Internet news-grabber dockling.

Overview

MacReporter pioneered the desktop news reading market for Mac OS X back in 2001. It allowed users to quickly get notified when new articles were published on their favorite Web sites, and read those articles without having to navigate deep inside Web sites. It used a very simple yet unobtrusive Dock menu based interface, and remained silent when nothing was worth mentioning so that you could go on with your daily duties. Over the years, desktop news reading became a big phenomenon, seeing the rise of standards such as RSS and Atom. Since it debuted while those standards where still in their infancy, MacReporter had been using its own way of proceeding, allowing it to fetch news from just any site, not only the Web sites that provided RSS feeds, which was pretty powerful for the time being.

A new era has now begun, and it needs a next-generation MacReporter to give you full power over the ever-increasing mass of available information. Effortlessly reading news has never been so easy and productive at once.

What's new in MacReporter

An excellent app. Much more useful as a regular browsing tool than NetNewsWire, which you have to switch to manually (MacReporter is a dockling).

Is this application still available for download anywhere ? I had it for a long time and loved it. Then I had a Hard Drive crash and lost heaps of applications, including MacReporter. Now all links that used to point to MacReporter (including links in MacUpdate) draw a complete blank and result in error messages. Does MacReporter still exist ? Can anyone tell me ?

Was a great program back in its day before everyone standardized on RSS, but now it's mostly useless. A lot of plug-ins don't work anymore and it hasn't been updated in quite a while.

I downloaded and installed this twice. Could never get a window to show up in the program so could not use it. I am using OS10.3.5. Plenty of RAM and a fast internet access.

Works great with Panther! Plug-ins have been debugged and stability improved. Actually grabs more headlines from Google and other news sites than they display on their own home pages! Amazing and addictive. Can't wait for next super cool update as promised by developer.

I paid for and use this program. It works very well and it is worth the price. I tried other readers and found the 3 pane window to be more convient than constantly going to the Dock to select a new article to read. An option to use a three pain window would be great...for me.
