Editors' Review

Vienna for Mac keeps all of your favorite news feeds in one place by providing a feature-rich, open-source RSS and Atom newsreader for the Mac OS X operating system.

Vienna for Mac installs quickly and features a well-organized and easy-to-navigate interface. On the left menu there are three folders available for classifying articles as well as a list of available subscriptions. By default there are links to Vienna Support, Apple Hot News, Mac OS X Hints, BBC News, and similar, with the number of available news items. By clicking on one of these, a list of available articles appears in the main window. With a click on any news item, the story will be displayed in full, in the output window below. By default the text is large enough and easy to read, but the font type and size can be changed in the Preferences menu, which additionally offers more options for customization. Users can add a new source via the Plus button available on the main menu by entering the URL of the news feed or choosing from available options such as Blogspot, LiveJournal, etc. Additionally, users can also share what they are reading easily, via Facebook and Twitter.

Vienna for Mac offers an all-inclusive solution for those who love staying up-to-date with several news sources and like sharing articles through popular social media platforms.

"Awesome software, really stable and useful"

May 31, 2013  |  By drumsandmusic

 |  Version: Vienna 3.0.0b11

Pros

* it works (no crashes or unstableness for me - been using this for a long time)
* clean, simple UI
* Open Source
* Free

Cons

* no solution currently to read your feeds on iOS (I think we'll see a solution once google finally kills GoogleReader soon) so let's let some time pass and see what solutions will see the daylight in a few weeks)

"A well designed and versatile RSS-reader. Easy to use."

January 02, 2011  |  By Karl-Erik Hallenius

 |  Version: Vienna 2.5.0.2501

Pros

An elegant, nice looking and versatile RSS-client and it's FREE! The application is stable, reliable and very easy to use.

Cons

So far, I haven't found any flaws.

Summary

I have tried several RSS-readers and Vienna has come out as number one.
It is very easy to add RSS-feeds and the feeds are easily arranged into folders and subfolders according to your own wishes. Folders and subfolders can be kept in an order according to your own preferences.

The application has been found very stable and I haven't had any crashes or found any odd behaviours.

"NNW Replacement?"

August 02, 2009

 |  Version: Vienna 2.3.4.2305

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I am looking for a replacement for NetNewsWire since its MobileMe syncing will be dropped (and Google Reader is not a consideration for me). Although Vienna lacks some of the features of NNW, it is serviceably clean and crisp. After a few days of testing I feel quite comfortable with it. Since it is open source, I may even try my hand at some hacking. Additionally, AppleScript support is perfectly adequate for accessing APIs like Twitter, tumblr, Instapaper, et al, and its database can presumably be rsync'd to other machines using launchd, and so on. All in all, a nice piece of software and worth your time for a few days test drive.

I hope the Vienna developers see the current direction of NNW as an opportunity for them to have the #2 reader people will be looking for.

"Great product"

January 06, 2008  |  By BaroqueW

 |  Version: Vienna 2.2.1.2210

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Great product, great price-value!
Easy to use, regularly updated, localized, free. What else could we ask for?
You can select multiple styles, make your own smart folders, etc.
The only regret is that it would be nice to be able to select different views for each folder/feed.

I've used a few of the 5 star RSS readers from Version tracker. This one works the best for me. Easy to set up, easy to use, great preferences, nice GUI. I'd highly recommend this to anyone looking for an RSS reader.

"I cant believe this is free!"

February 24, 2007  |  By glthomson--2008

 |  Version: Vienna 2.1.1.2109

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I have been a faithful NewsFire user for more than a year. This is the first free app. I have tried that can stand up to, or beat, NewsFire. If you haven't paid for another RSS reader, give Vienna a try. If you have paid for one, give Vienna a try anyway.
