OSXnews is a small, fast usenet newsreader for OS X. It is designed to look and behave like Apple's Mail program and uses it for all mail functions. It also uses the Webcore engine used in Safari to display messages. It is actively being developed and the current version supports many (though not all ) features people expect in a newsreader. OSXnews is a Universal Application and works well on the new Intel Macs. It also has some support for binary posts. At the moment this is limited to single part yEnc posts. Full support is expected in upcoming versions.

It looks like this app is no longer supported. And it does not function in OSX Lion. A pity, because it has a nice interface.

This app looks great, but won't list anything for my University of Phoenix newsgroups. I made sure that all of my information is correct, it just won't show anything at all.

Help, developer!

Very nice interface; if you like Mail, you will like this.

BUT, it doesn't handle article threading very well. I had all sorts of posts that should have been in the same thread strewn throughout.

Also, the second time I ran it when I clicked on the group I subscribed to the messages showed up briefly, and then disappeared, I couldn't get them back.

It looks nice, but it still needs some work.

This software seems to work just fine on 1.4.4. No crashes, very easy to setup, and slim size.

I wish there were a filter to just show articles with the relevant title.

Excellent piece of software!

Very nice interface, easy to use. Does a good job with article threading. I look forward to when it gains more features, such as killfiles and filters. If your newsreading needs are basic, this app is a very good choice.

I love its simple and intuitive interface, but I have one problem with it; it doesn't seem to have an option to change the NTTP port number.

Looks good to me. Works fast and seems to be reliable. Far more intuitive that the ugly "MacSoup"... ;-)

Might need some additional possibilities to manage the news, but let's wait and see...

Binaries come through as text in the preview pane.

The instructions say to go to the Newsgroup menu and choose list. Then a list is supposed to appear - but it doesn't. The bar with the blue and white stripes just stays motionless.
So nothing happens. Pity: I like the interface.

Thanks for the comment, I will update the instructions. What you need to do i select the account you want to see the list for from the pull down menu (under the blue bar) and then click get groups.
