Can doggcatcher be a handler for RSS links in the browser

I just purchased dogg catcher. Looks nice but it isn't acting as a handler for rss links. When I hit an RSS link either google reader or listener is popped up.

Is there something I need to configure?

Rss handler

DC will handle certain xml/rss intents but not all. The ones that aren't handled now are that way intentionally. I experimented with some of the others but it caused DC to act as a handler in a bunch of places that we wouldn't want it to.

If the rss links have the correct mime type set by the host, then DC should pop up.

"application/rss+xml" is the mime type that most publishers use.

Copy/paste

I usually long-press on a link to copy the url, and then paste it into DC (in the add feed screen).
