Bad news: Black Pixel is shutting down NNW. Good news: Brent Simmons, the original developer, is going to take it over again! Will be free and open-source. See Brent's blog post here http://inessential.com/2018/08/31/netnewswire_comes_home

The slide of this developer's application aren't just with NNW3->4. My copy of V2 stopped working all of a sudden, most likely because they turned off the license server for it. They can't generate license keys for v2 any more, so my $20 is gone. I bought some thing that they orphaned, possibly intentionally and require that I pay to upgrade it to get the same function back. This bodes ill for this developer. I'm steering clear of these guys and all they do.

There are so many things missing in NNW4 versus 3. I keep trying to go to 4, but get so frustrated with the way feeds are sorted, how many are refreshed at once, how the panes are laid out, etc. etc. etc. Again and again, that leads me back to NNW3.

NetNewsWire is a terrific application! Five Stars now that it has a companion iPhone Application that it syncs with. … They sync service is free! I love both applications!

The non-Beta v4 has been out for a couple days - available on the MAS and via BlackPixel's site. I'm liking it. They provide in-house sync though I haven't tried it. Their own iOS app must be used.

As others have said, a major step backwards. The UI was "refreshed" to a crappy non-standard Mac app standard. A few examples: it doesn't use the system toolbar API, it places toolbar icons (without option of text under icon) in window title bar, and it's missing a File menu. I have a feeling whomever "developed" v4 is not originally a Mac developer, but rather one of the those "I use a Mac just because I wanted to start iOS development" people. To top it off, it looks like a crappy copy of ReadKit now. I like ReadKit, but NetNewsWire v1-3 catered to a different audience; the original Mac "Pro" user. Too bad Black Pixel abandoned this audience.

A serious step back compared to the last version. The UI was slightly refreshed, but a number of features (like Smart Folders) were lost in the way.

Still using version 3.2.15. Black Pearl didn't help by adding junk to it after buying the company a few years ago.

Have been using NetNewsWire for quite awhile, and am very happy with it. I have tried many others and NetNewsWire works the best in my opinion. Fast and clean!
