RSS feed reader.

Overview

Monotony is a very simple feed reader. It does exactly one job: you subscribe to RSS and Atom feeds, Monotony checks for news every minute. News are displayed on the desktop as notifications, featuring the headline and a summary (if there's one). To read a news item in your default web browser, just click on the notification.

There is nothing else. No Google Reader sync, no frontend, no possibility to customize it. Monotony runs as a menubar app or, if you choose, invisible in the background. That's all. Monotony has been designed to blend with Growl, the desktop notification system, and with OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion's Notification Center.

What's new in Monotony

Version 1.5:
  • Monotony now has Retina icons.
  • A dark mode bug in OS X 10.10 was fixed.

I've been using this RSS reader because it hides itself in the Notification Center to update feeds. Unfortunately, I am very sad it no longer downloadable from Mac App Store, I wonder if the developer can bring it back as a stand-alone app for High Sierra and future Mac OS X? Thanks, I really, really love how this RSS reader works.

Monotony gives the opportunity to have a closer look at (only) those news items which really draw your attention while passing by. Lightweight efficiency or 'Simple is beautiful'.

Well it takes a day but it does show in Notifications the essential headlines of the feeds. It does exactly what it says and I will give this app 5Stars for its features!
