NewsBee is a minimalist RSS reader that lives in your status bar and helps keep you clued into what’s happening without causing the usual distractions that plague most newsreaders (i.e. 1000+ unread stories blaring at you).
I made this app to keep up with what’s happening in the world of Hacker News. I wanted to be able to dip in at my leisure, without going to a web page or dealing with the noise of a regular RSS reader. As the app progressed, I figured I’d add the ability to change feeds and show popover previews of content. That said, I’ve never left the core principle of “one-site-at-a-time-so-you-don’t-get-distracted-by-new-shinies”.
