Easy to use, practical, and convenient - This app is really good. It is easy to customize with the news feeds you want. You can choose to have it always on top of your open windows or just let it run on your desktop, depending on how often you want to check the headlines. If a story interests you, a simple double click on the headline takes you right to the source. Fantastic! I use it both for news and professional RSS feeds and absolutely love it. Also, the developer answers feedback faster than anyone I’ve ever seen—really dedicated and cares about how the app works for people.

Very Faulty - - It’s terrible how it doesn’t let you select your desired speed of news flow. It takes FOREVER to read just one headline because of how slow it is. - Sometimes it just switches to Spanish out of the blue and there’s no way to change it back to English - I’d very much like to see more customization options, especially considering it’s a paid app. Things like size of the headline bar, speed of flow, and the way the headlines are shown (for example, instead of only giving the option of a horizontal flow of text, I’d prefer to have each headline move in vertically as is the case on CNN on tv) - After a few months, I completely stopped getting any headlines. It kept saying “retrieving lastest news” but for months I got nothing. And I was always on a reliable internet source. I tried deleting the app and was going to redownload it, but it required me to pay for it again so I just chose not to. Very disappointing...

Great App! - I am a journalism student, and this app is perfect! I can customize the ticker with multiple RSS feeds, and it constantly keeps me up to date! If a headline interests me, I can click on it and it brings me to the direct article. Thanks to this app, I feel like I am constantly in the loop. The look of the ticker is awesome; I always get complimetns from my friends when they see it on my desktop! There was only one time when I had an issue with this app. The scroll bar disappeared, but I emailed the developer and he was very friendly. He responded immediately, and fixed the problem. I highly recommend this app!

The best news ticker on the app store — but author needs to further tweak to make it even better - I love news tickers. Have purchased every News Ticker on the app store. This one, by far, is the best. First, it’s nice and large. It’s not this tiny little ticker like the “other” Apple app. It certainly can stretch the entire length of your small Macbook to your large iMac. Adding news feeds is pretty easy. Just Google “RSS Newsfeeds” and you can find addresses to just about anything. In all, an exceptional ticker. Now the minor gripes… 1. Would like more cutomize ability such as ability to change colors of the ticker itself. Perhaps give each text feed its own color. You can make the ticker transparent, but it’s not as noticeably transparent on my Macbook than my iMac. 2. Scroll speed is probably just about right, but it would be great to make it faster for those of us who want a quicker read of all the latest news. A variable speed setting would be phennomenal. Other than that, you can’t go wrong with this ticker. Trust this ticker guy — I have tried them all and this one is the best!

Great app that I’ve been looking for - Works great, you can resize, customize with RSS Feed URLs (Reuters, ESPN, etc.) I would like to have ability to speed up the scroll and position on the top menu bar. But definately the app looks great on bottom of the Thunderbolt display. Simple, good color scheme and font.

Review by Shannon Delle

Excellent App! - I love this app, though I feel it would be made more perfect if we could increase the speed of the scroll and change the font size and style to our liking. I emailed the developer my feedback and he/she promptly responded saying that he/she will consider that maybe for later releases of the app. My fingers are crossed. Very nice work on this app. Very.
