Email me when discounted: 

There are a lot of RSS readers for Mac OS X out there, and Apple even added RSS capabilities directly to Safari in Tiger (10.4) - so why did I write this? Because all of the existing (Free) RSS readers are approaching the problem from the wrong side.


I treat my RSS feeds more like email than anything else, and the current crop of RSS reader is more a hybrid between iTunes and a Web browser. I wrote Feed to address this issue.

Simple and Familiar
Feed is designed to work like a mail program and includes a simple single window interface. more...

Get NetNewsWire Lite, tried it you'll have no motivation do d/l feed.
Poor GUI, no organization in feeds, slow responding

If you're going to respond negatively, please provide some constructive criticism.

What, exactly, is poor about the UI? What organization would you like to see in the feed drawer aside from user managed groups and drag and drop? Which part was slow? I've spent a lot of effort in the last version working to optimize performance, so this surprises me.

I'm always looking to make this better and I try to be responsive to user feedback - as long as it is actually suggesting an improvement.

That said, you're always entitled to a refund if you don't like it :)

Articles order (according to date/time) seems well... completely out of order when browsing MacUpdate's own feed using this application. Sure I have experimented changing the column criteria but it just shuffles them around in an arbitraty order never the correct order

Firefox's built in Live bookmark shows the correct order for instance.

Nifty idea, but why not make it a background thing that delivers directly to email... then you could use any mailreader for it?

Would only import flat OPML files, not ones with nested groups. It also crashed on me after updating very slowly (only about 15 feeds).

Yeah, pretty good format. It loads very fast, also.
Still crashes too much to use and needs some features, but this has promise.
it's already my second favorite, to "Net News Wire Lite," becuase of the drag and drop feature and if you add some features, like "mark all as read" and a single key stroke to move from unread to next unread article, it would rise to the top.
Particularly like the bookmark option.
I'll be sure to follow the progress of this app.
Thanks.

Mark All Read is in as well as Next Unread (at least within the current article display - working on the next iteration of it). Also, the 0.6.5 release is MUCH faster than the older versions.

I like the simple interface, but what I was really looking for was something that combines many feeds into one, as well as allowing the user to isolate a single feed.
Pretty much like Mail.app's inbox, where you might have several inbox folders, but clicking on the "In" icon collects all mailboxes together.
It needs a couple of extra features, too:
• provide links to the stories (don't need to link to the providing site, let the user navigate from the story)
• show date/time of stories, and allow sorting on that column.
I appreciate the time you're putting into this, as I've been hacking around with feed formats to do just this kind of thing, but unlike you, I have nothing to show for it :-)

Actually, it works EXACTLY like the folders in Mail.app. You can create folders and then selections can be made up of individual sources/folders and the display pane will group them together. You'll want to turn on the Source column (Views->Columns) for this to be truly useful.
