Love RSS feeds? So do we!!
RSS feeds are a great way to follow updates on your favorite website. However, some sites set up their feeds to only show a portion of each entry, you know, to get you to click through to their actual website. We find that really annoying, and we're sure you do too.
Which is why, unlike other RSS feed readers, that either push you into a browser (in-app or otherwise), or depend on third party text parsing services and require you to be online to fetch the full text of one article at a time (which makes it no different from having to click/tap through to a website), in lire, you get your favorite RSS feeds as they should've been. You don't need to click through to any website (though, you do still have the option to, if you really wanted). It takes your favorite partial feeds, does its magic, and converts them in to full feeds, so you don't have to click/tap on those annoying 'Read more' or 'Continue reading' links.
Once they're cached, you don't even need to be connected to read your full-text feeds.

storage use is way off again. Iphone says 82GB used instead of a few hundred megs. expoorting/importing opml works fine for a rest reset, but theres no saved post export/ import. five stars if you add that

Lire is great. I have tried and paid for many RSS readers and was thrilled to find Lire. Pre-caching is amazing. I love that the app does not collect any user data on you too. I was an original user of Byline and kept coming back to that despite lack of development because the interface felt right. …
