An Otter RSS

The most okayest and minimalistic RSS reader on iOS and macOS

Download from App Store


An Otter RSS started off as a personal app developed by Josh Holtz for Josh Holtz.

Josh shared TestFlight Beta access of An Otter RSS to Airport after some initial interest on Twitter. The TestFlight Beta testers were passionate enough about the app that Josh decided to release the app to the App Store.

The app is now live on the App Store for all to enjoy. It is not the most sophisticated or polished app but it's what Josh wanted and what others are enjoying.

An Otter RSS is now a universal app (iOS, iPadOS, and macOS) that syncs feeds and articles over iCloud. There is nothing fancy about reading articles. Articles displayed in a native web view that allows for reader view if wanted. The app is free with an option to tip the developer.
