I just discovered this today and purchased. Been using NZBVortex 3 but I really like the interface of Usenetic.

best usenet application for Mac. Easiest once your server is entered into preferences, couldn't add much that I am wishing to add to the app.

I purchased Usenetic a year ago and now they want 10Euros/year to use the search feature. That's not mentioned in the original purchase price, which is why I dropped a star . All in all, ~ $11/year for Usenet access isn't to bad. I'll probably drop my other news provider ($8/mo) given how useful MegaSearch is with Usenetic.

Wow! I learned only today (!) there was a new Usenet newsreader on Mac!
It's more than 30 years I do Usenet and I used the FIRST EVER GRAPHIC NEWSREADER ON NeXT computer!!!
I was delighted with it but right now don't remember the name! (I'm sure it's in some forgotten folder somewhere in my brain…)
Then, years after, was Unison but right now it always finish to get stuck in some inferno!
So I'm delighted to know there is an alternative and post this even before trying it!!!!!
Because I'm sure it's THE thing!
