Ratings and Reviews
The product idea is great, but lack neccessary usability yet.
First, the overlapping problem. When I choose to float the newsriver on top, it overlaps the top panal of maximized windows for other apps. As far as I know you can ask for permission of Accessibility to control the window layout and overcome the overlapping issue.
Second, lack of bulk import. I have many subscribed feeds. I don't won't to add all of feeds mannually.
I think the solution is promising, but only when with proper level of usability.
