Break­ing is bro­ken. It’s a no­ti­fi­ca­tion wid­get that doesn’t work prop­erly, that hasn’t been lo­calised and whose key fea­ture is of­fered by both Leaf and Read­Kit.

Daily 2 is sim­ple, but it’s a lit­tle too sim­ple for our taste and its per­sis­tent semi-trans­par­ent win­dow just gets in the way. It doesn’t scale well to mul­ti­ple feeds either. Nei­ther does Pulp, which of­fers a good news­pa­per-style lay­out but which isn’t suited to RSS junkies.

That leaves Leaf, NetNewsWire and Read­Kit. They’re all su­perb pro­grams, es­pe­cially for power users, but Read­Kit’s ex­tra ser­vice in­te­gra­tion and more ex­ten­sive dis­play op­tions give it the edge. It’s the same price as Break­ing but it’s from a com­pletely dif­fer­ent planet.

Read­Kit’s su­perb fea­tures make it a cut above the rest.
