Since I've now released eNewsReader, I've created this thread for people to provide feedback...

I'm responding to this post.

Downloaded and its quite amazing program!!!

Thanks :)

Any intention to make it localizable (.catalog)?

I've never done that before, so hard to say whether I might do it. At the very least it would depend upon a lot of interest in eNewsReader (and me having the time of course).

Quote:
And maybe a minimal Project menu with Settings,Iconify,About,Quit will be handy.

What settings?
MUI windows already have an Iconify gadget
The main window already has a Close (quit) gadget

And there doesn't seem much more info I could including in an About window than is already in the main window's title bar

Quote:
Maybe some kind of newsbar (ala XNet-RSS has scrolling newstext) will be nice (or as a docky plugin)

I haven't used that myself, so I find it hard to imagine how it'd be useful when you have more than 1 or 2 feeds...

I'll be glad to pay for it 5/10 EUROS as a small fee to use the "free/full" version.

Thanks for letting me know. I will be keeping a "score" of how many people are interested!

This is good to hear.

I'm a bit worried you say you've done that, because I am *not* currently selling eNewsReader . If yours was the PayPal donation I received, I have refunded it...

(I'm still waiting to see how many people are interested in eNewsReader, before I decide where/how to sell it, and at what price.)

The DONATION was just that. A recognition of your work so far.

You sent it back.

Looking good!
I will definitely save this binary and see if i can get used to launch it instead of the browser. Old habits die hard.

One thing that might be cool (atleast as long as there aint too may newsfeeds to read from) is to have it running iconified and get rhingiho notifications (or from a docky in amidock) when there is something new to read and then just click on the notification to have enewsreader to be uniconified.

looks interesting but I actually enjoy running the rounds of various sites so this enewsreader might not be for me right now anyhow (need to get used to it) but I appreciate the work you've put into it and would gladly pay for the program once it's completed.

I find it very useful, it saves me lots of time going on various news sites.

And some sites are really slow to load with Odyssey (and full of ads). With eNewsReader, you go straight to the news :)

Would it be possible to click links (or having the possibility to copy/paste potions or the whole text) in the summary of news item ?

I'm with smf with his idea but it would implie an automatic check to update all items.

Very impressive work!

I'll purchase it.

It works nicely opening the item into Odyssey. Might be nice to separate
out the "News" gadget group into its own window, so it could coexist
using less screen space as a narrow list next to Odyssey on the same
screen. ie, act like a sidepanel to Odyssey.
