I have been an ardent fan for many years. I liked the iCloud syncing. Since the last update to iOS and macOS they have both continually crashed. I cannot even export my opml file - the app crashes when I try. It is time to try something different. 9months later I saw that the app has been updated. I decided to give it a try. While I did not suffer any issues the interface feels old and outdated compared to modern rss readers. Time has not been kind to newsbar

Cool

I use this app everyday to get streaming RSS feeds on market news involving domestic and international activities. Well designed for iPhone and iPad. I only recommend one thing, the iPad version should have dual column RSS feeds as an option - sort of like tweet deck.

Good app. Only a few wants.

This is the only RSS news app I've found that gets it done on both OS X and IOS platforms. Check out Thea's app: as slick as this one. Only two wants: story post time should reflect actual age of story IMHO, not time story was DL'd. Also, an app icon badge reflecting new stories available would be great, however this might require excess battery power to keep tabs. Some RSS apps I've used can do this. With no noticeable drain.

Broken in iOS7. No customer support.

Like many, I purchased this app and the related Mac app when Google reader went away. I had a question pre iOS7, and emailed support for this app. I never heard back from them. And now, as many have reported, it is broken in iOS7 and unusable. I hope an update comes out soon. In the mean time, they still never answered my support question and I am actively looking for another app to replace this one.

Not what I expected

The Good: imports your Google Reader Takeout file easily. Not so good: I think I'm spoiled -- I just expect "Readability" style formatting. So when this app shows me the actual web page with all its ads and junky formatting, I want to run screaming. So I can't say that this makes it a bad app, it's just not what I was expecting.

I love the easy to use, minimal interface. I also really like that it syncs with the NewsBar app on my Mac!

Nice transition from Google Reader

Like others i needed find replacement for google reader and settled on newsbar. I picked up both mac and ios versions and icloud sync works well. I find myself using ios version as i like to see sites in list form. Response of the app is very good and gestures work as they should. Gave app 4 stars for two reasons. First is i find myself having to kill the app from time to time and relaunching to see which sites have unread articles. Second is no way to reorder which is frustrating when adding a new site and things are not sorted alphabetically. Making the adjustment on mac app and syncing back is my work around. Would like to see in future update the ability to determine how often feeds are refreshed even if its at expense of battery life.
