I'm reluctant to write as bad a review as this product deserves, lest I sound like I'm a competitor. I'm not. I'm a lawyer and I live in Alaska. I was looking for an efficient way to get some of the information I pull in from all over the world, mainly RSS feeds. I've been looking to find one that will read them to me while I did other things. So, sucker that I am, sight unseen, I purchased this product and began to use it. It has been nothing but disappointing. I tried hard to make it work, but it has not lasted longer than a minute or two without crashing. My mac applications rarely crash. I go months without a crash. You almost have to try to write the program so that it crashes regularly using the world's most stable operating system.
If this company has any integrity at all, it should refund the purchase price to users. It is the only way these people can continue to have fait their integrity is more reliable than their incompetent product.

Thank you. I downloaded new version, and the difference is like night and day. The program works as advertised, and it works well. I populated it with my feeds from Apple Mail, and enjoy listening to them while I do other things. I expect that News Anchor will become part of my daily routine.

Congratulations and thanks for the improvement. I have gone from a disgruntled to a satisfied customer (a gruntled customer?).

A few suggestions for improvements:
1. Alternate voices and pictures for the Anchor;
2. The ability to search for RSS feeds;
3. The ability to play individual feeds;
4. The ability to select individual stories from feeds and play only them.
