Version 3.0.1
Review by fgk

A step up - I was a long time user of another popular newsreader, which I loved for a long time but which never seemed to improve. I like to save articles to read later or send them to Evernote to keep. I read a lot of web comic feeds and like to see the comics fit the width of the window. I don't like slowdowns and bugs, and my old newsreader was not getting better. When I found out about Leaf I hesitated as I had already invested in the other newsreader, but I decided to give it a shot and I'm glad I did. First, it makes reading web comics a joy, I can see the panel at a size I can read, or if the site only provides a link it allows opening the page in a web view in the app instead of cluttering up my browser. Or I can use the browser if I really need to. The app sends articles directly to Pocket or Evernote, plus others. The UI is responsive and never hangs and uses little memory. If only it included an ad blocker it would be perfect (I hate blinky moving ads!). Allowing me to size up the web view would also be a nice improvement. Overall, this was a great purchase, it has improved my workflow 3X and I love how much time and trouble it saves me! Thanks guys, a great product!

Version 3.0
Review by drinkcomrade

The new update is hideous - I was a fan of leaf ever since reeder went down, but not after today. This new update makes content difficult to read with poor font choice and poor text color. Additionally the elgant shape and layout has been stripped from the app, making it no sleeker than any other RSS reader out there. Avoid.

Review by aarontyree

Functional, but too many popups. - Leaf is a simple, functional RSS reader, which is exactly what I wanted. But the pop ups are too much. "please get this other software! please rate me! please leave a review!! please give me attention! You dont want to be spammed on your own computer. Leaf does what it says, but be aware of the spam before you get it.

Review by ikafi

Privacy warning! This app is recording the screen - That is despicable! I have been using this app for years and this app has been secretly recodring my screen even when I am not using the app. Shameful! I am glad that I have updated my MacBook to macOS Catalina that provides me these privacy controls. Thank you Apple.

Best Mac RSS Reader - First of all, Leaf is Free! Second, it has all the features and customization you would ever want. I highly recommend at least trying it.
