OK It works great but here is what you have to do. Use your OPMLsubsriptions from NetNewsWire or wherever you havethem and import them and you will be OK. The menu sits in the menubar and fits well.

Import it to where? This is a feed detector, not a reader. It works well for me on Safari for importing feeds to Net NewsWire.

I love this app. It works great and makes it easy for me to keep up with my favorite RSS feeds. I also love that when I click on an item, it's marked as unread in my Google Reader account - a huge plus!! A highly recommended, lightweight app for keeping up with RSS feeds :)

Works like a charm. As the Notification Centre comes with the OS anyhow, no new window - which could hinder or interfere with your work - is used. Once setup, including 'Open at Login', you can forget is; it simply works. As soon as the notification appears you can decide to give the subject a closer look... or not. Since available, the only RSS newsreader i use.
