For all of you who have been burnt by this Developer, try RSS Menu. If is not quite as good, but it works in Tiger and is developing.

BEWARE! This developer will sell his software with NO support and no response. There are no updates for Tiger and again no response. Registration scheme is useless and Developer has not responded when asked how to reinstate registration with my new 2.7 tower. Again, Developer is nothing short of a thief. I am looking into how to file an out-of-state report with New York authorities for fraud regarding this Developer.

News You Can Lose is more like. Zero support. No Tiger compatibility.

Since the Developer is no longer responding and I need an excellent RSS reader, what are people who used and owned NYCU switching to? Thanks. Too bad, I didn't wait a little longer or I could have applied the money I wasted on NYCU to my next RSS reader choice.

Not one word from the Developer about anything. No e-mail replies. Period. Site still lists NYCU, but why bother when the Developer is no longer responsive--they took my money and ran. Since I paid for my copy I feel totally screwed by this Developer. Never again and I hope someone does something similar to NYCU so I can move on. Does NOT work in Tiger.

No response from the Developer either, and I too feel this might be dead. Too bad as it is the easiest or rather was the easiest method of reviewing your RSS feeds. Even Tiger does not come close to NYCU.

It stopped working in Tiger. It tries, but just can't make it happen. I do hope the author makes a Tiger version.

Agreed. Stopped working under 10.4. Too bad!

Broken. It crashes constantly. An e-mail to their support line asking if it is still being developed got no response. I think this product might be dead.

It was a nice idea. The interface for adding feeds wasn't well thought out but the menubar functionality worked well when it worked.

Don't bother.

This is the only menubar RSS reader that I know of, and after trying it, I quickly got addicted to having the news up there when I wanted it. I have now gotten into the habit of using NewsFire for blogs and other feeds that I only read once a day or so, and keeping NYCU in the menubar for feeds like Reuters that are more time-sensitive. NYCU is very unobtrusive and in my opinion that is its best feature.

Having said that, yes it is a little buggy and could be slicker. And adding new feeds is not intuitive to me. My biggest wish is to have some choices for the menubar icon. The aqua icon stands out too much for me, and I would like a flat, black icon that blends in more.

I waited to register thinking a better menubar RSS reader would come along, but it hasn't yet. So I am happy to support this developer for his efforts and hope that NYCU is developed from a good app into a great one.

Well...I broke down and registered NYCU. I was intending upon waiting until my new G5 liquid-cooled arrived, but got tired of waiting. It freaks me out on how transparent this application is with the shareware boxes gone--it's so much quicker! It is the nicest of the RSS readers and I am glad that I did register.
