Cyndicate

Version: 2.0.3 || Release Date: 2011-07-20 || License: Commercial with demo ($29.95) Developer: Cynical Peak Software, LLC. | App Owner: factoryjoe

The next generation RSS/Atom aggregator and content management application for Mac OS X. In other words, Cyndicate will help you manage, view, read, and rate the syndicated content or feeds you’ll find on personal blogs, news sites, forums, and around the Web.

Leveraging Mail’s familiar interface and ease of use, Cyndicate presents syndicated content with an article centric paradigm. By treating the article as the base unit instead the feed itself, you have more flexibility performing actions around them with finer granularity. This article centric paradigm makes following blogs and web sites via RSS feeds as easy and efficient as reading email.

oooh, thanks cynicalpeak for the tip :) it makes much more sense to me now since I have about 70 feeds in my default reader and it would be a mess to set up rules to get them categorized in their own folders :)
would be nice though if Cyndicate had the option to use folders and rules even when you put it in subscription view (a feature I missed since I usually keep the toolbar hidden in such applications).

I'll keep an eye on it, thanks again and keep it up! :)

gustomela, it sounds like you're missing the concept behind Cyndicate. It treats feeds in a manner similar to email then to how other aggregators threat feeds. The idea is to set up folders and filters to manage incoming articles. It gives you more power since you can organize each article in the way you want.

If you want a straight feed view though, it has that too. You can switch over to the feed list from the folder list. This is done by pressing the feed symbol that's in the segmented control in the toolbar.

Hm, I paid for NetNewsWire and it's worth every penny. Cyndicate looks interesting.

Off topic observation: I've been noticing that many Mac users seem to want everything for free.

Meh. Safari has a built-in RSS reader which is good enough for simple use. Vienna is free alternative for those looking for more. Why pay $30 for things you can get for free?

downloaded and given a try: I don't understand why every feed you put into it goes to the "inbox" folder and not in a single specific subscription...
this makes it impossible to me to stick with it.
I like labels and rating a lot, though.
