Feedy is an elegant and lightweight RSS newsreader for your Mac. The simple interface and clutter-free reading experience makes it easy to stay up-to-date on the news from your favorite websites.
Feedy aims to help you find the content in your feeds that is most interesting and noteworthy. By using data from social media networks, Feedy rates each story based on popularity so you can find them easily, or limit the number of stories from a feed. There are a lot of other cool features too.
- Top stories highlighted so you don't miss anything important
- Use personal keywords to highlight stories related to your interests
- Limit the number of stores from a feed based on popularity
- Simplified reading experience and built-in browser
- Sort stories by time or by rating
- Support for Notification Center
- Folders, favorites, search and more
How do the ratings work?
Feedy assigns each item in your feeds a rating. The rating is generated based on the number of tweets and shares from social media networks, which provide powerful insight into how interesting and noteworthy an article is. Feedy also assigns high ratings for feeds that update infrequently, so you don't miss that rare new post from your favorite small website or blog.
Note: Feedy is a standalone RSS client that does not rely on third-party services. No login is required to use Feedy.

A wonderful reader - What I like most is that you are absolutely not attached to any web service. All the subscriptions and folders are stored locally. When Google Reader was closed, a lot of users and developers (making GReader-compatible apps) faced a problem - what to do, what service to use. I believe, Feedy developers have chosen the right way. The app itself is super easy to use and the design is merely gorgeous. Thanks for making a beautiful, fast and clean app that does it job perfectly.
More Reviews for Current Version
Looks great, pain to transition to - The app looks great. However, I subscribe to many feeds. Resubscribing to each one by hand is a pain and is preventing me from transitioning to the app. Having the option to import subscriptions through OPML or integrating to Google Reader would make it much easier to get started with the app.
Fast, thoughtfully done - The interface is fast, fun to use, and tweak-able. It would be great to have a quicker way of going to the next article while in the "viewing/reading" window. Also, Google Reader sync and subscription import would be welcome additions.
Abandonware - This software hasn’t been updated since version 1.0 and the developer isn’t adding any features or fixing any bugs. Buyer beware.
Almost There - There are so many features that are 'almost there' but in the end are thwarted by either lack of exposed depth or bugs. Pros: • Doesn't require Google Reader (though import would have been very helpful). • Readability integration works wil 90% of the time. • Ability to change font and font size is good for my aging eyes. • Best 'popularity' index of all the RSS readers I have tried. Cons: • Can't 'see' the actual popularity rankings. • Unable to set a threshold for popular stories. • Preload of web content on the web-tab is 'okay' but would like to see an option to turn this off as I have encountered several cases where embedded video starts playing from advertisements on the web tab, even when you haven't chosen it. • No OPML Import (this is a must have for any rss reader these days). • Absolutely no integration with apps like Pocket, Instapaper, or sending links to Pinboard, etc. Bugs: • Can't mark all items as read when inside a folder. • Crashes on me at least 4 or 5 times a week, something other Krillaps don't do.
Ok, but... - This has some goofy quirks that make it less than desirable. Whenever I open one of the stories from the main window, sometimes no images show up whatsoever in the resulting window. Also, where are sharing options? I have to take extra steps to open the story in a browser, then choose a sharing option from there.
