    Pros: 

    clean ux, lightweight, simple, readable...and totally free!!!

    Cons: 

    share settings are bare bones, could be more robust

    i like it. it's everything i want in a rss reader minus some share settings. in particular, i'd like to be able to tweetdeck, reddit, and slack. it's a really great tool, and free! fyi tho, if cappuccino were looking to monetize, it's the sharability of the content in the reader that i'd pay for as a PRO-level upgrade or whatever. either way, five stars and two thumbs up for cappuccino.

    Pablo Manriquez has used this product for one day.

This looks *very* similar to Reeder. Can you point out some of the differences?

This used to be a Google Reader client like 5 years ago and now looks to support native RSS feeds. It's free b/c it's in beta right now (per URL).
