any good mac rss readers out there?
need a change from net news wire
Try Socialite. I am using it till Reeder for Mac is released.
Thanks for the suggestion
but do you think its worth it if i don't put in facebook/twitter?
ps Reeder looks great!
any other suggestions
It's free to try. I love Socialite. It doesn't do a couple of things I have come to rely on Reeder (on iPad for). But other than the small niggling details, it does the job well. Never considered going back to NNW.
ill give it a few days
Any helpful shortcuts?
I use Google Reader. Instead of having a separate app for feeds, I have Chrome with the Google Reader Checker and Google Reader RSS Subscriber extensions and am quite happy with this method of subscribing and reading RSS feeds.
I would say the three are the most popular are Netnewswire, Vienna, and Gruml.
Netnewswire is commercial software and has Google Reader sync, and is my favorite at this point.
Vienna is a great free program and would be my choice if it only had Google Reader sync. If you don't need GR sync, this is the program for you.
Gruml is freeware, has Google Reader sync but is a little slow for me and has some rough edges. Gruml is certainly serviceable if you want something free with GR sync.
I've recently gone to this setup and like it's easy setup and fast operation.
I find that these three are far too similar
The RSS app category needs some innovation.
You're right especially when you compare the Mac offerings with all the interesting apps being developed for iPad.
Found Times recently and it's a nice change from the usual RSS readers, they're working on version 2 which will have iPad syncing aswell.
Times is interesting and will be even better with syncing, which is the main reason I've stuck with NetNewsWire on the Mac. But Times seems to be limited to three feeds per page/category. You can apparently change these defaults, but I'm stumped even after reading the instruction.
Yeah seem's you're right, on the iPad version it's simple to add more columns & feeds to any page.
I'm holding out till version 2 to purchase it on the mac anyway incase it's one of those updates where you have to pay again as until it has some form of syncing it doesn't fully meet my needs. So hopefully this problem will be fixed in version 2
