deep queue, quick progress

Comment by MacBedh
about The Old Reader Jul 2013

866 in the queue ahead of me when I started; 673 now, about 15 minutes later. Good to see the speed of progress. That's reassuring evidence of sufficient resources to handle the inevitable slam of the post-Reader exodus.

I really, really hope this app is worth using, once I get there -- I've tried three other alternatives so far, hated them all. Cluttered, busy, worlds away from the nice clean interface I'm looking for. Will submit review once I'm through the queue and have tried the reader.

Start the app, it prompts me for email address and password. I assume I have to sign up - but there is no help, no link to sign up, nothing. Very frustrating.
