Inoreader Reviews

about Inoreader · · Helpful Not helpful 24 Helpful Report as spam

I was a fan, but just like with Feedly they changed their service with no notification to their users. I have around 800 feeds given that I use it to subscribe to several youtube channels, twitters, and some other websites that I like to follow. Today I woke up to being unable to add a youtube channel, and that the maximum was 150 subscriptions for a free user. This is really sad that I cannot seem to stick with one RSS reader. With the death of google reader we are at the hands of several companies who can offer great features for free, but change it up once their userbase grows (because of the good free features). I understand that you have to make money, but that is, by definition, a morally evil way of doing it.


It is fate of all free services. Even Google closed their free reader. If you're looking for a paid reader try other alternatives too:

The new plans (max 150 free subscriptions) make this worthless for most long term RSS users. Look elsewhere.

Too expensive now!

With the new offer, I don't recommand this app.

Very untrustworthy.

  • No Communication
  • Sudden overnight price changes (more money for less features)
  • Paying people to counter the people who say the above two things to reduce damage.

Stay as far away from this as you can.


The real replacement for Google Reader

Very disapointed by Feedly (a premium account to search inside your feeds?! To connect to Evernote? Come on!), I found today my real replacement for Google Reader. I hope InoReader will live long.

I spend so much time on Feedly, and finally they still doesn't open the "Search my feed" function for free.
I turn to InoReader, which having basic search function but just what i looking for, So Goodbye Feedly.
I hope InoReader would long live!

Used to be fantastic.

With new pricing model it's not as good. They've essentially made all the features that made them great subscription only features.

If you just need a brain damaged reader, this is still a good choice.


Way better than Feedly, also here's why its better and how to organize it

about Inoreader · · Helpful Not helpful Report as spam

I used feedly for about 2 years with a premium subscription

I tossed it out for a premium membership through inoreader (highest tier)

Worth every penny.

Here's why its better:

Mobile app

is actually pretty good as a standalone. Granted there is no widget as of june 2017, feedlys widgets better still

Total feeds

Feedly only gets the most recent feeds and doesn't have setting to peruse all articles on a blog. This sucks for me because I find some interesting youtube pages or sites and want to see all content, not just new ones


Inoreader is basically how youtube's UI should be. So I put all my youtube subscriptions here. There's a chrome extension. Download it. Go to the youtube homepage (click the youtube user) ? click chrome extension ? add ? there you go, you have a youtube subscription now in inoreader

this is very helpful when you want to browse all content that a youtuber has created, even quicker than that of youtube itself

Rules formatting

You can specify certain filters on what items do and don't get through in inoreader. Keyword searches, body texts, etc. Its kind of like email filter settings + RSS. I personally don't use it, but its an option. In the example video I link below, they used it to search the latest tips about SEO across all blogs. I have no use case for this but those are my 0.02

how I organize it:

Basically this is how i organize inoreader. Seperate things by youtube videos + blog sites first.

On your homepage, use following settings ( in order)

  1. HOME PAGE: Slow good content (KurzGesagt, Tom scott, Primitive Technology, smarterEveryDay, Mark Rober, CGPgrey, etc) from youtube. Lump these all together, each video made here they spent like 20+ hours so spending 5 minutes watching it is worth it

  2. Youtube only feeds (so you can see the image preview

  3. Blog only feeds by category

Example of homepage setup:

There aren't many comparisons b/w inoreader VS feedly(most used RSS reader), but this one is the one that convinced me https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AnqLPl_w33k .

Its a good starting point to figure out how to set up your inoreader

This what a true APP killer looks like.

If you consider yourself a "power user" just try it.


Great RSS reader

about Inoreader · · Helpful Not helpful Report as spam

Great tool for managing and reading RSS feeds. Great replacement for the old google RSS reader that was out there. Simple to setup and start using, but with many power user features as well.


Inoreader is simple but powerful

about Inoreader · · Helpful Not helpful Report as spam

I've tried many different rss readers, including Feedly, but Inoreader is the most straight-forward and configurable. The new Android app is excellent, and like the desktop app, it's very user-friendly.


almost perfect

about Inoreader · · Helpful Not helpful Report as spam

It is good, but it wont load images for feeds from sites like smashing magazine for some reason. That was enough for me to stop using it, I dont want to have to visit the site to read every post, back to netvibes


I suppose you are accessing InoReader via https. Try using http://www.inoreader.com . The problem with HTTPS is that browsers usually block remote content from loading if it is not server also via HTTPS.

great rss reader.
especially when adding rss feed and the search ability as free option
