  • update: I'm modifying my review due to @sg2002's great investigative work. To get this thing working on Linux Mint 18 beta, the following command is needed before running: sudo ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ That's it. Double-click away.

  • Tried them all! RSSOwl is quick, easy, and flexible. Syncing with Feedly may be useful for some users (not me). The google feedreader feature should be removed.

  • Sadly it doesn't have sync with Feedly. These devs are living under the rock if they still have syncing with Google Reader in the software.

  • This is considerably the best rss reader for Mac OS.
