Reeder 4 for macOS Gets a Public Beta

Reeder is one of the most synonymous RSS apps on iOS. It has been around for a long time and is very likely in the first set of apps that most people install on their devices alongside the likes of 1Password and Twitterrific or Tweetbot. Reeder 3, the current stable version of the app, went Free on iOS and Mac last year. Today, Silvio has announced and released a public beta of Reeder 4 — the major rewrite of the app. Some of the new features introduced in the app are:

  • Read Later service with iCloud syncing.
  • Article list with preview images.
  • More layout options.
  • Improved article viewer.
  • Pull-to-Refresh

According to the developer, the iOS version of Reeder 4 is almost ready, so I’m hoping Reeder 4 will be out later this year. I can’t wait to see how it evolves during the beta.



The Unarchiver 4.1 Adds Support for Dark Mode on macOS Mojave

The Unarchiver — easily the best unzipping tool for macOS — has been updated to Version 4.1 today that brings along support for the Dark Mode in macOS Mojave. The Unarchiver offers support for one of the widest collection of archives. The app was acquired by MacPaw, Inc last year, who’ve given it a beautiful icon, a UI facelift, and a bunch of new features since the acquisition.

Today’s update also brings along faster extraction capabilities, direct extraction support for warc.gz archives, some fixes for 7-zip archives, and a whole lot of other fixes.

Google Releases Colorful New Themes for Chrome

Google has apparently released a dozen new themes for Google Chrome, available via the Chrome Store. Unlike many of the third-party themes for Chrome, these come directly from the maker. Which makes me wonder why most of the themes in this collection are simple shades after shades of color, while some are simply ridiculous, like this High Contrast Colorful one here. I’m still glad Google chose to release them because they’ve brought me my favorite one from this lot, which is this stunning “Just Black” theme here.

Serif’s Affinity Publisher Available Now in Free Public Beta

Serif has just announced that Affinity Publisher, the company’s new Desktop Publishing app, is now available in a Free public beta. The company had revealed that it was working on a third app, after Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo, via a tweet back in July.

You can download the free beta of Affinity Publisher for both Mac and Windows systems, with the fairly straightforward system requirements available here. The company does note that this is a beta, so you should not use it for any important production work at this time.

It’s great to see Serif working on these incredible alternatives for Adobe’s apps like Illustrator, Photoshop, and now InDesign. I’ve downloaded the beta on my Mac and will be sharing my thoughts here very soon.
