What RSS reader is the best? I don't want it be web based.
I like Vienna.
I like Google Reader. It may be web-based, but I like it, especially since I can access it from work and don't have to worry about syncing or anything.
i have tried many RSS readers for mac. Even the built in ones (mail, safari). But i have set on useing Google Reader. As the poster above said, it keeps everything sync. Between my home computer, iPhone, and work computer. Very good web app there.
is netnewswire good?? i am having a headache with it on syncing..
It's pretty good, but I find Vienna to be faster.
Im still looking for a good desktop app for the mac to sync with google reader.
Mail has an RSS reader.
NewsFire is the best I have found and I have used all the ones listed above.
Let's get this straight - you are looking for a non-web based app to view web content?
I tried several RSS readers on the PC but in the end settled on one of the on-line aggregators - free; works anywhere I can get internet access; if I add a feed from one machine I can see it from others. No idea of RSS apps on the Mac but I don't really see the point now.
I really like Times that came with the Macheist bundle, but it suits how I read the feeds. I'm not interested in seeing the data the second it comes in - I prefer to launch the app and read the articles like a newspaper, then shut it down. It might be bit innefficient for people who want to be constantly updated, although it does sound a chime when new articles are received.
I was going to say NetNewsWire but Vienna looks pretty good so I will reserve judgement until I've used that.
I like google's rss reader It does the job
My problem with Times is that it doesn't always update (sometime for a day or so), and the newest article isn't always listed first.
yea, there are many problems with times.. its good for news reading i suppose, but not for something you need constant update..
I use Google Reader inside a Fluid application with Helvetireader applied. So it feels like a desktop application.
I have tried most of them but this solution is what I really like. Just until Google breaks Helvetireader and I have to wait for an update, then I start looking elsewhere;
NewsFire is an application I really like if it has to be a native OS X app and not something web based. The first rss reader I bought.
Times is having some character issues with some of the websites I subscribe to.
NetNewsWire is great but a little overkill I think. Atleast for my rss usage.
Vienna I have tried but it has some UI mistakes I don't like(don't know if that is still the case though).
I would recommend NewsFire for that desktop application feeling and Google Reader with Helvetireader inside a Fluid application.
Ditto. Nice, lightweight, and fast
Another vote for Vienna. I've used NetNewswire when I would read stories on the computer and on my phone. It sync'd up nicely.
