RSS Bot is your perfect companion to keep up to date with all of your RSS feeds in a simple, sleek and friendly manner.
All the information to keep you updated is available at your fingertips through this brilliant FREE app.
RSS Bot lets you:
- Check RSS feeds straight from your menubar
- Get Mountain Lion notifications for new rss items
- Filter RSS feed items, so only articles that match your keywords are shown
- Set the app to start at login
- Change notification sounds
- Open with Readability
- Choose to set a time for automatically marking feeds as 'Read'
Note: After adding a new RSS feed, you wil begin to receive notifications for RSS items (news articles) that are posted after the date and time you added the feed. RSS Bot will not notify you of old news items (i.e. those posted on the RSS that are dated prior to the date/time you added the feed to the app).
We've spent a lot of time thinking about the details and fine tuning RSS Bot, in order to make it your perfect RSS feed reader app. We're sure that within a few days, you will begin to love our little creative touches. We plan on a very active development cycle, so please spread the word and send us any feedback you may have!
- Improved support with macOS Mojave
Ratings and Reviews
Works well for my intended use
I read a lot of authors, and try to keep on top of what they have written. To do this, I used to have to search them in my library every month or so. Once I had 20 authors, it got really tedious. I was searching everywhere for a simple to use RSS to keep me up to date, but none of the free ones were able to create a feed out of my library's website. I didn't want to pay since the whole point of a library is to read books for free. This one creates the feeds easily, and actually works. I have been notified three different times that a new book has been ordered. Now, I can relax with my books and know that when the series continue, I will know and be able to get my next installment.
Cons: It does not take me to the page when I "read" it. Once the feed is registered as read, you cannot see it again. (Doesn't bother me because it isn't something I have to refer back to, but be warned.) A little annoying opening a new tab when I ask to create an RSS feed, but that might not be this app.
My go to RSS feed aggregator for years
This little app has stood the test of time in my fickle world of little Mac utilities. It’s a simple way to add feeds with filtering to all your favorite sites without annoying notifications or distractions. When I’m free for a moment, I simply check my feeds and get the content I’m looking for without any other noise. Safari will try to add any RSS feed you click to the reading list. I just say no, and then RSS reader will pop up and ask to add it there. Set a filter if necessary, and off you go. Simple, unobtrusive, and clean.
all my RSS feeds in one place
Sits at the top right of the Menu Bar, where it shows the universal RSS icon, easy to access all my feeds, all in one place and easy to add new ones, too, just drag a URL into the “Add Feed” window. When all feeds have been read, icon becomes white, and new items cause the icon to show orange again. Super simple and out of the way until you need it, just click the icon to see what’s been posted. Can’t believe it’s free, too.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
