Great for freedom from third party aggregators… UI needs a tweak

The primary issue I have that prevents me from awarding 5 stars is that when you are reading an article and scrolling it, you (I) naturally want to move the content near the top of the screen and with NewsBar, it jumps to the next article the moment the last bit of content appears at the bottom of the preview screen. You simply can't scroll the last bit of content to the top of the window.
This makes no sense to me. I can think of no use case where someone is going to read every single article in their feed one after the other (in reverse historical order no less). People scroll not to move on to the next article, they scroll to see more of the article they are reading at a place that is comfortable for their eyes.
Even when I scroll back to the article I was trying to read, 8 times out of 10, I still try to scroll it and end up skipping to the next article AGAIN. It's very frustrating.
I bought this and the desktop app purely and only for the iCloud sync feature.
I need a way to keep my rss feeds the same on mac and iOS, as well as mark as read the same on both.
The GUI is not so great, and the syncing can lag a little at times, but because it does sync without requiring some aggregation service, it's a winner for me.

Newsbar on both iOS and macOS *were*my go to rss readers

I have been an ardent fan for many years. I liked the iCloud syncing.

Since the last update to iOS and macOS they have both continually crashed.

I cannot even export my opml file - the app crashes when I try.

It is time to try something different.

9months later I saw that the app has been updated. I decided to give it a try.

While I did not suffer any issues the interface feels old and outdated compared to modern rss readers.

Time has not been kind to newsbar

Can't log in to Twitter. No support, either...

Love the Mac app, but this one is a disappointment. Not only is Twitter login non-functional, but email to support has gone unanswered for days.
