    For those Byline users, I have a quick question...

    Is this correct from what I'm seeing.

    In Google Reader, I have folders that has subfolders such as below.

    Technology
    ...MacRumors
    ...Engadget
    ...Ars

    In Byline, it only shows Technology folder and all the RSS feeds from all three feeds are mixed together under Technology.

    I have tried Feeds, Netnewswire, Newstand, etc. and all seems to have the structure of subfolders. In all reality, Feeds is the only one (Google Reader wise) that allowed the Technology and it's subfolders to be incorporated within the app so if I want to read MacRumors stuff, I have to drill down to the Macrumors folder. The good thing with this is that I can just read through specific subfolders/feeds rather than seeing everything in one page. In Feeds, there is an option to do this too which was nice I guess but I'm hoping this isn't the case with Byline and I'm missing something.

    Thanks, please let me know.

    Correct, this is how Byline works. However, check out Gazette which does exactly what you need, and it syncs seemlessly with Google Reader.

    that is currently the case with byline... however, the developer has a google group and I believe he said the ability to drill down to specific feeds was coming in the next release.

    Thanks for the option but I can't keep buying RSS feeds after RSS feeds..lol. It seems like Byline is the top contender, unfortunately, it's missing this thing. I will take a gander at Gazette, nonetheless.

    Ok that's good, I will see if I can wait. I don't know how long this is going to take.
