Customer Reviews

ReadKit is the best!

If you’re looking for a nice RSS reader on your Mac, or perhaps a native app through which you can read your Instapaper qeueue, or maybe you want to finally trim down your unread bookmarks in Pinboard, look no further than Readkit. I love this app. There is no Instapaper app on OS X and despite the number of great Pinboard clients on iOS, there aren’t so many on the Mac. Of course, this isn’t a full-featured Pinboard client, but it is great for handling your unread qeueue alongside your RSS and Instapaper. Create smart folders to organize by account, dates, and of course much much more. Easily share to numerous services and set your own keyboard shortcuts for them. View in Readability view, or Web view. Go into focus mode when you need to concentrate on the words at hand. Readkit supports all of the major RSS services so you probably don’t have to worry about that. I use Feedbin and it’s been great with that. Before a couple months ago, I used Feedly, and it also worked like a charm. Readkit is full of great features for processing your RSS and other sources of unread articles and posts, including Pinboard, Instapaper, and Pocket. It looks nice, it serves its purpose perfectly, and makes it easy to work with, whether you’re trying to get through it quickly, or relax and enjoy some good longform reads. Check it out. It’s worth it!

Used To Be Good

It used to be good. I stopped using it as an RSS reader, but reinstalled it to use with Instapaper and Readability. Only problem is, I can’t get it to work anymore. My old RSS accounts return to preferences no matter how many times I delete them. The Readkit window never does appear. When I quite the application, I get a “multiple validations errors” message. Then a Readkit popup says “Could not save changes while quitting. Quit anyway?” The app closes whether I click “Cancel” or “Quit anyway.” And when I open it up again, the whole thing starts all over. Unfortunately, I haven’t found another app that syncs with Readability and Instapaper. I’d use Reeder, but that only takes care of half of what I’m looking for. At this point, if I want to read offline, I gotta go to the mobile apps.

Good reader but Flash can’t be deactivated

I use it with Feedly and as a news reader, does everything it needs to do and works very well. The only problem I encountered is that the option to “Enable browser plugins” does not work, or rather the disabling does not work. Flash always loads which is a big pain not only because of ads but also because a lot of Flash is buggy and crashes the reader. ABC News is one such horrible offender. Please fix the plugin support, so that plugins can be properly deactivated.
