What op­tions are there for power users?

Per­son­al­i­sa­tion is one of the key fea­tures of RSS read­ers: hav­ing a con­sis­tent de­sign and con­sis­tent nav­i­ga­tion across mul­ti­ple sources means we can bet­ter con­cen­trate on the tai­lored con­tent. Daily falls at the first fence here, be­cause while its styling is con­sis­tent you can’t change any of it. Break­ing doesn’t make the cut either be­cause it’s merely a No­ti­fi­ca­tion Area wid­get, and Pulp lets you make the text big­ger and that’s about it.

That leaves Leaf, NetNewsWire and Read­Kit. All three of­fer ex­cel­lent for­mat­ting fea­tures that en­able you to view ar­ti­cles ex­actly how you like them, but NetNewsWire doesn’t of­fer themes: Leaf has a light and a dark mode, while Read­Kit has four dif­fer­ent coloured themes plus Read­abil­ity in­te­gra­tion to im­prove feeds’ for­mat­ting and a Fo­cus Mode that hides the side­bars so you can con­cen­trate. Read­Kit also has some­thing su­perb: Smart Fold­ers. They work just like they do in Mail, en­abling you to fil­ter your feeds for spe­cific words or phrases, sources, time­frames or tags.

Read­Kit of­fers lots of for­mat­ting op­tions, Read­abil­ity mode and a fo­cus mode too.
