does nothing - broken. I put in my google account creds and it sits there and spins trying to "sync". Let it run all night. Nothing. Horrible app.

Broken - It syncs with Google Reader which is now shut down. The app is worthless.

Needs for feature parity with iPad version - I bought the Mac app sight-unseen, based on how much I like the iPad app. But I now regret that after finding that not only does it NOT have a built-in web browser like it's iPad brother, there's no "Mark These Items as Read" option - meaning that you can only select the entire feed as read, and not just the number of items you loaded in a batch. That makes this app fairly useless to me, since I'd be forced to leave the articles in the batch I scanned through as unread, or else I'd have to mark items as read that I didn't get to scan yet. That means I get to see the items I wanted to mark as read all over again the next time I try to read feeds.

Great - I didn't want to buy it because I knew I could just go on the Google Reader website and read everything there. But the UI is just too good. It's too simple and nice NOT to buy. The price was holding me back though. I used Mobile RSS on my iPad before I returned it, and I loved it. It would be cool if there was some kind of package deal where if you buy this one you can get a discount on the iPhone or iPad app. It would be even better if the iOS app was universal. Anyway, Mobile RSS is a really nice Google Reader client. I'm a big fan of it. Some things I don't like: It needs an unsubscribe function: I tried double clicking, secondary clicking, and I checked the menus. I clicked "Help" and "MobileRSS Help" but there's nothing there. NetNewsWire (the ad-supported version from their site, not the lite version from the app store) will let you unsubscribe from the app and it's free. For $5, this app should out perform any free app (ad supported or not). I understand how time consuming and difficult it is to build an application. So, as a suggestion, please add the ability to unsubscribe from feeds from the app. If it's already there, I apologize, but it's not easy to find. Feedback when sending to Instapaper: It would be nice if a pop-up would appear or some kind of dialog box to confirm that the article has been sent to Instapaper. I'm not sure if other sharing features return a notification because I don't use anything but Instapaper at the moment. In-app browser: This might be a tough one, but being able to view full feeds that have been truncated in the app rather than having to open a web browser would be great. I'm not sure if this is the sort of coding that would bump the price up the NetNewsWre level (I've only worked with C# for Windows Phone 7, where it is relateively easy to add a browser into an app) but it would be pretty awesome if the feature was there.

By far the best RSS reader - I've tried several of the other RSS readers out there and by far I believe this one is the best. I love how it syncs flawlessly with Google Reader and has the ability to cache articles for offline reading and is quite fast. It still has potential to grow and I'm hoping that the developer will put out an update to make it on par with the iOS version (which I also love), such as the ability to add feeds directly from the app. Right now one still must go to the Google Reader website. This is only a minor complaint however and by far I love the ease of use and look and feel. It does everything I want an RSS reader to do! Also, it has the ability to download the full post of some summary feeds and can search for previous posts. Oh, and also it would be nice to have the ability to e-amil the full article, right now it is a link to the article. However overall it is well worth it for the great features!
