Great app - This is a really nice news reader app. It’s easy to use and configure. I use it to read the blogs of all my cruising (sailing) friends. It is much easier than going to each site in a web browser.

Review by Thetaguy

It would be great if you could add more than 8 feeds - You have to purchase extra capacity if you want more than 8 feeds which is fine if it would just let you do this but all I get is a message telling me it can’t connect to the App store. I hope they get this worked out.

Version 3.2
Review by D'or2

Simple, clean and works great. - I just wanted a simple reader to look at a handful of blogs and continually changing web pages, and this fits the bill perfectly. It’s easy to add pages. You can quickly see which sites have updates, and review them one at a time. I like that it’s easy to designate viewing the page in its native web format. I also appreciate that I can see when a page last updated—and therefore quickly identify blogs that have gone dark. And hey, the price is perfect.

Version 3.2
Review by ipafan

Great RSS Feed App - I really like LuckNews, I’ve been using it on multiple Macs for several months now. Updates feeds very quickly. The app design is very nice, if I were to request any changes it would be to have the option of changing the article’s headline layout, for example removing the grey background and then having the option of opening the feed article in the applicaiton rather than the external browser woudl be super. But overall an excellent feed reader that competes well with the paid ones that are out there.
