Substack reader app, available on iOS devices, is a new software for the newsletter forum to enable users to see all their at once.
Android users will have to wait their turn.
The new app, touted as being ‘like your email inbox, but better,’ brings every Substack subscription in one ‘venue.’ Asides from its beautiful aesthetics, it also comes with a discovery feature that lets you find new writers.
Additionally, writers are better able to connect with their reading community with the app. Folders no longer come with promotions, and it brings multiple media formats as well.
The makers are also calling for feedback from users to make the app better. “As in everything we do at Substack, we see our work on this app as being in service of writers. This is just the first version, but it already incorporates a bunch of early feedback from newsletter authors. We’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below, or via firstname.lastname@example.org,” Substack says in its announcement.

Without pulling punches, it blamed giants like Craigslist, Facebook, and Google for ruining revenue-generation for writers.“…writers were relegated to content-production roles and playing attention games on social media,” it said.
While hoisting itself as a saviour of the writing industry, it acknowledged that there is still so much to be done. With its app, Substack assures users of additional features and functions in future.
