This appears to be a port from Windows and as such exhibits the interface design methodology typical of Windows programming. The most fundamental action (pasting your feed into a field and hitting return) should be instantly and immediately obvious upon launch. Instead there are rows and rows of tiny, inexplicable icons with other rows and rows of tiny menu items and nothing pointing the user to the primary functionality of the program. The functions are there, no doubt, but impossible to discover without spending hours learning the programmer's mind and method. Not good, in other words, and I deleted it after 1 minute of reviewing the interface.
Note to developers everywhere: not only does interface design matter, it's critical!!
thanks for listening . . .

Sorry, this program hurts my eyes. It's free, which is cool, but I'm a sucker for good looks and NewsFire takes that category hands down.

I am new to the world of RSS and I have installed several RSS readers. This one has an 87 page user manual as well as a succinct tour guide. Using it is so enjoyable that I installed it on my G5,iMac as well as on my Windoze machine. Succinctly the flexibility,and features offered by THIS newsreader are wonderful! The author should be commended and encouraged for offering it FREE! I would GLADLY pay 25 to 35bucks for this app if it were shareware.
