PulpFiction Lite

1.2.2
01 September 2005

RSS/Atom feed reader.

Overview

PulpFiction is a RSS/Atom feed reader. Featuring a familiar Mail-like interface, PulpFiction will fetch, organize, and display news and articles from thousands of weblogs and websites.

Leveraging Mail's familiar interface and ease of use, PulpFiction throws some serious muscle behind your news reading. Powerful, flexible filters move, mark, and process articles. Flags, sounds, and dock icons alert you to new or important posts. AppleScript support allows you to extend PulpFiction to work with your entire digital hub: Mail, Safari, the Finder, and more.

PulpFiction Lite is available at no-cost with a reduced feature set. PulpFiction Lite is the perfect way to familiarize yourself with the world of syndicated content feeds, and is fully upgradable to PulpFiction. A full comparison of features can be seen here.

What's new in PulpFiction Lite

  • fixed incorrect folder counts
  • fixed the negative flagged counts
  • set the article list to be scrolled to the top of deleted items when deleting more then one article
  • set the article list to scroll to the center when using the space bar to navigate between articles
  • added "Default" to article labels, "None" now doesn't show a label if the subscription has one. Default sets the label to show the subscription label if pref to do so is set.
  • fixed parsing bug with < signs in article titles.
  • set the name of a smart folder to be the subscription's name when a single sub is dragged to the folder view
  • fixed the issue where articles didn't appear in a feed in the feed view if their subscription was deleted and then added back in
  • updated to the latest version of growl
  • growl will now prompt the user to install or upgrade on first use
  • added smart folder options for matching by folder, unread, or flagged

Good looking, but fails to properly import OPML documents, which suck a LOT. Looking toward for a fix...

Good program, nice interface, cheap (free!). Allows for nice saving/organization of feeds. Only problem: pretty unstable. Sometimes crashes when downloading new feeds.

Version 1.1.0 is much faster. I don't use many of the extra options, so I don't care much for those. NewsFire has a hard time remembering what news i've already read, and it has no "preview" pane which is annoying. It's also less stable. Oddly enough, a marriage of NewsFire and PulpFiction would be ideal.

seeing as how the developers of both are complete twits, maybe it'll happen!

Using the Mail metaphor for RSS feeds is something I find to be miss-placed. A more hierarchal viewer is something that makes more sense to me, let alone being more organized. I'll stick with NewsFire, at least until it exists beta and they start charging for it. Then maybe I'll use one of these other RSS aggregators.

Newest version seems to fix a bunch of annoying little bugs, seems much quicker. Can't beat the price. I use it daily.

Seems a nice RSS reader. But I could not use it so far, sice it quits itself when I try to import an OPML file or simply add a new subscription. :\

That was fixed in a quick update to the DMG a few minutes later. Grab the 1.0.1 DMG again and you'll have no problems there.

I had to delete all related stuff (preferences, etc.) and import the OPML file again, then it worked. The only thing I miss is way to group or agregate the news, so I could move from a source to another quicker. Maybe a filter option, as it looks like an email client. =)

For filters, we offer PulpFiction (the non-Lite version). :-)

I recommend at least giving this a try, it's not perfect, but it works well for me, I use it daily. Oh, and it doesn't appear to be leaking any (or at least not noticeably anyway) memory on my system.

Unimpressive. I didn't care for the interface, which copies Apple Mail much too closely. I don't read RSS like I read email. Also leaks memory like a sieve. I'm sticking with NetNewsWire Lite. The latest beta even does Atom feeds.

Not worth the hype. I'm severely underwhelmed by this. Probably has a limited lifespan anyway, since RSS seems like a no-brainer feature for Safari 2.0.
