Wire started as a sabbatical project a little over three years ago. I wanted an RSS reader that didn’t require an account and displayed articles in web views instead of the traditional method of styling article content in a “reader” view. People spend a lot of time on their websites and I think reader apps should respect that.

Wire 2.0 is a complete rewrite using SwiftUI and an improved offline caching system. I’ve been using versions of this new app for quite a while, but until iOS 15 it wasn’t possible to build some of the features I wanted with SwiftUI.

Syncing between devices also works much better than before. I love being able to read articles on my phone and iPad and having that state all kept in sync. If you’re signed into your iCloud account, it just works.

If you try it, let me know what you think. And please rate and review the app on the App Store 🙃
