Cloud Sync is broken with no support

Bobby T.

I’ve been tring unsucsesfully to get cloud syncing to work, but it won’t…

My steps to try to fix the issue now causes an error message dialog to periodically display on any system that I try enablign cloud sync on. The ONLY way to disable the error messages is to completely disable cloud sync and leave it off. The errors come back the moment I re-enable cloud sync.

After contacting support I got an indciation they would look into the problem.
That was over 3 weeks ago now and there has been no follow-up. In short support is non-existent...

It’s effectively rendered my iOS copy of NetNewsWire completely worthless, and also ensures I cannot sync content between my desktop & laptop systems.

If you are looking for an RSS reader that syncs between systems, this is most definitely NOT the client you are looking for.

DO NOT BUY if you expect Cloud Sync to work


Been a Netnewswire user long before Black Pixel acquired it, so was excited to see it come back from the dead. However, Cloud Sync has never worked and support is about the worst you can get. I found an email in my inbox from a year ago, where support asked me to delete the iOS app and reinstall and I gave them an update that it didn’t work, yet never heard back.

DO NOT BUY this app if you need Cloud Sync.

This App won’t open.


After a very long time of “NetNewsWire” telling me that it is updating the database, the app simply disappears — or at least it did when I woke up this morning. It disappeared from The Dock too even though I have selected “Keep in Dock”. Right now it’s been “updating the article base” for 10 hours. I’ve not been able to even open it.
