Apparently Macworld has done a review of NewsFire for their June 2005 issue and has given it 4 stars. Again, I am delighted – these reviews are really positive for a 1.0 release. NewsFire has a huge amount of potential and things will only improve in the coming months. Macworld’s buying advice:
“NewsFire 1.0 is an excellent application and I highly recommend it. It’s a great value compared to other RSS readers in its category, and I expect that it will only continue to improve.”
MacUser UK has reviewed NewsFire for their March issue and, much to my delight, they’ve given it 5 stars (or rather, 5 somethings – mouse-human hybrids I think). Check out the full review for sure. Here’s a brief excerpt:
“Every now and then you come across a piece of software that subtly shifts the way things work. That’s when you wonder why no one thought of it before… Do we have any complaints? In a word, no. This is feed-reading the way it should be…”
I’ve also heard that NewsFire will be mentioned in the upcoming Macworld (US) issue, not reviewed but in one of the other sections. Be sure to check that issue out when it hits newsstands.
