you'd rather see, like cats.

How it works

Step 1

1. Install

Then start adding lists of things you don't want to see, like baseball.

2. Browse

Any time a keyword is matched, rather goes to work. Ahem, "Sox."

Step 3

3. Rejoice

Now the sports in your feed will become cats. Or the cats in your feed will become sports. You get the idea.


Customized Lists

Dynamic list management

Sure, babies are annoying on Facebook, but not so much on Twitter. Rather lets you enable certain lists just on Facebook or just on Twitter. Or both. We think that's pretty damned special.

Replacement content

Rather lets you have multiple sources of replacement content. So if you get bored with cats, you can see cats and bacon and Kate Upton and Ryan Gosling––whatever floats your boat. You can also plug in any RSS feed and we'll show you that, too.

Replace or Mute

Admittedly, even replacing content can get a bit cumbersome. So we let you quickly opt between replacing stuff or just muting it all. You can also quickly turn rather on and off for either Facebook and Twitter.
