I'm torn...
I really like this app. But I also like free rss reader. To win me over, do the following: Space the icons on the bottom. I find myself hitting the wrong icon all the time. When viewing the story, give me a link on the bottom to launch it in Safari. I've noticed links in stories with target _blank do not work. Finally make the bottom icons on story view more intuitive. Upon first impression I had no idea what they did. Aside from this, I'm impressed at the speed and stability over free rss reader. Great coding with no crashes (which free rss reader does ALL the time). Thanks.

This app deserves a higher average star.
The search feature blows the other RSS readers out of the water. It has one of the best interfaces in any of the reader apps. And it looks like the developer is paying attention to the requests of the users. While this app in not yet five star perfection, it deserves a higher average rating then it has. Most of the complaints of other reviewers have been addressed, It has refresh all and mark all as read capability. My personal feature requests are; • Increase the height of the article title cells to display long titles with out truncating the text. • Alternate the cels background color from white to light gray to easier visually distinguish the titles/feeds (like the itunes list view). • It would be nice to be able to rearrange the feed order in the main page. • I'd like to be able to mark a feed to save for later reading. • Lastly the ability to delete the read feeds out of the interface. Instead of just grayed out. Add those features and it would be a six star app. Thanks.

Not bad! Nice and clean look. Smooth and fast. Big problem is you can not download podcast feeds! This is an oversight that cost two stars. Also how about two other features none of the others have, the ability to mark as read or unread. Not all but each article. That way when it updates you can keep an unread article to show a friend or come back to it if you were not able to finish it. Adjustments like that will bring your ratings up!

Stupid problem
I'm a perfectionist and I flat out refuse to use this app until you shorten the name so all of it fits. '...' should not appear in the apps name! I keep my phone too organized for that BS.

At first I couldn't get it to work at all and wanted my $ back. After installing the new version it works great, especially for podcasts! The new search function is great but some of the sources are outdated and useless. Hand typing the proper URL works. I hope this app continues to be supported/updated. If so, it's worth the price.

Could be better
Why don't you fetch RSS title automatically while adding a feed?
