My Reviews

Bamboo Feed Reader

The update even beats Google Reader Rated 5 out of 5 stars

So glad to see the refresh and mark-read buttons displayed on every feed, including all-feeds. Keyboard scrolling works in the content pane now. And I actually like the new, less stark theme. Bamboo now fits my reading flow like a glove with less clicking. The only things I can think to ask for are longer intervals (every 8 hours?) and/or scheduled updates e.g. at 9h every day.

Bamboo Feed Reader

Good core, bad frills Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Pro: the old, clean, well-loved Google Reader layout brought client-side. Works well enough.
Con: pervasive and annoying fades/transitions/animations that can't be disabled. Terrible to no keyboard control (e.g. scrolling, dismissing modal windows). Looks like an HTML5 app. Memory-hungry. Cannot manually update collections of feeds without building a composite view of read stuff, auto update periods far too short.
