Still lacking some very basic features
I sorta liked NewsFlow, so sprung for Leaf. The first time it launched, I was able to log in to my Feedly feed, and it synced to give me unread counts. However, reading articles or marking as read didn't actually mark them as read. And the next time I launched it, it just gave me a spinning beach ball. Support was responsive and suggested some things, eventually I managed to google around and find out how to zap the prefs and reset the defaults via the Terminal, so it finally worked.
However, I was surprised to discover that it's missing some of the functionality that's included in Newsflow, such as showing your folders and feeds in a custom order. The order that it shows them in is strictly alphabetical, which I guess never really makes thematic sense (unless you rename all your feeds so that the logical order happens to be alphabetical, but I hate staring at folder names like aaaNews, bbbSports, cccTechnology, or whatever. You also can't rearrange feeds within a folder. Evidently this is still coming in a future version, but so far not yet.
The Feedly web interface lets you order your feeds manually, so I guess it's back to the web interface for me. Overall not fully featured enough to be worth it yet, for me.
Nice reader. very good looking; easy to browse my feeds. Very good syncing. A couple of suggestions: sharing to Evernote needs fixing. Leaf will not share unless Evernote is open, and the resulting note is not very clean. Thanks, and keep up the good work!
Update 4/7/15: Evernote sharing has disappeared from the share menu. Please let us know how to share to Evernote.
Update 4/9/15: An Evernote update disabled the Evernote share extension. I enabled it again in settings and it now works well.
Evernote sharing gone?
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 REMOVED EVERNOTE SHARING!
Bad move, PLEASE PUT IT BACK. I hate when developers play games like this, there is no good reason to remove functionality that users depend on without explanation. I'm going to start testing other readers to see what's available now.
