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.
