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!

Ten minutes into the trial period of Usenetic I decided to purchase. It's that good. I've been using newsreaders for almost thirty years and currently vacillate between Unison and Hogwasher. The Usenetic interface is clean and efficient. What clinched my purchase was MegaSearch. My experience of global Usenet searches with other clients has been negative. Too many false hits including too many malicious fakes. Usenetic uses its own mammoth search database and claims ten years' retention, which I can well believe. Within seconds I'd found and downloaded ancient binaries that I thought lost forever. Astonishing. You pay for use of MegaSearch. One year is included in the Usenetic purchase price, and after that it's about ten euro per year. If you're a heavy Usenet user, Usenetic with MegaSearch is a no-brainer. The feature set is amazing. NZB implementation and compilation of files works like a charm, with plenty of visual feedback on progress. I only wish I'd found this software earlier.

This is exactly what macOS has been needing for a long time - Unison was awesome but this is way way better in my opinion. Fantastic piece of software and it's really just getting started.

I wonder whether the developer stopped working on this application (and the database and/or search engine behind it). Since one or two months the search results are becoming more and more incomplete.

Been using Usenetic for about a year now. Takes a bit of getting used to since it is search-based, and not browse-based (as are the major alternatives). However, once I got used to performing a search as the basis for every action, I quickly began to appreciate the power of this application. Usenetic does everything a traditional browse-based Usenet application does (and extends simple browsing by allowing you to browse files in multiple newsgroups at the same time), and in addition, allows you to slice and dice the results you see by implementing powerful search filters (similar in power to Google search terms). In short, Usenetic is an outstanding newsgroup browser and a powerful tool for mac users who wish to access Usenet newsgroups.. Definitely worth trying out.

This application will not be free once it gets out of its beta state (probably in January 2018). Unfortunately the developer is not telling us what the price will be.

This is a great tool to download and search/browse newsgroups.
My first thoughts were, wow newsleecher on the Mac.

It is blazing fast and the downloads I did were flawless.

Searching newsgroups is very easy with a lot of options.
The app also support NZB files extremely well.

Although the app is rather new and in beta, I did not experience any issues at all.

Great job and very promising.
