Defaulting to the Share Sheet for Read Later Services Is Lazy ➝

Josh Ginter:

The debut of app extensions effectively eliminated those custom sharing actions to Pocket and Instapaper. Within a few software release cycles, apps like Tweetbot and Reeder opted to shelve development of their own sharing extensions for Pocket or Instapaper and left the sharing mechanism to the system-wide system. […]

In hindsight, this feels like a lazy decision and has hampered the speed and efficiency of saving content to any read-it-later queue.

The share sheet was a massive step forward for iOS, but it shouldn’t have resulted in the removal of these excellent custom sharing features built-in to applications. I’m glad that Unread brought back its custom read later sharing option in its most recent major release. I’d love to see more applications implement it as well.

Unread 2 Is the Best RSS App ➝

Josh Ginter took the arrival of his 11-inch iPad Pro as an opportunity to re-evaluate his RSS setup, both the backend syncing service and the application he uses with it. He moved to Feedly and Unread 2 for his setup. Although I prefer Feedbin, I couldn’t agree more regarding Unread 2. The application is the best RSS reader on the platform by far — it’s thoughtfully designed, offers a great set of themes, and has excellent support for all of the latest iOS technologies.
