Fiery Feeds is now almost exactly 3 years old, and a lot has changed since I released the very first version.
Paid up front is no longer a good fit for the App Store. There are lots of not so great apps, and spending even $5 without being able to test an app first is a hard sell.
On top of that a lot of Fiery Feeds’ competitors are already available for free.
After seeing other apps like Overcast adopt new business models and Apple allowing subscription pricing for all apps, I’ve decided to move Fiery Feeds to a subscription model.
This means Fiery Feeds is now a free app, and you can use it for free as long as you want.
If you want some extra features you can purchase a Premium subscription from within the free app. These premium features currently include:
- No ads
- Feed management
- Custom URL and email actions
- Fetching the full article text for truncated feeds
I do expect to add new premium features to the list over time, but the app should be useable without a premium subscription as well.
I do believe the subscriptions are very reasonable priced, especially considering how much work goes into making Fiery Feeds.
In the past 3 years I have released 39 updates for free for every Fiery Feeds user. That is more than an update every month, and subscriptions go a long way in making sure I can continue improving the app.
Thank you to everyone who has purchased Fiery Feeds so far, and another thank you to everyone who became a patron.
Here’s what’s going to change for existing users:
Nothing, really. The app you’re using is now called “Fiery Feeds Premium” on the App Store. That’s it. It is still available, and it will continue to be updated.
