My everyday news reader despite the weird user interface.

I have to say it. This is a case of version numbering gone mad.

Love this app! It has been my RSS reader for quite sometime now since adding the "View As Web Page" option. However, beta 12 & 13 have an annoying issue. I have my view layout set to "Condensed". In these last 2 betas the Headlines list for any particular feed is off. It's hard to explain but the headline for unread articles usually has a blue dot beside it, but the headline does no longer sit beside the blue dot, but rather above it slightly. So the top headline is halfway hidden by the top "Headlines" menubar. Have reverted back to Beta 11 for now. Will check back to see if Beta 14 will fix this issue. However, this program is solid and gets 5 stars.

What is called "Condensed" is now called "Vertical". Behaviour is still present in this beta. Have trashed preferences and installed fresh, no change. Seems to only do it in the vertical layout though.

Exceptional. Finally someone knows how to program for the real world instead of just the Apple world. Easy and fast maniplution and (re)organization via mouse and keyboard without memorization yet another endless set of shortcut keys, and yet the s.k.s are still there. Inline and tab based viewing, though I question how secure the internal browser really is. Even the betas have given me almost now problems at all.

Keep at it! And I'll keep following!

I cannot display the RSS host site on the left-side menu.
The application tells me I have a certain number of unread items, but I have no way to access to them.
Since I recently got the app, is there something important I forgot to do?
I have explored and tried all the scroll menus but nothing work.

If someone can give me a hand on that, please.

Thanks

Try :
- the Reindex database command (in Beta 12's Vienna menu)
- if you access feeds through Google Reader/Open Reader, the "Force Refresh selected feeds..." command

Don't down-rate an app until you have able to fulling test it. It is unnecessary in order to post a call for help. That is what "comments" vs. "reviews" are for.

The v2 was a great version but v3 has a different unproach to marking articles read which makes the usage unnatural.

So for the time being I am sticking with v2.x

Can you elaborate ? As far as I remember, nothing changed regarding this for the Report and Condensed layouts. The Unified layout was buggy in v2, and is still considered a work in progress.

What is an "unproach".

@Barijona:

It's not about layouts. It is the way keys work. With "space" the articles used to scroll until fully down then another "space" all articles in that group were marked as "read" and an automatic skip into the next group would result.

Now one has to use an additional/special key to mark "read' which makes going through a large number of messages/groups a tedious process.



@Cgc:

Never heard op a typo?

@Antoniong : in v3, the space key works the way you described for the Horizontal (Report) and Vertical (Condensed) layout. I'll try to make Unified layout behave the same in the future.

By the way, your opinion would be appreciated here : http://forums.cocoaforge.com/viewtopic.php?t=26269&p=137020

@barijaona:

Thanks for the explanation. I did not not expect the different layouts to react different. I will checkout the UL you gave me.

The unread count disappeared from the dock icon (despite being chosen in preferences) in beta 10. Or it's only my problem?

Just you. Badge remained for me.
It doesn't appear to hold the text size (when adjusted in the View menu) between 'reboots', but I'm not sure if that's a new issue.
Also, it sends a notice to Notification Center when there are new articles downloaded, but no way to disable that. I might downgrade for that reason alone.

Should be possible under Systems Preferences > Notifications, like with other apps.

Double clicking an article in the top RH window does absolute shit - nothing happens.

Ummm.... sure it does. It works here just fine! And it seems to work fine for all who subscribe to the vienna forums.

Something must be wrong with your d/l (or 'puter). Trash the whole lot and try another d/l.

Love the unified layout.
But I have many rss to read. about 1000 a day. So when I scroll too much rss. It cause huge ram problem.
If it auto release ram after we minimize the app, it would be great
