RSS Menu is a systemwide menu that allows you to read and organize your favourite RSS or Atom feeds.

The articles are automatically updated and you will get a notification when new articles are available or when some other event occurs. In addition to visual notification, you can also enable speech notification and choose one of the many built in voices.
It is also possible to integrate iTunes (for podcasts) and Safari (for RSS bookmarks) with RSS Menu.

Features:

  • background application (doesn't get in your way and is accessible from anywhere)
  • very fast parsing engine
  • more...

What's New

Version 2.3:
  • fixed a bug that would not mark feeds as read/unread when updates where paused
  • text size preferences now work correctly
  • added a per feed setting to enable images
  • you can now opt out from Notification Center and use Growl instead
  • fixed a long standing bug where you could not rename feed groups
  • removed Start on Login as it is no longer more...

Requirements

OS X 10.6.6 or later

From longtime user: Minimal clutter, maximal utility, persistently stable, sufficiently customizable (can: arrange feeds however you want, separate by separator lines, and group feeds into folders). On MBAir OS 10.8.4, I am still using v. 1.12 freeware.

Thank you for this update, it works perfectly for me!

I'm a loooooong time user of RSS Menu and have always preferred it over anything else out there. The simplicity of quickly scanning feeds in minimal space, the fact it's always 'on top' in the menu bar, no app switching required - why would anyone want to use Google Reader or similar? What advantages do standalone readers have over RSS Menu?

But I realize, we should accept the diversity of opinions here, as long as they are offered with substance and respect. So, can the flamers here please go elsewhere?

Integrating Google Reader is absolutely desperate. Feeds from Google Reader are not synchronized. Read again and again as unread. Each time you start the application! Absolutely not reflect the real state of the channels in Google Reader!!!!!! An icon in the menu on Google Reader feeds not working!!! Unable to set "Mark all read" group-wide all Google Reader. For managing RSS feeds from Google Reader totally useless ...

I can't even rate this. Great little app. version 2.2 comes out and deletes all my RSS feeds. So I deleted the app. Pathetic but more importantly, disappointing because I really liked it.

The Blurb on MacUpdate sys it is fit for 10.6.6 or above but the comment for the Developer states it can only be used for 10.7 and above due to SandBoxing so MacUpdate should fix this in their requirements.

This page on the developer's site claims the app is compatible with 10.6: http://edotstudios.com/products. The App Store listing (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/rss-menu/id423069534?mt=12) claims 10.6.6. Where are you seeing 10.7? :-)

It is in the extended Developer's explanation. Here it is Safari Integration is only available on Mac OS X 10.7.3 due to a restriction in the Sandbox

Warren The Developer told me that he gave up trying to make this compatible with Snow Leopard. In Snow Leopard it just doesn't work and he knows it!

Thank you for updating my favourite RSS reader! I can now ditch the rest and go back to the best. I don't agree with some people who say that this app needs Reader integration to stay alive, it does not. This is a fast parsing RSS reader that sits on the menubar and does exactly what it is supposed to do. I, for one, do not need to bring the big "G" into the equation for my RSS feeds.

Thank you for making a quality piece of free software.
