As with browsers, I keep moving between RSS readers (NetNewsWire, NewsFire, Vienna) ... but keep coming back to Shrook because of four reasons: 1. It has the most subtle and effective method of showing which feeds have updated most recently; 2. Although it demands a wide screen, because of the physical size of the single window, a lot is packed in without becoming unreadable, and the method of switching between feed listings, feed details and Web pages without using tabs is slick; 3. The new "highlight item changes" feature is better than NetNewsWire's; 4. It consistently has the fewest problems with parsing malformed feeds, of which there are unfortunately too many.

I'm not at all happy with this newsreader. It dropped support for SnowLeopard It won't be missed.

I'm not so happy about this Newsreader. I find it outdated and its GUI is poor Mac-wise. I find it flat and boring. It has been the same for years and it is time for the Developer to change it. I gave it 3 Stars and that is being gracious.

details of the news item in GREY, doesn't look good, quite distracting and annoying. hard to focus on the headline/title. I guess it's because of the same font size as the headline. Please make the details in grey, in much SMALLER font. OR, without the details in grey would be much better.

This app is labeled as "a next-generation news reader" while it has an etremely dated user interface. Too funny :D

Updated from 2.87 to 2.88. Now all of my feeds are gone. More importantly, my flagged items are gone!

Direct from the Apple Store (it hasn't been updated yet). =)) First, trash the 2.88 app, then reinstall Shrook 2.87.

With Google killing Google Reader, I'm definitely interested in new RSS options, especially ones that have a syncing capability and an iOS app. Thus I was especially excited when I read this app was free and includes syncing - but I was disappointed to learn that those two things are mutually exclusive. That is, the syncing service costs $20/year. I think that price is reasonable, but I feel like the labeling is misleading.

Have used several competitors along the years (Vienna, NetNewsWire to name some), this one is the only one that doesn't get bloated, works steadily and is a pleasure to use and read through. Previously I had to change my RSS client every 6 months, with Shrook I haven't looked back for 2 years!

Shrook has become my default RSS reader. Part of that, I'll admit, is by default. Vienna isn't quite there yet and I'm not ready to pay for a reader, so that lets out a dozen other candidates. I like the way Shrook lets you cursor around the screen. I like it's four-paned interface, but I use a 21-inch monitor; it might stink on a much narrower monitor. And I like how it doesn't try to display Web pages and leaves that to a browser. I had some issues trying to set up my preferences. It crashed several times as I made changes, but once they were set up, Shrook has been solid. mt

My initial impression of Shrook after being forced to leave NetNewsWire by it's new system requirements is that it's inability to import feeds in the same hierarchy they were exported in is a substantial inconvenience. Also the four pane window seems too busy and leaves each pane too narrow, I would like to have the option of a three pane widescreen layout that NetNewsWire and Vienna offer. I won't rate it until I've had a chance to reorganize the feeds and give it a proper run through.

I forgot to mention that Shrook's feed synchronization is a fantastic feature and to my knowledge it's the only 10.4 compatible RSS/Atom reader that offers it.
