Thanks OP. Still using Reeder 3 and really like it. Didn’t see the point paying $7 to upgrade but I’ll take FREE any day.

You can set up feeds for anything, like this forum, for example, to send you push notifications or just have a list of articles. I have it so I can see what new things come up here in Hot Deals, as well as some others.

Some sites have RSS feeds. It’s a way for them to list all the latest articles they’ve published on a topic in one place, updated live. Other apps (like reeder) can use this info.

For example if I want to follow the Canucks and Oilers only, I can put the .RSS feed addresses from CBC.ca/Canucks and cbc.ca/oilers into Reeder. Now Reeder will show me the latest articles from CBC’s Canucks and Oilers coverage in one place.

Personally I use an RSS reader to get notifications of all the podcasts I like. There are 50, so I get a notification every time one of them publishes a new episode, and can choose to go download it.

Thanks OP.

I probably won’t switch from Feedly ( great UI and the free plan is more than enough).

Who else misses google reader?

I can’t imagine reading this RFD hot deals forum without my RSS reader. Once you get used to it you won’t go back

I use Feedly then have it linked to Reeder. Love the Reeder UI more.
But ya Google Reader was the best.

Sounds good. Can you be more explicit about how to set it up to 'hot deals" on rfd? A true Noob here.

I had just caved and paid for the iOS version a few weeks ago. But Mac version for free is a huge win, thanks!

Reeder 4 iOS is much easier for reading webcomics. Double tap to zoom on images works.

I dont use Reeder as Im on Android, but I guess the steps would be similar for any RSS feed reader. There will probably be an option to search for feeds when you set up. Just search for redflagdeals and you'll see different option, one of them being Hot Deals. If you're interested in other forums you can add those too. All the added feeds' posts, such as this thread, will show up on your main screen which you can now flag read or starred. It makes it easier for you to keep track of threads you are interested in and swipe away the ones you aren't.

If you can't find the feed by searching, you can add them manually. The diagonal WiFi looking symbol at the bottom of the forum (third in the list of twitter, facebook, feed, email?, and phone?). Copy the url that it leads to paste it in the manual add input.

Yup, used to use Reeder and Google Reader back in the day. Now that I’m with Feedly I probably wouldn’t switch either.

1) Install the Reeder app 2) come back to this forum 3) Scroll to the bottom 4) click on the RSS button that looks like a WiFi symbol 5) confirm to add feed to reeder
