Customer Reviews

Very well done!

I’ve been using Leaf for a long time. It’s the only RSS reader I use, and it works flawlessly with my Feedbin account. It’s a very, very well made app. I’ve never had a crash, the interface is attractive and user friendly. It’s highly customizable too. But a note - The customizations (such as font, layout, etc.) are NOT in the “preferences” menu. I was looking for them there in the newest versions, and thought it was just a feature that had been lost. But it’s now at the top right, along with a few different preview settings for articles. So it’s all there, just in a different place.

It’s rock solid, reliable, attractive, and makes reading news a lot of fun. I’ve tried all the other top rated RSS readers in the app store, but this one is by far the best. The same dev also makes a lightweight version called “Newsflow” and it’s good as well, but I prefer the more full featured reader personally. I know the price seems steep for some people, but you literally cannot find a better RSS app for Mac.

Auto Subscribe to Company Feed?!?

This Rocky Sand Studio people are horrible! This app, although somewhat functional, does a lot of sneaky, scummy stuff. It *auto-subscribes* to the company’s feed!!! This is NOT OK! If it does this, then what other potentially dangerous stuff does it do? Does it steal my email and sell that to advertisers even though it’s a paid app? Probably. This app also asks me to leave a review almost immediately after launching. How am I supposed to know how good the app is to rate it that quickly? Besides, this is a paid app! I’ll only rate it when I’ve determined. Stop doing that.

Avoid this app and any other apps that this developer makes. Besides being scummy they also don’t answer any support requests so you’ll get no support after buying this app. Just avoid it completely and get another RSS reader. There are plenty better ones on the store anyway and you should try those.

A new release, a new UI bug

I use this app everyday and think it is one of the better RSS readers available since it does most things well and stays out of the way, but this recent update SELECTS ARTICLES without bothering to check the sort order, so, for me it always auto-selects the most recent article, which messes up feeds that are posted in sequence.

Recent releases have introduced UI bugs which could have been caught with something like a checklist of features and someone to sit down and test each item on the checklist, which is a minimalist form of QA, an absolute requirement for a professional software company. C'mon folks, get it together, there are lots of competing products and this is sure way to drive customers away. Well, at least this customer.
