do with how much battery it consumes?

  7. @BestofTimes I feel that that is what Reeder gives me.

  8. @nitinkhanna I’ve turned off background sync within the app, and have the interval set to 240 minutes anyway, so don’t think it’s that.

  9. @canion I’m so sorry you’re facing that problem.
