I like the concept a lot Rated 4 out of 5 stars

For you folks having problems installing it, make sure you activated your account after setting it up. I got that hash error until I responded to the activation email.

The RSS reader aggregation isn't a new idea, it's been something I've been toying with in different ways. I like the way you've started off with it in Snowl and I can see myself using this in Firefox to browse through sites that I check on regular basis.

The River of Messages is a neat concept. The formatting is a little messed up right now, but I like the idea.

It'd be nice to be able to set preferences on how many items you receive from feeds, how far back they go, etc. but I am sure the developer is already aware of that.

Four stars for now, but it definitely has the potential to be a 5 star app for me. I use RSS, Twitter (and Twitter's RSS functionality), etc. a lot, so this could be very handy for me.

Early Stages Rated 3 out of 5 stars

It's a good idea, it must be said. It's obviously in its early stages, and needs a LOT of work. It's very unpolished, and, I might even say ugly at present. The thing I worry about, however, is the UI. Is there not a more intuitive, perhaps more dynamic interaction with these tweets? Think Twhirl, Twitteriffic etc... or, better, think Piclense. I know they're flashy. But, this is a list. It's called a river, but it's a list.

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I personally am not much of a RSS reader. However, i was hoping that this application would support instant messages, but i was wrong. IF that could be worked into this app then that would be really neat.

i WILL like it... Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I will like it. Just not yet. Really buggy, creates some nasty problems with firefox (aesthetically, mainly), and isn't polished at all. once they work through it a bit, and there's some greasemonkey scripts for it (if that would work? idk) it'll be better. but not yet. I await version 1.0 (or at least 0.5?)

Couldn't find it Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thanks to someone else's review I found out how to start it though. Great add-on so far.

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

After installing, connecting Twitter, and importing my OPML from bloglines. I was a little confused of how to start. Eventually I realised it was "View > River of Messages", but it took me a while because I was looking for Snowl. The default sort order seemed a bit odd, I expected to most recent first.

Corrupted add-on? Rated 3 out of 5 stars

(this is not a report about a bug in the add-on itself)

Right now I can't install this add-on.

Windows XP, Firefox 3.0.1 - Restarted and tried again, and tried in safe-mode too; I never had this problem on addons.mozilla.org before. Here is what happens:

After logging in, the add-on installer starts - it downloads https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/downloads/file/35119/snowl-0.1-fx.xpi and then the following error message (sorry, italian here) appears:

Firefox non può installare il file in
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/downloads/file/35119/snowl-0.1-fx.xpi
poiché: Hash del file non valido (probabile download corrotto)
-261

Hope this helps!

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This has great potential, however, some elements of the interface seem almost wilfully obtuse - why is it in view - river of messages, when the user's instinct is to look for Snowl.

Adding an OPML file wasn't very clear either [green plus button bottom left].

Like the idea though, and if you can implement it quickly before Google add these features to Reader, then I'll switch. Particularly if it allows me to rebroadcast some of these in my own life stream. Anyway, now I'm rambling.

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

After some headscratching on how to get it going (View..River), I easily loaded up my feeds from Google Reader via OPML, and had a look. It's OK if a bit crude but with some nice features like an index of feed post authors and resizeable headlines. Don't have Twitter so can't comment, but as a plain feed reader this is not terribly competent. Hope to see more services added to assess its true potential.
