Works good but...
The program lacks a mark all as read button. This means for those of us viewing feeds with lots of content such as netflix new release feeds you either have to read every item or live with the unread counter saying you always have unread feeds. The search feature is an awesome feature but it seems to be limited in its search abilities. I followed the instructions from the creators blog saying to be very specific in your search. I typed in netflix new releases but that feed is not found. Yet I know it exists so it had to be manually entered. Another concern is reading the creators blog seems to indicate that updates are worked on when he has free time or vacation. This makes me feel like tech support and app sugestions being implimented will be a very slow process. Address the mark all as read and I will gladly increase my rating :)

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 The new search function is great but some of the sources are outdated and useless.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.

best free rss reader on the market
4.5-5 stars!!! I love this app!!! Wow being away from home without sportscenter, I can still keep up to date with all the news happening in mlb. the search feature is what puts this app in the front of the pack. Some suggestions: make it so you can read the entire feed within the app without having to go to an external site. Some of the "media" cannot be played because the "format is not supported". please try to fix this if possible. but overall I have nothing to complain about. The best rss feed reader in the app store.

One of the best apps out there, hampered by bugs galore
This application is clean and fantastic, accessing and displaying my feeds in a wonderful, easy-to-see fashion. Some minor issues are that there needs to be a "Refresh All Feeds" button, so you don't have to click each feed to update them, and also a "Mark All As Read" button. However, these minor issues didn't warrant a 1-star rating, more like a 3-star. The real issue with this application is stability: it crashes constantly. I cannot go more than 20 minutes without the application choking and dying. Sometimes this happens in the main menu, sometimes this happens while refreshing a feed, sometimes this happens while scrolling a feed, sometimes this happens while clicking on a story, sometimes this happens while reading a story, etc. There's no logic to it, it just fails constantly. I absolutely love using this application, and I love that I got it for free, but the constant instability is just terrible. If that one problem can be fixed, this will be a 4-star review, and if those minor issues are fixed as well, I would only wish that I could give it 6 stars.
