Greed is the name of the game, when you charge twice what an application is worth. There are plenty of fine alternatives, several that are free.

$19.95? For a news reader? Greed? Stupidity?

I purchased this app today after testing a bunch of them. I like how the filters, labels, auto rating, and smart filters features work together. If you have a lot of feeds then it may take a little time up front to configure those four things to take "full" advantage of them. However, once you do that you will see how this app outshines the others and does the best job of organizing the feeds and providing view options that boil the information of interest to the top. There are many features with this app, you have the option to be in total control of what is going on and how to manipulate the data. In my opinion the only negative thing I can say about this application that documentation needs to be expanded. I expressed this to the developer and he very quickly responded and advised they are currently in the process of providing additional documentation. If you try this app take the time to understand all of the features and how nicely the the label, filter, auto rating, and smart filters can work together to present the the feeds in a very efficient and effective manner. Even thought there are some free alternatives I felt that unique features, stability, speed, responsiveness of the development team regarding questions, and logical workflow all made this product worth $30.

I've been sceptical about cyndicate at first. Why another RSS reader? Even a paid one? I tried it and found one feature there is only to find in one other RSS reader which is postino. It's the ability to read the news instantly when choosing an article - not just switch to an preview and no more need to open the news in tabs or even the browser. Up to now netnewswire, vienna etc. lacks this specific feature. Besides cyndicate is fast, faster then postino, same as fast as netnewswire or vienna. I hope the account for former pulpfiction user will be encouraging.

This surely looks very very close to the past rss reader pulpfiction. In Fact it uses almost every icon and design pulpfiction used - except the app icon itself (see comment below). I wonder if cyndicate will accept my pulpfiction license key. I also wonder if cyndicate will offer the style sheets that where once available for pulpfiction. There was one which made the website load direct inside the preview window instead inside the default browser app. Anyway there sould be a statement concerning the former pulpfiction users.

Cyndicate will not accept your PulpFiction license key, no. PulpFiction users will likely get a discount - we've yet to decide how much. We will decide before the demo's 21 days pass. Cyndicate uses none of PulpFiction's assets - code, icons, etc. Naturally there is a resemblance, as the people behind it are the same, and it follows the same model. As for stylesheets, Cyndicate switched up the model a bit. You can visit http://forums.cynicalpeak.com/viewtopic.php?id=196 to find out how to make compatible stylesheets for Cyndicate - it should be relatively easy to convert your PF stylesheet. However, it sounds like the feature you're looking for is one for which you don't need a stylesheet at all (and didn't in PF either) - you simply set all of your subscriptions to display the "permalink content" rather than the "feed content" and the website will load in the article viewer. You can toggle this at any time, per-article, with cmd-D.
