Ratings and Reviews
Great Potential...3 issues need fixed
I love Fiery Feeds on iOS and iPad. The Mac version is servicable, but needs three things fixed. 1) Full screen mode strips away the toolbar for reasons unknown? 2) When you open the app it always opens it in a compact mode instead of the window sizes you last left it. I always have to stretch the app. 3) When you click into an article the article list sometimes jumps around in the left column. Its odd behavior.
Otherwise Fiery Feeds feels very simlar on the Mac as it does on iOS as a catalyst app. I'm hoping Lukas continues to iterate on it and fix these three issues.
Update, two of the inssues have improved with updates, while the third issue remains. .
Developer Response ,
1 - Is already fixed, coming in version 2.3.6
2 - Please disable "Close windows when quitting an app" in the mac's system settings > general, the app window is considered a new window by Catalyst, and doesn't retain the size/position.
3 - Yeah, still looking into this one.
I never used the iPad version so it's a constant delight finding the varous design choices in Fiery Feeds. I'm not sure RSS has ever been this much fun from a UI perspective. And very powerful.
Developer Response ,
I’m a solo developer, but I read and try to answer all emails. Especially after a major release like 2.4 it might take a day or two until I get through my emails though.
The issue with iCloud syncing is fixed, and local accounts always worked correctly. At least I assume that email was yours :)
Not as pleasing as iOS counterpart...
I recognize this is likely an early Catalyst experiment. I can't keep the app open for more than 2-3 hours at a time before it soars to 11GB of RAM usage. Even when RAM usage is low, the app is jittery and not close to being as pleasant to use as the iOS version.
Will continue to support development through my premium subscription, but hope this version gets better as Catalyst development improves.
Developer Response ,
It is indeed a Catalyst app, and I am aware of some performance and usability issues as the app needs different adjustments for the Mac than on iOS.
You can expect regular updates to fix these issues one after another though.
