I have been using NZBVortex for the past few years and have not been disappointed. The developer is attentive to his product and notifies of updates in a timely manner.

Fantastic NZB client app for Mac. Nothing else seems to come close to NZBVortex's feature set and simple usability. Easy NZB cleanup of junk files + cloud check for passworded or junk NZB's = really great client experience. No crashes, hanging, or bugs. Very lightweight and fast, recommended whole-heartedly for Mac users looking to process .nzb's / Usenet shares

It was very good when it worked, but lately it is slow and I have to force quit the app. I have 2.11.10 and it tells me I'm up to date but I see here the version is 3.4.2

Version 2.11 is a very old version of NZBVortex. Version 3 has a lot of new functionality and tweaks. It's not a free upgrade. So I can imagine that version 2 might not perform as expected. You might want to read the FAQ on our site: might be a configuration issue on your side.

Great support and timely updates along with Smart Downloading and Clean-up features make this a winner.

After a lifetime using windows. windows ten was a joke. So I bought my first Apple Mac and went looking for a program to download from usenet groups. After trying a few I found NZBVortex. This program is easy to install and connect to mu usenet groups. It is fast and handles any thing you could throw at it.
