Update: Theres been a couple of performance updates put out. Also, an update is coming out where there’ll be faster syncing 🙂 Now we wait.
Byline, by Phantom Fish(3.99 for a limited time!), is set up just like the mail app. What it does is organize your gmail feeds. It puts each feed as a item in a table view, and it even shows your folders. But, one downside is that when you have new feeds they all appear under the new feeds section, and you can’t see, like in the web app, each individual feed, like when you have a bunch of new items, they all show up in one great folder, you don’t see each feed with how many new items are in it; but there is an easy way to fix this, put your feeds in folders, put one feed in a folder and then you know how many feeds are in that folder alone. I use this on a daily bases, actually an hourly bases. It’s very well organized, syncs quickly, and can handle the 1000 or more feeds a day I get. Oh yeah, and there’s offline reading; you can either set it up to constantly save all you items, or just the one’s in your stared folder and note(the second option is the one I have set up). What I do is I sync the feeds, if I want to actually read one I star it and then continue browsing titles. This is so after I get out of wifi I can read all the feeds I want to.
You may say well what about Gazette, well a Gazette review is coming.
Pros and Cons
Sometimes when syncing there’s lag
Doesn’t organize into each individual feed
