Very functional Reader
I was looking for a marquee-style RSS reader for my Mac. This one definitely fits the bill and works as advertised. I have a dual-monitor setup and I was easily able to place the Marquee on my secondary display. It’s very easy to customize with content and has a lot of options. Overall very good and I’m very happy with it (works with Mavericks).
I have two suggestions for the developer. One would be to make the Marquee moveable (click & drag). It sits a few centimeters below my taskbar and I’d much rather be able to move it flush. The second suggestion would be to provide more bar styles instead of just the current one that has curved edges. I’d like to be able to have a simplified rectangular bar. But these are minor issues and are more about my preference than anything else. Overall very functional!
