I've been using Reeder on both my iPhone and MacBook Pro to peruse blog updates, along with Google Reader when I'm at my computer.
After Google Reader died on July 1, I've had to turn completely to Reeder and The Old Reader, a web-based Google Reader look-alike. I like The Old Reader, but prior to July I found that Reeder updated feeds automatically more often than The Old Reader.
So I'd decided to make Reeder my main replacement for Google Reader.
Only problem was, and it took me a few days to notice this, I wasn't getting any blog post/RSS updates. I was stuck in time on July 1.
Call me clueless (always a reasonable thing to call me), but this morning I emailed Reeder support, plaintively asking why the feeds weren't refreshing. Then I told them "sorry, no need to respond."
Should have done my Googling first. Here's what got me back to Reeder functionality.
(1) The 3.2 Reeder iPhone update includes replacements for its previous Google Reader connection, Feedly being free. I didn't know that I needed to sign up for Feedly. Once I did, via the Reeder "settings" area, I was back in business.
However, I didn't see a way to automatically transfer over my Google Reader feeds. So I opened up Reeder on my Mac, clicked on "manage subscriptions," and then typed in the feed URL's I wanted Feedly to add to my account.
(2) Reeder for the Mac, I learned, isn't functional at the moment. It has been pulled from the App Store until a new version is ready. This explains why I couldn't get it to update. For once, not because of my cluelessness.
Hope this helps others who are having trouble getting Reeder to be their Google Reader replacement.
I read Ezra Klein's reasons why he is going to bookmarks rather than replacing Google Reader. They make sense for him, but not for me. I like my blog post consolidator-at-a-glance, which likely will continue to be Reeder.
