Just sign in to Google Reader when you first run Reeder and it will bring in all your feeds. You will need to sign in to GR anyway for Reeder to work. Reeder cannot import an XML/OPML file.

If you want a stand alone RSS app that can import an XML/OPML file, I know Newsrack, NetNewsWire, Vienna, and Caffeinated can all do this.

My question is: does it depends on google reader now? Or it was only for the first time?
Google reader will stop its service in July 1st.
Should I make a new login with Reeder?
Will it play with this google reader account in the future?
Does it need it to load rss from there, or just to import feeds for just once?
Stop thinking so hard.

Reeder is the front end, Google Reader is the back end. According to the Reeder developer, he'll have a solution by the time Google Reader is gone.

If what you use now isn't working, just wait a bit. There will be Google Reader alternatives in a few weeks/months.

Does these readers 'download' any stuff in hard disk?
I took a look in Vienna, I did not find any 'cache' or something like that.
I don't wanna end up with a heavy and cumbersome application.

They all cache some data on your drive. But you can configure how many days of articles you want to store. It really does not take that much space for it to be a concern though.

Personally, I love ReadKit! It integrates with Feedly and has a clean layout. Well-done and not too fancy. On my iPhone I swear by Newsify.

Just deleted REEDER on my mac. Love the IOS app, but seems the developer has abandoned MAC support. What a shame

He says in a Nov. 25 Tweet he is still working on it, but I'm with you and dropped Reeder some time ago.

Yes, it's sad like Weaselboy, I kind of gave up. Now I'm using ReadKit.

It doesn't have every feature known to man, but Leaf works well, and supports Feedly.

You can make your own Feedly app using Fluid.
