Stop clicking bookmarks — let NetNewsWire Lite show you what’s new in your favorite websites.

NetNewsWire Lite reads RSS and Atom feeds and shows you what articles you haven’t read so you can read them right there, in the app.

You can go through all your news just by hitting the space bar — it’s easy. Read the original web page just by clicking a link or hitting the right-arrow key.

When you find something to save or share, you can email a link, save to Instapaper, or send to another app (such as Delibar, Twitter for Mac, VoodooPad, MarsEdit, and more).

Adding feeds is easy — most of the time NetNewsWire Lite can find a feed for a website for you, so you don’t have to hunt. And you can add a feed to NetNewsWire Lite directly from Safari.

NetNewsWire Lite supports authenticated feeds too, for any in-house and private feeds.

And the app is fast and light, easy-to-navigate, with just the features you need to be able to read your news.

No Google Reader sync - The lack of Google Reader sync, which has been a core feature of NNW for at least 2 years, was a deal-breaker. I installed the app, then deleted it, going back to the non-app store version I've been using for 2 years. NNW used to be one of the best - now, even the beta version of Reeder works better and has a more intuitive interface.

Great UI, Useless Without Google Reader Sync - This is a beautiful app. It's a tremendous improvement over the old NetNewsWire, but the only reason I (and I suspect most people) ever used NetNewsWire was that it was a great app for managing my Google Reader feeds. Google's online web app is really nasty and cluttered, so NetNewsWire was a welcome relief. Unfortunately the sync has been stripped from this version, making it nearly useless. To be fair, it does have an "Import Feeds" option, which supports import from OPML, but that requires painful manual organization and constant re-importing every time you want to add a few new feeds that were added in another app or on a different device. If they add Google Sync back in, it'll be just magical. Until then, it's just a fun little toy.

Installed it - then uninstalled it - Like everyone else, lack of gogle reader sync is a break for me. For all those who think this is an unreasonable review - the previous 'lite' version did allow synce with google reader hence the low score.

What happened? - Google Sync is a core function of why we use NetNewsWire. Why is it removed now?

Great, but lack of sync detracts - This is a great RSS reader, and it's a great improvement over the last version. I especially like the amount of customization options for articles. However, the lack of syncing that like the previous versions really detracts from the experience. I don't want an article I read on my iPhone or iPad show up as unread on my Mac, or vice versa. Despite this, it's still an excellent program.

4 stars because doesn`t share nor send the feed content email - This is the best RSS reader. I really recomend. Pin my suggestion to improve it: #1 to share the Feed using tweeter, Facebook etc... this is a basic feature that is missing. #2 send the feed content by email.. in this current version is send only the URL.
