A pro account is required for automation. Pro accounts get some more nice features, such as the ability to integrate with IFTTT and Zapier, an offline mode for mobile apps. This includes my personal preferences: Keeping your YouTube account compatible with your RSS reading. You can watch YouTube videos in Inoreader, and the next time you log in to YouTube, you won’t have a ton of unseen videos.
Inoreader offers a free (including advertising) account, which is good for checking the service to see if it meets your needs. If it is, the Pro account is $ 7 per month (cheaper if you bought it a year ago), which comes with more advanced features and support for more feeds.
Best for beginners
Feedly is probably the most popular RSS reader on the web, and for good reason. It provides well-designed, easy-to-use and great search options to make it easy to add all your favorite sites. It lacks one thing that makes Inoridar a bit better in my view – YouTube syncing – but otherwise Fidley is a great choice.
Eureader doesn’t even have some features, such as Evernote integration (you can save articles on Evernote) and a note feature to write your own thoughts on stories. Fidley also points to the company’s AI Search Assistant Leo, which can help you filter your feeds and publish the content you want. In my tests, I found that it worked well enough, but a big part of what I like about RSS is that it doesn’t have AI – I don’t I want Automatic filtering. Depending on how you use RSS, though, it can be a useful feature.
Like the others here, Fidley offers iOS and Android apps with a web interface. Feedly up to 100 feeds free. A Pro subscription costs $ 8 per month (cheaper if you pay for one year) and enables more features like notes, save Evernote and read ad-free. Pro + account gives you AI-features and more $ 12 per month.
Best for DIYers
NewsBlue is a fresh simple old school RSS reader. You won’t find AI or YouTube sync here – it’s for reading RSS feeds and continuing your life. It can subscribe to all kinds of content (including newsletters), read full stories (even from RSS feeds that don’t offer them), integrate with IFTTT, and even track story changes when a publisher updates an article.
