Last updated: July 19, 2021

Here are the best RSS readers:

NetNewsWire, "a free and open source RSS reader for Mac, iPhone, and iPad."

Vienna, an open source native MacOS RSS/Atom reader.

Other options

Fraidycat, a free and open-source reader that can follow RSS, Twitter accounts, even a public TiddlyWiki.

Feedbin, a $5/month service that follows RSS, Twitter, and email newsletters in a nicely-designed UI.

Mailbrew can aggregate email newsletters as well as Twitter feeds.

Kill the Newsletter promises to turn email newsletters into Atom feeds, to be read in an RSS reader.

• This RSS explainer by ncase is a friendly introduction and points to several other readers (Inoreader, Feedly, and The Old Reader).

• Many more alternatives, including some Big Tech-funded tools we don't recommend, on Wikipedia's list of feed aggregators.
