DeliveryBoy is a super lightweight RSS reader that thrives in your menubar. It's easy to use and well-designed.
Trying to download this for months..
Where do I get the file?
Love the app. It really simplifies the RSS reader experience. Only thing I would like to see an import option so i could import my other feeds as an "OPML" file instead of adding each one individually. ROCK IT MY FRIEND!
one more thing... it would be nice to see which articles have been read, and those that have not. Not sure if its possible, but I will be here to find out. L8a.

I'm probably not going to do that because I don't like rss readers which do that. :-)
But of course somebody else could implement that since, I'm releasing the source code tonight or tomorrow
Why exactly would you like DeliveryBoy to output in an XML based language meant for parsing by a computer?
(did you mean to output in an outline view?)
Bah.... Didn't read carefully :) Yeah it makes sense to have an import option. I'll look into it
This app is the best I've ever seen!
First, the icon in the menu bar is very tiny.
Second, the app has it's own viewer, so you don't have to switch constanly between the reader and your browser.
Third, you don't have to mark which articles you have read. I hate it to use features like 'Mark All Read' etc. Just Display the titles of the articles, I can remember myself which ones I've already read :)
Fourth, there is no nagging sound that tells you when new articles arrive.
Fifth, the app doen't forget which feeds you've added, like RSS menu tends to do, which can be very annoying. ;)
So it's perfect in its simplicity. It makes RSS very tiny and handy, like it should be: present and always at hand, but never in the way. ;)
Some minor things that maybe should be 'fixed'. When adding a URL, the app doesn't fill in the name of the site.
Maybe adding icons for the sites (little bit of eyecandy ;) )
But these are minor features
Keep up the good work!
You know, I'd really like to like this app, but it still has some problems. It's a near clone of RSS Menu with a smaller Menu Bar Icon and some differences in entering RSS feeds. It works well, and I like it's way of letting you view the articles in a viewer or your browser with ease. Sadly, when it tries to automatically update it pops up a dialog box telling me that I'm not connected to the internet, which I am. When I manually update it works fine. Close, but it needs just a bit more work for me to switch to it. Good start, though.
Thanks, but this is not a clone of any app :-) I made most of it back in august 2004. RSS Menu was released in 2005.
p.s. Doesn't anyone read the readme where I specifically say that it's best to email me bug reports since that way it's easy for me to look at them at a later time
p.s.2. Regarding the "not connected" issue . I'll be modifying the way I download the feeds to make it more stable and to support proxies
