I used to think so too but since the latest update it takes ages to load. Prior to that it would load quickly, including feeds. What's happened?

As a ReadNow user I like this. But why does a desktop software need an in-app browser? I would love to have an option to hide this browser/read window while a double click on bookmark open it on my main browser.

Sorry to say this, but no demo version = no deal for me :(
This vast migration towards AppStore would definitely be frightening if there weren't more mature apps that allow plain download, demo versions, and even buying without belonging to Apple, mind you. I'll definitely pay MORE an app that I can try.

Tried this while waiting for Reeder to get updated to work with Feedly et. al.; I still think Reeder has the edge in usability and presentation, but there's no denying ReadKit has more functionality, synching with every RSS sync engine I know of.

When Reeder *finally* gets updated, I'll probably switch back to it, if only because I use the iPhone and iPad versions, but that takes nothing away from ReadKit, it's one of the best readers anywhere.

This is undoubtedly the best RSS reader for Mac OS X. The developer has fixed both of the problems that I mentioned in my review of a previous version -- so I'm happy to raise my rating to 5 stars.

Works well and the author is responsive to both bug reports and feature requests. I originally switched to a ReadKit+Fever combo after using Reeder+Google Reader for years and will probably not switch back to Reeder when an updated version of that app becomes available.

Great software, works with a multitude of different RSS and 'Read Later' services whilst also providing 'stand-alone' RSS service potential should you need it.

The software has been aggressively developed since v2 was released, many positive changes have been made by the communicative developer. These include the adding of features, general bug fixes and stability improvements.

I tend to change my mind a lot, having a software like this which smoothly and competently allows me to change my ultimate supplier of services and yet retain my software interface is a real winner!

This has quickly earned a place on my Mac, always running and ready to serve up the news.
