Swipe left for controls

The content aware controls can be accessed with a swipe to the left, giving you tools that work best depending on what you're looking at. This is what you see when you access the tools from a list of stories.

Switch to day theme

Unread comes with both Day and Night themes, but the developers say you'll have to seek out the rest of the themes by using the app.

Full page story view

When you're reading an individual story, the interface stays out of your way. You have the option to add a thumbnail to the top of the story in the settings if you want a bit more color.

You'll need an account first

If you're new to RSS, it's important to note that the app pulls all of its information from other popular RSS readers including Feedly, Feedbin, and FeedWrangler. If you don't have an account with one of these services, you'll need to get one or Unread is unusable.
