Cynical Peak Software on Thursday announced the release of
Cyndicate 1.0, a new newsreader for Mac OS X. It costs $29.95, and a 21-day demo version is available for download.
Cyndicate helps you stay on top of RSS and Atom newsfeeds from your favorite Web sites. It provides tools to manage, view, read and rate syndicated content you’ve subscribed to on blogs, news sites and online discussion forums.
Cyndicate provides a user interface similar to Apple’s Mail program. Users can manually sort and automatically filter articles and create “Smart Folders.” Cyndicate provides an automatic rating system that will attempt to rate new articles based on your previous likes and dislikes.
Other features include user-defined persistence of articles, labels and flags, custom article display through an HTML and CSS-based template system, and posting to social networking sites like Digg, del.icio.us and StumbleUpon.
Cyndicate requires Mac OS X v10.4.3 or later.
