NewsFire 1.6

RSS feed readers are ten-a-penny but Newsfire differs from most of the competition by offering both style and content. The look of the program will be familiar to iChat users as the latest feed posts move to the top of the list using a similar style of animation.

Simplicity is the order of the day with NewsFire leaving you free to concentrate on reading the feeds you have subscribed to. But this does not means that the program is lacking in features. Feeds and posts can be organised using smartgroups and you can create your own feeds by building up custom rules to ensure that only the most relevant content is displayed.

Spotlight integration means that it is possible to quickly track down posts relating to a particular keyword and these searches can be saved as smart folders. There are no options for archiving posts and a synchronisation feature is also lacking, but it's hard not to be taken in by the program.

Try out NewsFire for just a short time and you’re sure to be drawn in by the aesthetic appeal of the program. Thankfully, making the move from your existing aggregator to NewsFire is a simple process as you can simply import OPML files.
