Superb app with one glaring problem that makes it useless (at times)

I use it for Feedly and it works as a charm, well most of the times. The only time I had problem was when viewing articles that require me to login like WSJ or WaPo. The Leaf’s built in browser allows to me to login, but then gives me a blank page. If I load the page again, I have to login all over once again. Looks like the built in web viewer does not handle popups and cookies correctly.

No problems, I sent a message to customer support and thus far I have been met with stone silence, I am sure they are all busy, but would have been great had they responded even a day or two later.

Aside from this, this is a great app for reading news, well Feedly at-least.

Straight forward, well-designed RSS feed aggregator

I was searching for an app just like this after using Feedly on the iPhone for so long. While Feedly is available on Mac, I felt like trying something different. Leaf did the trick for me. It integrated with my Feedly feed right away and performed exactly as an RSS feed reader should. There are several reviews on here talking about how it’s so annoying to have to plug in RSS feeds for this to work. Well, that’s kind of the point of an RSS reader.

Overall, it’s well designed, clean, easy to read, and does a great job serving up the news I care about on my Mac. Bravo!

Replacement for Newsflow

I was using Newsflow, also from Rocky Sands, when I had some issues with syncing with Newsify on my iPad. I decided to delete and redownload Newsflow only to find it is no longer on the app store. Leaf has solved my syncing problems and I love its design. There are several appearance options and font choices. You can share to a wide variety of other apps and have only those you choose appear in the list. This is a great RSS reader.
