RSS Menu is a systemwide menu that allows you to read and organize your favourite RSS, Atom and/or JSON feeds.
The articles are automatically updated and you will get a notification when new articles are available or when some other event occurs. In addition to visual notification, you can also enable speech notification and choose one of the many built in voices.
Key features include:
- easy to use RSS browsing with systemwide menu
- very fast parsing engine
- auto detects if a url has one or more feeds
- importing and exporting of OPML files
- many options to customize the menu
- support for saving articles for offline reading
- support for grouping feeds in submenus and adding separators
- support for favourite icons (aka page icons)
- supports RSS, Atom and JSON feeds
- fixed an issue with some feeds that would cause RSS Menu to stop working correctly

not able to increase font size
You can't increase the font size in the drop down menu that shows the rss feed stories. I want tobe able to take a quick glance, to decide what to look at . Well at least it was only a $1.99 lesson.
Not happy with V. 3.0, but 3.1 is good
Edit #2 - The 3.1 update restroed the ability to run in the background, and also to disable the Collection folders, which are totally redundant for my uses. The app is again as useful as before. Might not be perfect, but it is the best I've found for how I want to access my feeds. Kudos to the developer for bringing back the prior behavior so quickly!
Edit - Will revisit this review after the application update promised in the developer's response is released.
Original review - I've been using RSS Menu for years, but do not like the new release, I much prefer the previous background menu. The new app does not work well for how I use my computer.
I'd like to revert to version 2.7.4. I tried restoring the old app from backup, but after doing so, RSS Menu does not appear in the menu bar though it is shown to be running. So apparently the new version does something outside the app and its preference file that breaks the previous version.
Tried to contact the developer, but the email form on his website never sends, and eventually just times out.
Developer Response ,
Glad you liked it. Please feel free to contact us with any feedback so we can work on making RSS Menu even better.
v3.1.1 is slowly gettin there - where v2.7.4 has already been
In v3.1.1 I've disabled the Feedsbrowser as it doesn't add any value to my routine, thank you for that option. But now I can't edit the list of feeds anymore, it seems to be gone from the Preferences window.
And as we're at it, an option to disable the icon in front of every entry of a feed would be great. Also, bringing image previews back into the feed preview window would be lovely.
