Great update for the Safari View and split multi tasking alone. Also like the Instapaper support.
This app, and its Mac version are great for the most part. The iOS version still has one big flaw that the developer still has not fixed. If I don't use the app on my iPhone or iPad for a few days, it seems to stall while updating my RSS feeds. I use Fever for my RSS feeds. I have to completely remove my account from Reeder, and then add it again in order to get Reeder to start synching again. Wait a few days, and I have to do it all over again.
Might be your install of Fever. Hate it when people say it but, "it works fine for me" :) I can go weeks without opening Reeder on one of several devices and it all syncs up correctly.
I still dislike the icon, but love the app. Trying version 3 now.
