Do you want to read your news using RSS & Atom feeds in the most efficient, no-nonsense way, with no requirement to setup or use an existing service account? If you do, Heartfeed might be the app for you.
Using a compact grid to show all your feeds and make it easy to navigate between them, simply click on the interesting items to read the RSS-summary. You can then easily swipe to the next item, or if you want to read the news on the net, use the builtin browser which is essentially Safari, including all your content blockers.
As you read items, those items will be marked in the grid so you can quickly see what you've read and what you haven't. Also, you can mark all items as read with a single click; this you can e.g. use to mark all items read when leaving the app so that next time the feeds are updated, you can see all new items compared to your last time.
If you have multiple iOS devices, Heartfeed will synch your list of feeds between them using iCloud; no need to configure a third party service.
Also, if you are using the latest iOS devices where split view screens and/or multi-tasking are supported, Heartfeed fully supports the functionality.
There is also a darker Night mode theme, in case you want to read in darker environments.
The free version supports up to 3 feeds. You can always add any number of feeds to your fed list but at any given time, the grid is restricted to showing the top 3. To enable more feeds, you can buy unlimited feeds in the app for a one-time fee.
Among the plans for future versions is adding support for multiple groups of feeds, in case you have lots of feeds to read.
