not able to increase font size
You can't increase the font size in the drop down menu that shows the rss feed stories. I want tobe able to take a quick glance, to decide what to look at . Well at least it was only a $1.99 lesson.
It somewtimes lags a little but I'm on a beta OS and other things are lagging too.
Simple & Unintrusive - Fantastic
RSS Menu is the first time in a decade I've found a way to really enjoy RSS and make it part of my workflow; I credit its simplicity and the degree to which it unobtrusively blends into OS X.
A few minor UI quibbles/requests:
- It currently takes too much digging through the UI to add new feeds. Please add an "Add Feed" (or "Manage Feeds") item to the main menu (or make it an option in "Appearance," which is a great feature BTW). A hotkey would be even better. The holy grail would be an "auto-detect feed in frontmost browser tab."
- If it's possible, it would be incredibly helpful to have an option for some "mark" indicator icon other than a checkmark. If you're used to iTune's UI for podcasts, unread items are marked (which you give the option for - thanks!). But there's symbolic dissonance with an UNread item having a check next to it. It's just plain confusing! A bullet point (or really anything) would be much better - again, as an option.
- The ability to select which feeds notify Growl would be awesome. ("Receive Growl alerts when this feed is updated?" would be perfect.)
Other than those annoyances, this really is the easiest way I've ever found of staying on top of the news I want to read… and you can't beat the price!
Works great, no crashes
This is a great RSS reader that lives in your menubar. Unlike other reviewers, the app has never crashed on me.
I especially like that every story has a checkmark by it that goes away once you have read it. That makes it very easy to keep track of what you have or have not read.
I do have a small nitpick: you are not able to edit the name of any of the feeds. However, when I emailed the maker of the app about this, he replied that he had already submitted at fix for this issue to Apple. So, expect an update to fix this issue soon.
