Newsfire works good with El Capitan. Version2.0 works no longer after the upgrade to macOS Sierra. I hope there comes soon a new version for Sierra (macOS).

Anyone know the difference between the (use to be paid and then became Free) v1 and the (Paid) v2? Nothing here. Nothing at the App Store and noting on the Web site? Why such a secret? What did it get to justify the price and the v2 listing? Judging by the comments on the App Store nothing has changed: "NewsFire cannot synchronize with a Google Reader account. NewsFire cannot import a Google Reader export file without manually changing extension from .xml to .opml. NewsFire cannot view web links within the reader. NewsFire is more polished than Google Reader's web interface, but otherwise is inferior. NewsFire's web site and Mac App Store page lack sufficient information to make an informed purchase. I just wasted $5 on a whim." Why won't the developer tell us what has changed?

Meh, color me underwhelmed. It doesn't import feeds into the hierarchal structure they were exported in, and while the UI is different from all the rest I find the three pane widescreen layout more useful for me.

Just a quick note on the "description" of the app -- the phrase is "dumbed down" not "dubbed down". Just FYI. I've not had any trouble w/NewFire over the years, I continue to enjoy it and don't care one way or the other if the Newsfire blog is deletable or not -- seems a small "price" to pay for a free app to me --

To Remove The Developer's Blog From Your Feeds: 1. File-->Add Group--> name the group "Lame". 2. Drag the unwanted blog into group "Lame". 3. Right click "Lame", select Remove. 4. Remove Group and Feeds. Done deal. As far as the app goes, it's decent. Other than the obnoxious trick of forcing people to view and not delete his blog, it's easy to use and fairly nice looking. I actually bought this app before it went free, but it's not my RSS reader of choice; I use it because the others I've tested seem buggier. NewsFire wins by default.

This is a beautiful and well designed piece of software. Perhaps the only feature lacking is some kind of sync system - computer-computer-iphone. But this is a small quibble for a free product. I've no idea what the reviewers are talking about below - it is easy to delete the developer's blog RSS. There is some kind of vendetta against this developer, so take the negative reviews with a grain of salt. In any case it's free, so try it and find out.

Before you consider installing ANY software concocted by David Watanabe on your computer, please do a decent Google search of "David Watanabe" first. Especially do this if, for some reason, you are contemplating actually sending him your hard earned money. It will not take you long to come to a conclusion. Even a simple search here on macupdate should suffice.
