Laggy but good alternative to google reader This is the first app that I actually bought. Together with the local installation of tiny rss server it works wonderful. I now can browse through my RSS feeds and this app allows to download them for offline reading which is the most important feature for me. Browsing is a little laggy though. When quickly scrolling through articles it doesn't feel smooth at all. Still, a great alternative to the retiring google reader service. Plus with the local running RSS server I have full control over the data.
Works well but... Good luck with trying to get support. The author of this software seems pretty belligerent with people who report bugs so I'm not completely sure I want to deal with an angry Russian man calling me an idiot. Especially after I threw money at him even though I could just compile the app myself for free. -1 star for bad PR.
Who needs Google Reader? Looking for a Google Reader replacement? If you've got a web hosting account why not setup your own Google Reader with Tiny Tiny RSS reader? You'll never worry about your favorite RSS reader being "phased out" again. Needless to say, I highly recommend.
Usable I like the idea of hosting feeds myself. This reader is ok, it works. But it is really ugly. Especially reading the articles is difficult. Mainly because of bad choice of font and line height.
An RSS client and server backend for (only?) the discriminating consumer. It has become the destroyer of G Reader for me. Setting up your server is not hard if you follow the wiki. You will need to read release notes and FAQ prior to any upgrade and perform an exhaustive search of the forum if you encounter issues.
Sad I paid The developer removed the 'set article unread' function out of spite because he said his users are 'whiny bitches'. Until it's back this application is useless because Starred Articles will just fill up with uncategorized crap. Without the unread function you'll find yourself forgetting to visit Starred and articles will just go to die.
