The 3 best RSS feeds (2021): Feedly, Inoreader and Tips

Automation requires a pro account. Pro accounts also benefit from other cool features, such as the ability to integrate IFTTT and Zapier, an offline mode for mobile applications. It also includes my favorite: keeping your YouTube account in sync with your RSS reading. You can watch YouTube videos in Inoreader, and the next time you log into YouTube, you won’t have a ton of unwatched videos.

Inoreader offers a free account (with ads), which is good for testing the service to see if it meets your needs. If so, the Pro account costs $ 7 per month (it’s cheaper if you buy a year in advance), which brings more advanced features and support for more streams.

Great for beginners

Feedly is probably the most popular RSS reader on the web, and for good reason. It’s well designed, easy to use, and has great search options, so it’s easy to add all your favorite sites. One thing is missing that makes Inoreader slightly better in my opinion – YouTube sync – but otherwise Feedly is a great choice.

It even has a few features that Inoreader doesn’t, like Evernote integration (you can save articles in Evernote) and a notes feature for jotting down your own thoughts on the stories. Feedly also touts Leo, the company’s AI search assistant, who can help you filter your feeds and bring up the content you really want. In my testing I found it to work quite well, but a lot of what I like about RSS is that there is no AI – I don’t want to automated filtering. Depending on how you use RSS, however, this could be a useful feature.

Like the others here, Feedly offers iOS and Android apps as well as a web interface. Feedly is free for up to 100 feeds. A Pro subscription costs $ 8 per month (it’s cheaper if you pay for a year) and allows for more features like notes, recording in Evernote, and ad-free playback. The Pro + account gives you AI features and more for $ 12 per month.

Ideal for DIY enthusiasts

Newsblur is a refreshingly simple old-fashioned RSS reader. You won’t find any AI or YouTube sync here, it’s for reading RSS feeds and getting on with your life. It can subscribe to all kinds of content (including newsletters), read full stories (even from RSS feeds that don’t offer them), integrate with IFTTT, and even follow story changes if a editor updates an article.
