"Good, but needs optimization"
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
This is getting much, much better, but it really needs to be CPU-optimized. When it's checking RSS feeds, the SPOD appears and you're locked out of the application until it has finished updating. This also happens when you quit the application.
Other quibbles are the way font sizing is set for both the RSS feed display as well as the web page display: why is there no way to actually SET a font size? You can change the size using the cmd+- and cmd+= keys, but there's no way to actually set a default size. Also, the interface to display "All Channels" is confusing - it's ordered by date, but when you click on the name of the feed, it displays ALL of the feeds from that site. I'm not sure how this could be better implemented, but I found it a bit bewildering.
Still, this is definitely improving. The ability to view a site's page right in the app is nice.
