Description of App
Love RSS feeds? So do we!!
RSS feeds are a great way to follow updates on your favorite website. However, some sites set up their feeds to only show a portion of each entry, you know, to get you to click through to their actual website. We find that really annoying, and we're sure you do too.
Which is why, unlike other RSS feed readers, that either push you into a browser (in-app or otherwise), or depend on third party text parsing services and require you to be online to fetch the full text of one article at a time (which makes it no different from having to click/tap through to a website), in lire, you get your favorite RSS feeds as they should've been. You don't need to click through to any website (though, you do still have the option to, if you really wanted). It takes your favorite partial feeds, does it's magic, and converts them in to full feeds, so you don't have to click/tap on those annoying 'Read more' or 'Continue reading' links.
Once they're cached, you don't even need to be connected to read your full-text feeds.
Use as a standalone feed reader,
sync with any of the several services: Feedly, Feedbin, FeedHQ, The Old Reader, Inoreader, BazQux Reader, Newsblur, Feed Wrangler.
question regarding push notifications
Hi all, wondering if someone knows the answer to this,
I have one rss feed added to lira, what I want is to get notifications whenever the feed is updated like you get push notifications with emails and other apps.
I have the background app refresh enable in lire for the feed and background app refresh on in settings.
However despite this lire never seems to refresh unless I actually launch the app.
any ideas? I am running this on a 6s plus running ios 9.1.
I also have it set to enable notifications for lira under notification settings.
So far, I'm liking this app better than BWRSS and Newsify.
Thank you for recommending this to me on another topic.
I also tried newsify and I think one other one and I have to say I like this one the best. Thank you very much
Hope you found al the feeds to the sites you wanted.
Yes I did!
Yes I did!
I'm thinking about purchasing this app. Does it still work with iOS 10? It hasn't been updated in over a year.
Yes, it still works just fine under iOS 10. As the matter of fact the developer is currently working on a new major release. So hope to see this soon.
Hello, yes Lire is still
Hello, yes Lire is still working and don't worry, 3.0 is almost ready.
Mine is not wirking
I use Lire everyday, but as from last week, whenever I launch Lire, I'm always presented with an error message: no API found. As a result of this, I've switched to 'Newsify'.
How do I view my list of articles grouped by feed? I imported an OPML file with my feeds from Vienna on my Mac. However, I just get this extremely long list of articles that is called all articles. I'd rather have them grouped by the feed name and then drill down to view the individual entries per feed. How do I do this? While I'm talking about feeds, it seems like the list of all articles is sorted from oldest to newest even though I checked the option in the settings to show newest first. What am I missing. Aside from these issues, I love this app. However, if I can't figure it out, this will be pretty much useless with all these entries scattered around.
Try to look for subscriptions
Try to look for subscriptions in the app main screen .. there you go and do have fun!
Figured it out
I figured out the feed issue. There is an item in the main screen called subscriptions. I passed it because I thought it was a heading of text. NOw I feel like an idiot. heh!
V3.0 is out
As expected, this major update takes accessibility quite seriously as well as offering a wide range of enhancements everywhere.
What's New in Version 3.0
Background refresh not working for me with lire 3
Is anybody else encountering problems with lire 3 not automatically refreshing feeds in the background?
I have tried everything that I can think of - toggling all of the relevant app and iOS settings; hard restarting my phone; killing the app in the App Switcher; deleting and reinstalling the app - but still have to manually refresh feeds nearly every time that I go to the app.
There is so much that I like about this app, but this problem is driving me somewhat crazy … and possibly back to Feeddler.
Hi, I have a question about
Hi, I have a question about refreshing feeds, basically I want when lire refreshes a feed in the background automatically to be notified when this happens, I understand that this is possible.
However what I would like to know is if I disable caching of text and images does this effectively mean that I won't get notifications when the background app refresh fetches new content? basically I have no interest in storing articles for any length of time its mostly to know when new things are posted to the feed that is important, I also always have an internet connection available so offline reading isn't important to me.
Of course if I need text caching to be on for notifications of background app refresh to work then I will turn it back on.
also, I assume that starring an article means that it won't be purged after a day if I have read it which is what I now have set so that anything I read is automatically deleted after a day.
Can Lire Access Password-protected Feeds?
I read lots of Dreamwidth blogs which require me to login before displaying the RSS feed. Has anyone done this successfully?
With this new update, when I try adding subscriptions it gets me to either Google or being. How do I add subscription now? Thank you
Can't subscribe to Applevis
Why I can't subscribe to applevis using Lire. It does not give an article automatically
Using version 3.0.18 of the app, can someone please tell me the correct way to search for feeds?
At the moment, when I do any kind of search be it URL or specific words, all I get is the Google and Bing results, nothing else.
I'm obviously doing something wrong, but can't for the life of me work out what it is! Any help gratefully received.

Lire Full Text RSS
Hi, I can't really say anything about Feedler Pro as I never used it, but I myself do use Lire and love it.
Thanks for the feedback.
So far so good. I’ve just purchased this app and I’m really impressed with it.

Replying to #66
Hi! I bought the app. today hoping to get notifications as well. It was the reason why I bought the app. I am in the same situation as you. Did you ever get them working? If so, what did you or anybody reading this do? I realize this post is a couple years old but it's worth a shot. Maybe I will get a answer from somebody.
Is the new app worth the cost?
I previously bought lire, & loved it!
It doesn’t make sense to me, why the new version, would be a separate app. However, I am seriously thinking of purchasing it.
For those who have already bought the new version, what do you think of it? How does it compare to the previous version?
Is it worth the cost?
Trouble downloading full text after updating to iOs 14.5
After updating my iPhone 7 to iOs 14.5 I can not download full text for any articles. Every attempt ends with a timeout error and a message saying unable to download full text.
This worked fine before updating to iOs 14.5 and has not worked afterwards, including several hard closes of Lire and rebooting my iPhone.
Is anyone else able to download full text with iOs 14.5 and Lire?
Fixed for iOs 14.5
The developer responded to my issue and quickly fixed the problem. Lire is now able to download full text on iOs 14.5
