Fix this app, please.

Newsbar is great for what it is. However, it would be a much better program if I didn't have to play "babysitter" across multiple apple devices. I use iCloud for multiple cross-functional programs and Newsbar is the only program I have issues with. That is, if I view/read a Newsbar article on one device, then that action should be represented across all iCloud connected devices. Sometimes it works great while other times it does not. Please fix this. Thanks!

Would be amazing if kept up-to-date

The Good:
• Syncs with Mac app really well
• Simple and effect rss reader
• I love his implementation of keywords

The Bad:
• Not kept up to date
• No dark mode
• Doesn’t use full ipad screen
• Doesn’t do multitasking with other apps

The Real Bad:
• Developer not responsive

This app allows you to get around all the “pay” services for rss and has simple sync with Mac OS X. I hope the developer updates the app or sells it to someone else for development because if has so much potential. I’d pay for 2.0 version if it hall the things addressed above without going to a subscription model.

The app is compromised

I have been using this app for some time now. Recently, my Notification Center is being bombarded with porn spam messages. I manually check all my feeds on a computer and they are clean. I have tried reaching out to the developer and no response; the developer is MIA. I’m going to park this app for an updated one. This review is intended to warn others that the app is outdated and may have been compromised.
