I just downloaded Zipline and see quite a bit of promise here, but I think there are a few things that would make it even better: 1. Ability to choose which calendars to monitor. 2. The icon next to the calendar items should show the date of the calendar event 3. The ability to filter the Console messages based on regular expression 4. Ability to import RSS feeds from another application 5. The ability to autohide Zipline until the mouse is brought within proximity of it's hidden location.

Good idea. But very bugy and unstable on 10.9

I was searching a replacement for the Firefox RSS ticker (no hardware acceleration, hogs CPU) and found this one. Runs smooth and can use other sources too. I had a question about this ticker and spaces. He replied immediately. Worth the price. Love It!

I like the options, but scrolling is jittery and the appearance is overall just kind of odd. Doesn't seem to obey my preferences either.

Mostly Outstanding. Found this program by accident. I used to use a program called Newsticker which was originally written for Leopard. I consider Newsticker to be an exceptional news feed program. Two years ago Apple released Snow Leopard and Newsticker would constantly crash. In fact, I have been using Newsticker up until today on a daily basis for the past two years and not a day has gone by that I haven't had to restart the program over and over a few times simply because my mouse accidentally hit the ticker. So, today I discover Zipline. Really nice news ticker. Far more streamlined, but a little less configurable. For instance, you can select scroll speed and width but you can't make the ticker itself larger or smaller. It sort of defaults to whatever screen size your Mac is currently set at. Really great that it allows iCal appointments to reside in the ticker but the information is a bit misleading because the iCal icon always shows one date instead of the specific date your event is scheduled for. For instance, I have a few events showing up in the ticker for different days but the icons all show the 17th. Otherwise, thus far, no problems whatsoever. I do hope the developer enhances this product further.
