Just some options I've found a few people discussing. Hope it helps. Feed Wrangler David Smith announced that he’s been working on an RSS aggregation service to replace Google Reader. Feedly ... just announced that if you’re using their app, they plan to seamlessly integrate the syncing to their own sync server. Fever ...a self-hosted feed ...

Yes there is and it is described in an article on the Flipboard web page: "We’ve Got Your RSS Covered! Save Your Google Reader Feeds Now". Basically you just have to choose Google Reader in the Accounts tab. Once imported, Flipboard will fetch the feeds on its own. So it will also stay when Google has shut down Reader. Just one more hint: If you want to ...

The closest one I've found is feedly and NewsBlur. They don't have native Mac apps, but have either web apps or Chrome extensions. The problem is the Mac app. If you look in the App Store, none of those news apps have Android versions (like Reeder). The apps that support iOS and Android (Pulse, Flipboard), don't do native Mac.

Here’s a Safari extension to view the raw XML data: https://github.com/sergeche/xmlview#readme There’s an online demo, too: http://media.chikuyonok.ru/xmlview/ This works in Firefox, Chrome, and Safari. Edit: Sadly, this extension doesn’t work in Safari 5.1. There’s an issue for that here: https://github.com/sergeche/xmlview/issues/16 Alternatively, you ...

Firstly, in order to integrate into Notification Centre, an app needs to have been purchased from the App Store. Only App Store apps can use it (same with most iCloud features). So your search needs to start there. 2 very popular RSS readers are Reeder and NewsNetWire. Neither have been update to use Notification Centre yet so far as I know, but for sure ...

Thank you for your answers. After trying different web-based tools and native applications I returned to Thunderbird. Thunderbird supports RSS-Feeds as well and allows you to specify the amount of time you have to view a mail or article until it marks it as read. It also allows you to disable this at all and to mark articles manually as read.

No, the iOS mail app does not double as an RSS reader. Fortunately, however, there are many great RSS apps in the app store, my personal favorite is Reeder (iPhone, iPad).

Consider Panic's Status Board app: it includes configurable modules for everything you've asked for.

Open Terminal cd Documents (or any other suitable directory) curl -o feed.xml https://www.zhihu.com/rss Use the text editor of your choice to open feed.xml

You may have found something by now (if so please share), but I just discovered Prismatic, which is similar to Zite, but on the web, and mobile. http://getprismatic.com/. http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/prismatic-perfect-desktop-alternative-flipboard-zite/

Newsfire archives entries as long as you want it to.

Based on the error message, I tried the following command and solved the problem: chown -R username: ~/Library/Safari So I guess there are some files or directories which does not belong to me. It's weird how could this happen because I never touched that directory manually before.

Try using http://images.apple.com/main/rss/hotnews/hotnews.rss instead of feed://images.apple.com/main/rss/hotnews/hotnews.rss.

I've added this rule to the end of /Applications/Reeder.app/Contents/Resources/article.css: iframe[src*="feedads"], iframe[src*="doubleclick"], iframe[src*="plusone.google"], a[href*=".ads."], a[href*="feedads"], a[href*="feedburner"], a[href*="doubleclick"], a[href*="//ads."], a[href*="api.tweetmeme"], a[href*="delicious.com/post?"], a[href*="digg.com/...

I use Reeder coupled with Instapaper: see something I want to salt away for offline reading, tuck it into Instapaper which caches it nicely. Instapaper also displays pieces in an "iBooks-like" way for easier reading with typographic control and more. http://www.instapaper.com/ The nice thing about this combo (one could also use Read Later) is that Reeder ...

I don’t know of an app that supports this. Perhaps you could add more than one feed: http://venganzasdelpasado.com.ar/posts.rss http://venganzasdelpasado.com.ar/posts.rss?page=2 And have iTunes handle it that way? Alternatively, you could create your own RSS feed based on the website’s HTML, rather than use the one the website is offering which is ...

Sure — the easiest way to do this is to edit the screensaver's Quartz composition file. It's located at /System/Library/Screen Savers/RSS Visualizer.qtz In order to edit this, you'll need Quartz Composer, which you may already have (if you installed an old version of the developer tools), or you can download it with the Graphics Tools package here. Open ...

Further research yields this solution to the problem: http://www.rubicode.com/Software/RCDefaultApp/ RC Default App is a (free) preference pane install that allows you to easily change what types of media are opened by which application. Although it has not been updated in a while it still works on Mountain Lion. I think this will solve your problem. I'...

Unfortunately, as far as I know (and that is usually enough ;), you can not change the default app that opens the RSS feed. Personally I use the Downcast podcast app, to add the rss feeds from Safari to my Downcast app is as follows: Go to the specific website and find you URL Press and hold the rss-link you are interested in Choose Copy Now go to your RSS ...

There is fever which works as an RSS combinator with a web-based interface and an API for various clients (e.g. Reeder). You'll need a hosting provider (or Amazon) to run the software on.

After installing an RSS reader, any attempt to open one of your existing feeds in Safari should open the RSS reader. For most readers, (e.g. Reeder) this will cause the app to ask if you want to subscribe to the just-opened feed. Once you've done that for a feed, you can delete it from Safari.

I'm sorry you felt the response you got on the Vienna GitHub page wasn't satisfactory. The issue was caused by a compromised web server that was serving you an RSS feed and also performing a normal HTTP request to a ransomware site. To add an answer to your second item, disabling JS and plugins in the internal browser should be more than enough. Attempting ...

An option you might look into is Feedly. They have a Safari plugin (and probably other browsers) and work well enough.

I use NetNewsWire, but if you're coming from something simple like Safari's RSS reader, I can see how it might feel like overkill. If you don't care for NNW, have a look at Reeder for Mac. It's got a simpler aesthetic, perhaps more to your taste. It's $4.99 on the Mac App Store, and does require a Google account, as it uses Google Reader for the backend. ...

Okay, after a long period of troubleshooting, I determined it was the MP3 file that was having issues. After importing it into GarageBand and exporting it from there, it finally worked! I received the MP3 file from the client. He is a preacher and they recorded it at the church. Then he uploaded it to Google Drive and I downloaded it from there. It sounds ...

Caffeinated is the only rss app I know of that uses notification center.

This might depend on the RSS feed. If the RSS feed only contains 5 entries, there’s no easy way for you to display more entries in the screensaver. If that’s the case (your question didn’t specify which feed you’re talking about, so there’s no way for me to check), you could create your own RSS feed based on the website’s HTML, rather than use the one the ...

Once an RSS feed is added to Mail, you cannot see the URL it retrieves anywhere within Mail :( There does not appear to be any way you can read the configuration using Applescript, looking at the dictionary, the RSS feeds are not accessible either as a distinct entity type or as a Mailbox type. The only place I can find this information is in ~/Library/...

If you use an RSS reader like Mr Reader or Reeder, you can add new subscriptions using the + button on the main screen of each.

The "appstorefeeds.com" website is not associated with Apple. That appears to be a third-party site that creates its own feeds. My best guess is that it creates these feeds by scraping Apple's own feeds periodically. This type of operation is not something that can guarantee that all updates to Apple's own feeds will be updated live to "appstorefeeds.com". ...
