Popular RSS client Reeder was largely affected by Google’s abrupt shutdown of Google Reader earlier last year as it raced to update its various apps support for alternative RSS subscription services.
Reeder for iOS gained support for services like Feedly and Feed Wrangler pretty quickly last year, but Reeder for Mac has taken a bit longer than had originally been anticipated.
Today, Reeder 2 for Mac is available in its first public beta for free ahead of its final development.
The Mac app has replaced Google Reader syncing with modern alternatives including Feedbin, Feedly, Feed Wrangler, and Fever; as with the iOS apps, you can also use it independently for local RSS management without syncing.
Reeder 2 for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch is currently available on the App Store for $4.99.
Reeder 2 for Mac is expected to be a paid app once it leaves the beta stage; the free public beta is currently available here.
