Making The Whole Widget

The philosophy of the Macintosh? Apple makes the whole widget, and makes sure that everything simply work together.

However, it seems that even though NewsGator and NetNewsWire is now one single widget, things are not working well at all.

I've a NetNewsWire license, and was looking forward to the sync. service across Mac, Windows, and the web. However, both NewsGator online and FeedDemon (the Windows desktop client) left me disappointed. Both looked, to me, Windows-y: "packed" with features while lacking in the usability department. I didn't understand half of FeedDemon, it seems, while NewsGator online didn't even allow me to sort feeds the way I wanted them to be sorted.

NetNewsWire is still a great product — and it's not even out of beta yet. But the other parts of the widget left me cold.
