It is sad to see this go down. Maybe it will reemerge as a multi use RSS news reader.

I wonder what will happen to Gruml (and other readers that depend on Google Reader) when Google Reader shuts down in July? Is the beginning of the end of the RSS format?

Overall rating should read FIVE STAR.

Reluctantly let go of NetNewsWire which has not functioned well since Simmons left. Looked for replacement, found Gruml--excellent! All the best of NNW, easy to configure, pulled in all my subscriptions without error (and there were far too many of them.) I may at some point find something to nitpick about but, after two days of heavy use, not yet.

Elegant and basically easy, and FREE. Quite a value. Does lots of things more easily than Google reader, most notably adjust type size for various screen resolutions. Shows authors. Has it's own tabbed browser. Two things I wish for [1] a way to choose to actually hide articles when read, so only the unread remain in the cue, and [2] a way to make such suggestions to the developer.

A suggestion to the developers - perhaps somewhere in your app AND on your website it might be nice to provide a way to contact you, or at least report a bug! You have a bug tracker page that is offline.

This app is fantastic with exception to one very annoying bug, if you download via the app it slows to a complete crawl until the download completes.

Why anybody would pay for a crippled, feature barren app like 'Reeder' when this far superior app is free is as confusing to me as the appeal the Khardasian sisters hold for so many people.

Fn awesome!

Can't get three pain vertical layout out of Vienna. Google Reader sync not done there yet. NetNewsWire continues to bounce around like an (apparently buggy) tennis ball between payment models. Apparently people who paid $30 for v3.0 had to pay another $15 for v3.2. Ouch.

Gruml just works out of the box. Some money going Andreas Schwelling's way. Love the simple looks.

Anyone know what's new in 1.1? I can't find any info on the website. And I'm always a little nervous trying out apps that get access to my Google Account info.

Unfortunately, Resume support under Lion means that the app has a habit of quitting when it's in the background and the window isn't open. :/

I like Gruml a lot, but it seems to lock up when left running for more than an hour or so at a time. I know it's a beta, but this is a pain.

I am on Mountain Lion 8.0.1 on a MacBook Pro.

All of a sudden, I can't post articles to Pocket/Read It Later. I've restarted everything, checked all the preferences, and searched for other people with the same problem.

No explanation or solution. I'm using Lion, OS X 10.7.4.

Excuse my ignorance, but how do I delete a title. No matter what I highlight, the "select all" and "delete" remains grayed out under edit.

I'd recommend that you perform the procedures you've mentioned via Google Reader, that's the path I follow when faced with the issues you've described, works every time, however, the change(s) shall not appear on Gruml unless you quit & restart it, refreshing Gruml doesn't update the feeds and/or its name changes.

Hope I've helped you, please let us know the results.

Thank you Falstaffa. Yes, editing via Google Reader works. I should probably have figured out that myself, but I believe most viewers let you delete titles directly ( I might be wrong). Anyway, its not a deal breaker and I look forwards to exploring Gruml further. Cheers, B

Woops! I was wrong. Despite having deleted the titles in Google Reader, they remain in Gruml ( at least for the time being ).

Well, I was expecting a solution to the Flash issues I've described experiencing with Gruml 0.9.18 and 0.9.19, as soon as I received a tweet from Gruml's developer announcing the release of 0.9.20.323 I downloaded it and installed it.

Unfortunately, the Flash issue symptom I described on Gruml 0.9.18 has manifested itself again, in that case the plugin missing/not found image (lego block with question mark) was displayed where a Flash preview should be visible, I took a number of steps to verify whether the problem was at my end or not, after having concluded all such steps I sadly confirmed that the glitch is a Gruml specific one, none of my other Webkit applications displayed the glitch behavior.

I have reverted to Gruml 0.9.17, which as was the case before trying 0.9.18, 0.9.19 & 0.9.20, works perfectly, without any Flash related glitches whatsoever.

Gruml 0.9.19.12 refuses to load any Flash content, this Flash related bug is not the same one I found on Gruml 0.9.18, in that case the plugin missing/not found image (lego block with question mark) was displayed, in the case of 0.9.19.12 nothing shows up when clicking Flash content to play video, I've AGAIN reverted to Gruml 0.9.17, which works without any glitch.

I can't keep version .18 running on any machine, crashes after about 2 mins. Can't really tell what the problem is. I've switched back to the .17. I have about 500 feeds in 15 folders on Google Reader. I'm not sure if that's unusual or not.

Version 19 doesn't fix the problem for me. :( Gruml won't stay running for more than 2 minutes before it crashes.

Gruml 0.9.18 refuses to load any Flash content, I'm reverting to 0.9.17, note to developer, if it ain't broke, don't fix it.
