[prMac.com] Scottsdale, Arizona - Cynical Peak Software announces the update of Cyndicate 1.2, their next generation RSS/Atom aggregator and content management application for Mac OS X. Version 1.2 brings better performance and adds a number of new features to enhance the user experience.

By treating the article as the base unit instead the feed itself, users have more flexibility performing actions around them with finer granularity.

Cyndicate includes many features which help set it apart from other news readers. Users are able to manually sort and automatically filter articles into folders or create smart folders. Cyndicate will further aid the user by automatically rating new content based on previous likes and dislikes. Simply rate an existing article and new articles will be rated based on their content.

* Performance has been greatly improved for some scenarios.
