Every week, over 1 million posts are shared via Buffer. It’s an amount that always blows my mind. At the start of Buffer, it took 6 months to send 100,000 updates. Now there are more than 140,000 posts every single day.

With so many updates being sent through Buffer every day, it can still be difficult to keep your Buffer full, day in day out. So, to make your life easier, we’ve started to get Buffer into various news reading apps you and lots of others have asked for.

Today, I’m super excited to share the insights about 3 brand new integrations to help with your quest of a full Buffer. Let’s jump right in:

1. Trapit – discover great content in a brand new way on your iPad

One of my favorite new apps is undoubtedly Trapit. Let’s start first with what Trapit isn’t: a news reader. Instead, Trapit is completely new way to discover content about topics you are interested in. Content, that you have never even seen or heard about before about your favorite topics.

First you select a list of great topics which will turn into “Traps”. In my case for example, I’ve selected “Startups”, “Blogging”, “Meditation” and “Social Media”. Trapit will then suggest content for you based on these topics. And it’s not the usual stuff you’ve read over and over again in your Twitter and Facebook stream already.

Trapit also comes with a gorgeous Buffer integration. Any article you are browsing in Trapit, just hit the Buffer button and add it to your queue. It makes keeping a full Buffer with awesome content easier than ever before:

2. Feeddler – Awesome RSS reading for your iPad and iPhone

In case you already have a great list of top-notch content you are subscribed to via RSS – fear not, we’ve got a great way for you to stay on top of them. Whilst we talked about Reeder before, today another awesome RSS reader enters the game.

Feeddler gives you an awesome and compact way to read news on your iPad or iPhone without feature overkill. Here is how it looks like when browsing on Feeddler:

Of course, at the same time, Feeddler also comes with an awesome new Buffer integration. The integration happens via a brand new iOS sheet, that is now available to all developers. It gives you an effortless way to integrate Buffer and at the same time keep a super slick interface:


3. AppnetRhino – Buffer your App.net posts and cross post to anywhere on your social accounts

Update: AppnetRhino doesn’t appear to be around any longer 🙁

There is a brand new social network on the block. It’s called App.net and it’s awesome. Within months of its launch the platform has grown dramatically and also built out an amazing app ecosystem around app.net.

One of the best things that has come of it are awesome iPhone and iPad clients, one of them being a cool new app called Rhino. It gives you a super fast and gorgeous interface to follow your App.net posts, is completely free and comes with lots more details:

As you can already Buffer your App.net posts, Rhino now also features a brand new integration with Buffer. You can easily share all your reposts via Buffer and add them to your queue here:

Of course, any new post you write and want to cross-post to other social networks is also made super easy with the new Rhino – Buffer combination. Take a look here:


With 3 brand new integrations out, there is obviously only one next step to make happen – more awesome integrations. We’ve got a lot more great things lined up for you over the coming weeks. And of course, most importantly would be to learn from you: Which apps do you love and would like to play nicely with Buffer?

  • Hi! I LOVE Buffer. I hope you guys know that. I tell all my friends about you. I just recently signed up for the AWESOME plan.

    Question – how does the Feedler thing work? I can’t tell from this blog post. Is it something that only a developer would know how to do? Do I need to get an updated version of Feedler? I already have it on my iPhone but I have not updated to the newest iOS because I refuse to use their Maps app!

    • LeoWid

      Hi Emily, so great to see you here and amazing to have you on board as an Awesome customer too! 🙂

      Definitely, so the way Feeddler works is you just have to update to the latest version of Feeddler Pro here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/feeddler-rss-reader-pro/id365710282?mt=8

      You don’t need the latest version of iOS, just the latest version of Feeddler and the Buffer option should appear for you! 🙂

      Let me know if you find it, keen to get it all setup for you.

  • 1 million posts a week? That’s crazy! Way to go, Buffer!

    I just learned about Trapit yesterday, and now I’m certainly going to have to give it a try. I like that it’s so inherently different from just a standard news reader.

    As for apps I’d love to see play with Buffer…just about any of the social media apps on Windows 8 would be awesome. I just got a Surface and the ability to Buffer easily would be fantastic. I’m sure that’s low on your list, but I’d love to see it eventually! 🙂

    • LeoWid

      Hi Mandy, thanks so much for stopping by and really appreciate the kind words. We definitely want to also get onto Windows 8 apps, it’s probably going to be a bit further down the line though.

      So glad you already discovered @Trapit, these guys rock and I think the Buffer combo with them is one of the most useful ones!

  • I also have a lot of Buffer love. For Christmas, could you integrate with Flipboard? Thanks and keep up the good work!

    • Yeah, it sucks. I have found a fairly quick work-around until they get integrated – I save to pocket and then add to the buffer. Just an idea.

      • LeoWid

        Hi Blue Danube and Laura Thomas, MFT so great to have you stop by here.

        Definitely, Buffer in Flipboard would be amazing. We hope to make it happen soon! If you want to help us and improve the chances of us making it happen, it’d be great if you reach out to Flipboard directly (best to Tweet them: http://twitter.com/flipboard) and tell them how much you want Buffer inside Flipboard 🙂 If you mention us (@bufferapp) as well, we can jump in and say we’d like to make it happen. It’s a much stronger signal for other apps if it comes from loyal users. 🙂

  • Francois

    Is there a chance to have buffer integrated with Flipboard?

    • LeoWid

      Hi Francois, we’d love to integrate with Flipboard. What we’ve found is that it’s a much stronger signal if you could reach out to them directly on Twitter ( http://twitter.com/flipboard ) and let them know your thoughts, we can then jump in and hopefully make it happen for you! 🙂

  • Awesome!! Great improvement. Thank you!

    • LeoWid

      awesome, thanks so much for the kind shout! 🙂

  • cool yes

  • tamponer

  • Leo, I don’t use an iPhone or iPad. I’m one of those rare BlackBerry guys in the US. Are you going to create an app for BB 7 or 10? I hear they’ll pay you if it doesn’t get share. You can’t ask for more than that. I mean Buffer will definitely pick up attention in BB’s AppWorld. With 60 million users still on BB it can’t be that much of a losing proposition, can it?

  • markkoeks

    Cool list – thanks Joel! Just what I need… How does Trapit compare with Zeit?

  • Sally Prosser

    Hi Leo, You sold me on Trapit – so I set up an account (via my MacBook). Tried to share but no obvious way of linking to Buffer. So I checked the Buffer apps section – nothing there either. Am I overlooking something simple?!

    • LeoWid

      Hi Sally, ah yes, great point, so unfortunately Buffer only works for the Trapit iPad version right now, it’s definitely something we are thinking of doing for the web too though! 🙂

      • Sally Prosser

        Oh that’s a shame.

  • No iPad or Iphone here, so none of this has any worth to me. But do enjoy using buffer with my FF browser extension. http://113tidbits.com/tony-stark-and-iron-man-make-another-appearance-video/

  • I would love to see you and Readability work together! You’re my favorite way to share content, and Readability is my preferred way to read web content on my iPad/iPhone!

    • LeoWid

      Hi Owen,

      Great idea! Readability is slick and it makes perfect sense to Buffer from there. You’re not the first to mention it. We hope to make it happen soon, one thing that’d be awesome, is it’d be great if you reach out to Readability directly (best to Tweet them: http://twitter.com/readability) and tell them how much you want Buffer inside Readability 🙂 If you mention us (@bufferapp) as well, we can jump in. It’s a much stronger signal for other apps if it comes from loyal users.

  • Great ideas, but execution just isn’t working for me. Seems that in Trapit none of my Buffer account show up, says choose a service, but no icons nor services selectable in the pop up screen.

    My Feeddler looks nothing like that scrren shot you have. I can get to the screen where says show full post but no button gives me A buffer option nor a readability linked in or short url — Facebook Twitter emial short url copy options and safari open.. no buffer nada.


  • Still waiting on that TweetBot integration.

    • LeoWid

      Hi John, Great idea! Tweetbot is slick and it makes perfect sense to Buffer from there. You’re not the first to mention it. We hope to make it happen soon, but if you want to help us and improve the chances of us making it happen, it’d be great if you reach out to Tweetbot directly (best to Tweet them: http://twitter.com/tweetbot) and tell them how much you want Buffer inside Tweetbot If you mention us (@bufferapp) as well, we can jump in and say we’d like to make it happen. It’s a much stronger signal for other apps if it comes from loyal users.

  • How about integrating with @evernote @instapaper and @tweetbot ?

    • LeoWid

      Hi Jordan, awesome to hear from you and that’s a great idea! We’d love to integrate with these apps and if there is any chance you could reach out to them via Twitter and mention your interest, that’d be amazing, we could jump in immediately and it will be a much stronger sign coming from you! 🙂

    I’d so like to take advantage of the buffer feeddler integration but can’t seem to find anywhere how to get my buffer profiles to show up in feeddlerpro. I’ve searched and searched to no avail. Service menu on, but buffer doe not show up in feeddlers integrated services settings. Tried tweeting feeddler but they haven’t tweeted since 11/2. No email response yet either.. I know you’re busy but, on the off chance, hope you can help. Thanks much.

  • J.R. Picklo

    I’d love to see Instapaper and Buffer play together nicely.
