Reeder is one of the famous iOS application, and for good reason: it makes Google Reader feel smooth and Mac-like. Now you can get a (really) early view at Reeder’s desktop version.
The developer of Reeder for Mac calls this release a “Draft 1,” and notes that some fairly core functions—search, feed management, download management—are missing, and that a lot more is likely missing, too. But Reeder’s core mission of running your feeds through a filter with good fonts, crisp alignment, and a generally iOS-like interface is being accomplished. The iPad-like “Send” button in the upper-right offers a whole lot of options for saving and sharing articles, and the layout is helpful for those who like to run through their feeds in groups.
It’s first Beta release so is not fully feature loaded. Authors points out few.
What’s still missing:
- Feed management
- Probably more…
But for a first Beta release it looks awesome
