NetNewsWire for Macintosh
Looking for an easy-to-use RSS and Atom reader for your Mac? You’ve found it! The Eddy award-winning NetNewsWire has a familiar three-paned interface and can fetch and display news from millions of different websites and weblogs.
3.3.2 requires Mac OS X 10.6, and runs on 10.7 and 10.8.
3.2.15 is the final version to support PowerPC Macs and OS X 10.5.8.
NetNewsWire is free, supported by ads that appear in the lower-left hand corner of the window. If you’d like to remove those ads, you can purchase a license for $14.95 at any time. Choose Buy NetNewsWire from the NetNewsWire menu (in the menu bar, right next to the Apple menu). But you don’t have to — you can use NetNewsWire for free.
