Reeder for iPhone hit the App Store in September of 2009. Although it initially lacked some key features, it quickly became popular and is now one of the best RSS readers for the iPhone. Since the iPad’s release, many Reeder users have been waiting with bated breath for an iPad version. They’re finally in luck; the developer submitted Reeder for iPad last week, and it should be available soon.
For those not familiar with Reeder, it’s an RSS reader that syncs with your Google Reader account. Since it’s obviously not the first app of its kind on the iPad—NetNewsWire is the big-name competition—I’m going to talk a little bit first about what separates Reeder from all the apps already in the App Store.
