So, let’s talk time compression. How can you use your Mac to compress, or squeeze the time you use for daily tasks?
Turn over a new leaf. Rather, open up Leaf on your Mac, and save time on your search for news. Leaf is an elegant, inexpensive RSS reader which also syncs with Google Reader to bring news from the internet to your Mac’s screen (and Notification Center).
Leaf is different than most RSS readers for the Mac. Consider it a minimalist reader that won’t clog you down with endless preferences and configuration problems.
Is this elegant, or what?
Leaf lets you share articles with the Sharing button, save articles to Pocket for mobile use, and sync up with Google Reader.
New incoming articles show up in the OS X Mountain Lion Notification Center. Articles are easily marked as read or unread, and refreshing the RSS list is as simple as pulling on the Leaf screen (similar to how apps refresh on the iPhone and iPad).
Leaf does a full site preview, and has keyboard shortcuts to open an article in Safari, and mark articles.
That’s it. Leaf is mostly what you need in an RSS reader and nothing you don’t. There is no better way to keep up with news, information, and entertainment than using an RSS reader. It brings the latest updates in headline and summary form right to your Mac.
