When Google announced that it was killing off Google Reader , it essentially issued a death notice to apps that relied on its RSS backend . In the absence of a contingency plan, top RSS app Reeder quickly updated its iPhone app to include support for third party services, but left its iPad users in the cold. Reeder for iPad died alongside Google Reader on July 1st, leaving users to seek alternative services in order to stay on top of their feeds. Today, several months later, Reeder is getting back on the horse with version 2.0 — an app that works on both iPhone and iPad.
