The social aspect of Reeder was considered and Silvio added more and more sharing services to the app in the last weeks. You can bookmark with del.ici.ous, save for later with Instapaper and ReadItLater and the option to mail as a link or the full thing. I must confess that I have posted to Posterous thorugh the email article feature and it was neat and kept all the formatting.
Aesthetically is very polished. One of the nicest touches is the "Sync bar" that actually blends with the UI sitting where the operator and battery icon are. The icon is simple and predictable but neat. I guess Silvio didn't want to take risks there but it gives an idea of RSS feed, folder, and favourites for the star. I have to admit that I was sold with the texturing of the menubars, it is not simple back, and the backgrounds, texts, links, and whole creamy look I find it superb.
If you want to get the best of Reeder, go to the settings section and tune it to your likes. I realised that the app was snappier if I only sync unread items, since I have ridiculous loads (600-1000) of them to read. If you need the unread count icon badge, you'll find it there. I also have chosen to never keep read items with a small font size for better results.
From my point of view, Reeder has to fight its right to be up there with Mobile RSS
, but it is definitely a great app that would be perfect with Twitter and Facebook integration.
