I like this reader, bought it today. It works very well. However, some parts of the UI aren't that nice. The "+" button, "Back" button, "trash" button etc shouldn't be in the style they're in as they don't fit the UI at all. Maybe consider making their fill transparent with a light outline. Just my two cents.

This app has had no update in over a year now. It freezes, crashes and is a waste of money. I wish I could get a refund for this. My recommendation is skip this developer and any of his applications.

This is a really nice RSS reader. When I monitored hundreds of feeds NetNewsWire was the best. Now that I've trimmed down to a few dozen I want something lighter. What it does best is give me a broad overview of my feeds. This saves time. The inline summaries are well-designed and compact (compare with Vienna where each article in unified mode is huge). I can see article lists without using disclosure triangles (ahem, endo) and articles are grouped by feed, unlike those readers that try to look like e-mail programs. Its closest competitor would be NewsFire. If you like NewsFire take a look at NewsLife and see what you think. I've had two problems: Podcast enclosures won't download and it won't refresh feeds when I wake my computer. Given this is a 1.0 product that's not too bad.

Its a little too feature-free for $20. I like to be able to sort my subscriptions, say by number of unread articles, or by name. Maybe wait for version 2.

Yes I agree $20 seems steep. Compared to Vienna which is free and works pretty well.

Nice- reminds me of Democracy. I think $20 is a bit much for this emerging market. It doesn't fit in my shareware budget- still if you like it consider the purchase if only to support the developer. On the plus side it woks pretty well and seems stable (G5 iMac). -Edified
