Avoid the iOS version

Don Pickett

I've been using NNW for years on my desktops and laptops, and it's one of my most used applications. However, the iOS version has never synced properly, even after contacting the developers numerous times. I have tried everything including deleting and downloading the app multiple times, and creating a new sync account.

I love the desktop version, but avoid the iOS version until they fix the sync issues, if they ever do.

Buggy, not actively supported


It doesn’t seem like Black Pixel is committed to supporting (or improving) this app. It’s been failing to sync subscriptions and read status for a long time and the UI is glitchy. Support requests via twitter and email are mostly ignored, responses aren’t useful when they do come in. I was excited to try the new Kaleidoscope for iPad from the same developer but you’d have to be crazy to trust Black Pixel with your work after using NetNewsWire. Brent picked the wrong team.

Neat UI but bug fixes come very slowly


NNW has a great UI but has some acknowledged bugs that have lingered 6+ months.

As of 4.1.0, the UI status bar scrolling bug is still fixed but the “refuses to mark as read” bug persists, and a new strange one where the toolbar disappears during edit mode modals has appeared.
