The only Reader/Aggregation app that I've kept Installed

It works with Safari to view RSS and ATOM feeds without using too much storage. I can follow podcasts and browse episodes without accidently adding to my iTunes Library. The Played/Unplayed feature in iTunes is unreliable so i use this app to keep track of podcats episodes i want to reference. The abilty to Mark Article as ”Flagged”/Starred is worth the hideous ‘web green’ icon. The terrible GUI for displaying RSS articles keeps me from using this app more (See third image above.)

Great RSS Feed App

I really like LuckNews, I’ve been using it on multiple Macs for several months now. Updates feeds very quickly. The app design is very nice, if I were to request any changes it would be to have the option of changing the article’s headline layout, for example removing the grey background and then having the option of opening the feed article in the applicaiton rather than the external browser woudl be super. But overall an excellent feed reader that competes well with the paid ones that are out there.

Simple, clean and works great.

I just wanted a simple reader to look at a handful of blogs and continually changing web pages, and this fits the bill perfectly. It’s easy to add pages. You can quickly see which sites have updates, and review them one at a time. I like that it’s easy to designate viewing the page in its native web format. I also appreciate that I can see when a page last updated—and therefore quickly identify blogs that have gone dark. And hey, the price is perfect.
