Being minimal is not about having the fewest number of features

(it’s about focusing on the right ones)

Minimal Reader is designed around the content

It also has everything you need

Favorites and Read Later

Never lose another article. You can quickly "star" your favorites and "queue" articles you want to read later.

Hidden Counts

Your reader should not cause you stress. Unread counts are hidden by default to avoid “inbox overload”. Yes, you can turn them back on ;)

Intuitive Gestures

You can mark articles as read by swiping right or bookmark them by swiping left. Expanded articles can be collapsed by pinching or double tapping their content.


Mark your favorite entries with custom tags to find them later.


You can quickly filter stories by folder, subscription, read/unread, starred, etc.


Your subscriptions list can be easily imported or exported (OPML).

Keyboard Shortcuts

You can quickly navigate your stories without touching your mouse.


You can share an article to your Email, Instapaper, Pocket, Pinboard, and more.

Private & Secure

Your reading behaviors are private and will never be shared. Your connection and password is securely encrypted.

Ad Free

Minimal Reader is supported by your subscription. You will never see advertisements in the reader.

Extract Content

You can extract the full-text of an article when it is truncated or missing.

Real-time Updates

You can be notified of new entries as they arrive, without having to refresh. Subscriptions are updated every 30 minutes or within 1 minute if the subscription supports real-time PuSH.
