Icon Feeder 1.5.10

Feeder is an application for creating, editing and publishing RSS feeds. With Feeder you don't need to understand RSS to create feeds and publish them to the web. RSS is a technology for distributing news on the web. Many news sites, organizations and weblogs publish RSS feeds to keep people informed of the latest news, product updates and more.
Podcasting is another rapidly growing use for RSS - simply put podcasts are like radio shows that people download and play on their iPods, computers, or other MP3 players.
Feeder supports the full RSS 2.0 specification, including enclosures for podcasting and is packed with thoughtful features to help automate and enhance the experience of creating and managing feeds from start to finish, such as editable templates, auto-completing fields, HTML previewing and more.

Icon MacReporter 2.6

MacReporter pioneered the desktop news reading market for Mac OS X back in 2001. It allowed users to quickly get notified when new articles were published on their favorite web sites, and read those articles without having to navigate deep inside web sites. It used a very simple yet unobtrusive Dock menu based interface, and remained silent when nothing was worth mentioning so that you could go on with your daily duties. Over the years, desktop news reading became a big phenomenon, seeing the rise of standards such as RSS and Atom. Since it debuted while those standards where still in their infancy, MacReporter had been using its own way of proceeding, allowing it to fetch news from just any site, not only the web sites that provided RSS feeds, which was pretty powerful for the time being. A new era has now begun, and it needs a next-generation MacReporter to give you full power over the ever-increasing mass of available information. Effortlessly reading news has never been so easy and productive at once.

Icon NewsFire 1.6v83

There's a variety of RSS readers on Mac OS X, but none offer the style of NewsFire. NewsFire is brimming with Aqua-beauty and a rich, dynamic user experience. The others feel aesthetically unpleasant, bloated, and stuck in an interface paradigm that doesn't make sense for RSS. The kitchen sink is deliberately not included in this app - NewsFire is intensely focused on simplicity. NewsFire snubs complexity for a minimalist interface that is intuitive, unobtrusive, and a total joy to use. NewsFire supports the two major feed formats - RSS and Atom. It also imports and exports OPML, a standard bookmark-like file format for news feeds. Importing your feeds from another newsreader is dead-simple!
