I love the look and feel of NewsBlur, but I have to say, after being used to real-time updates with Google Reader, even the paid version of NewsBlur doesn’t update often enough for my liking.
The servers are very overloaded right now. This is not representative of the usual performance.
Ok, so this is what I was wondering. I wasn’t sure if the refresh limit was for real or if I just didn’t understand what the owner was getting at by refreshes. That will probably be a make it or break it for me. I’m constantly checking my though the day.
But I thought it said on the front page that site refreshes a day are limited? 1 per day if you are a free user, and up to 10x that if you are a paid user? Am I reading that wrong? Having my feeds not update though the day is the main thing that would keep me from joining.
I think it might be more like “once per hour” for free users, and basically whenever you want if you’re a paid user. And if a paid user subscribes to a feed, the faster updating will benefit all non-paid users for that feed as well.
Right now, nothing’s really happening at all, though. I can access only a few of my feeds, but if I read something, it comes right back as unread. I’m chalking this up to forced-productivity thanks to google’s little exodus-DDOS (exoddos??) on all alt RSS readers
I thought it said once a day for free users as well. If it’s once a minute, or even hour, I think I could live with that. I won’t delete my account just yet, and give the admins/servers time to deal with the spike in users and adjust accordingly.
That’s how I feel. It doesn’t have to be instant, but I don’t want to have to wait 24 hours for something to update. But I may just have to deal since google is screwing the pooch like this.
