Missing some really basic features
As a standalone RSS reader, this leaves a lot to be desired.
As far as I can find, there’s no way to delete a subscription once you’ve added it. Nor can you edit the displayed name of a subscription — you’re stuck with whatever text the site chose to include in their RSS feed title, which often includes helpful stuff like “RSS Feed”. I suppose this is mostly meant to be used with a feed service where you control that sort of thing at the service, and maybe it’s fine in that case.
There are cosmetic issues too. The menus seem oddly laid out, not very much per Apple guidelines. And there are lots of little tool icons all over the window, which you get to guess at the functionality of because none of them have pop-up tooltips. I’m sure I’d be fine after some time using the app, but it’s pretty unfriendly to a new user.
I wanted to like this, and it has some nice touches, but it just isn’t addressing my needs.
Great when not crashing!
I love this app when it works. But very often when I’m using the in-app browser to open a link, or click a link to open in Safari, it will crash.
Very frustrating and the app hasn’t been updating very frequently.
Update: I contacted the developer numerous times, as well as sending the crash report to the developer EVERY TIME it crashes. Never got any response back! Agree with the other reviews mentioning the support is terrible!
Crash prone, no support at all
I’ve contacted the developer many times; playing videos in full screen mode typically crashes the app. Never any response. I’m now going to look for a replacement app.
