3.8.4

Display RSS news feeds on your desktop.

Overview

NewsBar is built with a fresh concept: news feeds delivered with a smooth animation, right to your desktop with automatic iCloud sync across all Apple devices. Converts plain old RSS feeds into a live news stream with keyword watching and alerts. Works fine without Google Reader, syncing with Feedly.

All of your RSS feeds continuously appear on the selected side of your display, or in a regular window. NewsBar is like having your own, personal news agency. You don't have to waste your time checking webpages - NewsBar will show you what's going on.

No trial. No buy. No reviews so far. No buy. Sometimes life is simple, eh? :)

This app is like crash central under Sierra. It's a good looking newsreader, but totally hopeless for bugs and stability. It hasn't been updated in over a year according to the app store and I suspect it has been abandoned.

The same old thing. I had to force quit the new version because it stalled and wouldn't start again.

NEWSBAR could take a lesson from Newsflow which is faster and better. It is a quality app, Anyone that buys Newsbar wastes their money.

This version is worse than the other versions. It is slow and the GUI is slow. The whole thing is miserable. The developers pay no attention at all to this misbehavior of this app. They go on their merrily way as if we here are suckers. I wish i could give it no stars.

For me Version 3.6.5 crashes immediately in Yosemite 10.10.1, Appears for a split second in the dock then nothing. Works fine on my iMac with Lion installed.

The Beachballs onYosemite are driving me crazy! This app was good for awhile and now it is useless. A candidate for the trash. 1/2 a star for a miserable experience,

I used to really like NewsBar but under Mavericks it's been reduced to a bug laden mess. It fails to remember appearance preferences and the window keeps disappearing until you quit the app and start again. It has been like this since the day I installed Mavericks and the latest update to NewsBar has changed nothing. Unfortunately it's unusable under Mavericks.

I have been using NewsBar for a while, and it has been constantly evolving since then. I like it!
