It's nice... http://www.newsfirerss.com/And send feedback email! I for one love it but would like to see Mark As Unread as an optionFirst-class stuff... Comments Reply 1 of 7 ipodandimac Posts: 3,273member February 22, 2005 10:52AM uh ya its decent except that it costs $19!!! it doesnt even have Podcast support, has several bugs, and the developer is a jerk. If it was $5, i would agree with you that it's a great app, but not for almost $20. Reply 2 of 7 hmurchison Posts: 12,341member February 22, 2005 11:14AM Quote:developer is a jerkHow so?

He got free beta testing out of us without us knowing the app would be $20 the next day. After some complaints, he tried to pull a smooth one and lower the price to $19. Wow what a deal...

The shareware nag warning seems like a small annoyance, but for $19, that software seems reasonably priced.If NewsFire follows the same development curve, it might be a similar bargain, but if Safari or other browsers pick up the RSS ball, I don't know how that will impact the market.YMMV.
