Auntie is a freeware BBC News ticker for Mac OS X. It has no relationship to the (apparently no longer supported) Mac OS 7 program of the same name, other than having the same function. Many aspects of the ticker are configurable, including font, color, opacity, and ticker speed. Clicking on a scrolling headline will take you to the associated Web page. Headlines are also listed in a dock menu to jump to any one of them. Auntie is provided free of charge because you really ought to pay attention to what's going on in the world.

An excellent little app! One can keep the 'ticker tape' of headlines running on desktop, click on and expand any news item; or one can access a drop menu of all Auntie's stories, to choose at random. I have never had a problem with any feature AND it works just fine on my Intel Mac. Plus it's FREE!!! Many thanks to the developer.

Very cool little software. Would be better if you could make it run in the menu bar.

What program should the download be opened in?
Many thanks,
