For a couple of weeks now, I’ve been using NetNewsWire at home on my Mac Mini. I decided to go with it because from everything I’d heard it was the best RSS reader available for the Mac. It syncs with NewsGator (so I can subsequently sync with FeedDemon at work and not read the same posts twice), it lets me put things into folders and it looks okay.
But I’m not enthralled by it. Compared to FeedDemon, it just seems to be lacking something. It’s the little things that annoy me, such as the previously selected feed folder not collapsing when you go to view a feed in another folder. The fact that the folder and feed ordering seems to be done by date, rather than name, order (unless you manually reorder them) is pretty damn annoying too. I really miss the summary page that FeedDemon shows containing a list of all feeds with unread items.
So what other good RSS readers are out there for the Mac? I have 118 feeds that I subscribe to, all nicely foldered up. I’d like to be able to sync with NetNewsWire, but that’s by no means essential. What I’d really like is a clone of FeedDemon for the Mac, but I know that’s not going to happen. Does anyone have any suggestions for a Feed Reader for the Mac I should try?
If you really enjoyed what you just read, why not buy yourself something from Amazon? You get something nice for yourself, and I get a little bit of commission to pay for servers and the like. Everyone's a winner!
