NewsFire 1.3 (v52) Beta

NewsFire 1.3 (v52) is now available for download. This release sees the addition of a new search feed panel that makes it very straightforward for even the novice user to add custom search feeds for common search engines and content sites.

Also, if there is a search site that publishes in RSS/Atom that would be widely useful and that you think should be added, please leave a comment.

Let me highlight a related shortcut that may not be well-known. In addition to the menu shortcuts, you can use modifier keys and the “+” add button to create smart feeds, search feeds, and groups. Clicking the ‘+’ while pressing ‘option’ brings up the smart feed creation panel. Similarly, ‘control’ brings up the search feed creation panel and ‘shift’ brings up the group creation panel. These modifiers are consistent with their menu equivalents.

Really digging NewsFire, with each new build of 1.3 you’re adding a whole new feature instead of just bug fixes or anything like that, it’s quite nice. I was hoping that perhaps you could add functionality such as the ability to click “xx more…” and then, similar to spotlight, it’d show all of the rest of the articles with a “Show Top 5 Results” to collapse it back up. I don’t know if this is still the case, but back in NewsFire 1.2 whenever I’d expand a lot of feeds that had a lot of articles in them some of the articles would be pushed out of the boundaries and I couldn’t get to them. It was quite weird, but you may have fixed that, however I think it’d still be nice. Are there plans for video support for the video podcasts? I’m really hoping there will be, I’m looking forward to switching to NewsFire from iTunes because of how slowly it renders and plays video. Keep up the great work, I’m loving how this program is shaping up. Definitely worth the money.


Hi, Nice work on v52. Here are a couple search sites with feeds that I am currently using for my job search:



They both search the other job boards for matching jobs. They require you to use a zip code as part of the search – I don’t know how that would fit in to NewsFire.
