NetNewsWire reaches version 3.2, finalises Google Reader support + ads

NewsGator web reader not quite dead yet, desktop apps still not ready

It was a pretty big deal in the RSS world when NewsGator, the company behind two of the most popular desktop feed readers, decided to drop its web app and syncing services and sync with Google Reader instead. NewsGator's web version was scheduled to go dark August 31st, but fans of the service are getting a short reprieve. The web reader will now shut down September 10th, instead. Why? Well, the...

NewsGator kills its web-based feed reader, supports Google Reader instead

NewsGator's web-based feed reader has always gotten a lot of mileage as the only supportive way to sync with the popular FeedDemon desktop reader and NetNewsWire desktop and iPhone apps. But it almost seems redundant to support your own web-based RSS product when Google Reader is so popular, and offers a comparable user experience. That's what NewsGator seems to think, anyway. The company just...

Bullitt: one NetNewsWire style to rule them all

It hasn't been all that long since I wrote about 10 excellent themes for my favorite Mac newsreader, NetNewsWire. In that time, though, I've discovered a new style that I think is the best yet. It's Bullitt, designed by Cameron Hunt of cameron.io. Cameron is also responsible for some of the most popular (and best-designed) Tumblr themes in the universe. The main selling points of Bullitt all have...

iPhone App Review: Twitterrific exercises your EDGE connection and your patience

Slick UI seems to be the norm for most 'big name' iPhone applications on the AppStore. Twitterrific easily gets the top spot in terms of having attractive UI and navigation. However, UI and usability are not synonymous. When I use my phone, I want to accomplish what I want to do quickly and easily. Unfortunately Twitterrific falls short in a few area which makes it one of the most frustrating apps...

Should software be native or web-based?

How many of the applications you use on a daily basis are web-based as opposed to locally installed native applications? For me, the answer is way more than I ever would have expected. Had you asked me this question a few years ago, I would have vehemently denied that the future of development is on the web. As much as I could see and understand the value of a ubiquitously available web-based...

As RSS becomes more and more of a vital tool for online media consumption and production with each passing day, the need for efficient and well-integrated RSS clients rings loud and true. NetNewsWire for Mac OS X is just such a client. Originally borne of (and still written and managed by) indie Mac dev Brent Simmons, it was purchased after v2.x in 2005 by NewsGator to help round out their...
