Well, I posted not long ago, extolling the virtues of FeedReader, but I’ve run into some bugs that drive me absolutely nuts. Take this for example. Everytime I restart the app, it tells me that my website has 276 new entries! That’s because the app isn’t properly saving or reading whether a post is marked as “read” or “unread”. Sucky.
Enter Beaver, a great new app just begun this month. It has all the simplicity and usefulness of FeedReader without all the bugs. And we’re only at v0.3.9! Kudos to Sumod — I look forward to watching the development.
UPDATE: On Dave Winer‘s recommendation, I installed another small RSS app called WildGrape NewsDesk… I was less than impressed. Nevermind that I had to download and install a BETA of the .NET Framework, but the UI is repulsive. For starters, there isn’t a subscriptions button. It’s hard to add customized feeds, e.g. my RSS 2.0, and it doesn’t have a familiar 3-pane layout. Kinda lame.
