News feed wonks rejoice - Fantastic way to keep on top of a few key news sources in real-time. Clean UI, lives in the menu bar, uses 10.8's Notification Center, works great.

Junk App - I really wanted to like this app but after paying for and installing it the app will not even accept feed addresses; it keeps saying "The feed URL you entered appears to be invalid" when it is not invalid! I went to the developers support forum only to see that someone else had already submitted a ticket with the same problem over 3 months ago that has received no answer from the developer. Save you money!

nice little app - A nice app for reading rss feeds rather than going to googlereader to check feeds - takes a (short while) to set up ie changing feed update to 5 mins from the default 2 (would be nice to do this all feeds from the preferencesbut apart from that an unintrustive rss reader that makes me use notification center - would be great to tweet/facebook rss feed directly from the 'centre too

So far so good... - I downloaded it from the AppStore because I have an .opml file with a lot of rss feeds out of Craigslist. Just imported the file and voila! is looking for my feeds every two minutes. That is what I need it for and so far is doing its job. Will see soon if new items show up on my screen as they are posted.

Thanks For Your App - I'd Like MenuBar Applications… i use this app and its great! But it's a notification application only… i mean you get notificated when a news come, but you don't have any Archive from them… So i Use Reader too...

No Keyword filter - I am rather disappointed that the keyword filter system that is in the Windows version is absent from the OSX. All this really does is to cram your feeds into your notifications. Once the keyword filtering is implemented, I can’t give it more stars.

Still Working.... - This is still functional after 6 years of no updates. Impressive. If there was a way to only notify when meeting certain critiera that would be great. Following a busy feed is a bit too many notifications.
