Does this version export OPML? *

Old version did not and the developer was silent in response to queries.

*No!

It would be a killer reader, but it's a yugo. A yugo with non-existant support and no developer responsiveness at all.

Version 1.5 looks pretty nice... The podcast video player is the best I've seen so far.

Sorry, but I didn't see any interest on this RSS reader compare to the quality of Vienna how is free and Open Source.

"Postino will change the way people experience RSS."

How? Can you give me one good reason to download this software if I already have NNW or Endo or something similar?

the developer sold the rights. I believe he's still going to be developing -- but it's often not the same when you move to a commercial product that was once developed with the passion of a committed shareware developer.

to be even more blunt: NNW for months has been *50* times slower than the (free) Vienna. I heard that its last release was now faster (easy!) at the price of dropping Spotlight compatibility.

I can say, having *bought* NNW pro, I now have dropped it definitively. NNW was the best, but long ago.

Now, I don't know about Postino speed :-)

The more the merrier, I guess. I just can't help but wonder how this application could possibly sell well in light of:

NetNewsWire Lite which is free, and looks to have similar/superior functionality, tested over 4 years of use.

NetNewsWire which has been the class leader for 3-ish years, and has definitely superior functionality, by far.

Shrook.

NewsFire.

Safari having RSS support built in.

A host of other solutions. Talk about "me too."

I don't mean to discourage application development, but following along, 4 years behind the competition, with nothing compelling and new to offer... not the best business model I've heard of.
