Current Version: 2.0.2

InterNews is a reasonably good newsreader that supports multithreading that is no longer under development, but quite functional nonetheless. InterNews uses a three-paned window and allows you to keep multiple sets of group lists in a single user file. It's slower and less feature-filled than the various NewsWatchers, however. Version 2.0.2 is a bug-fix release.

User Reviews

"I rather enjoyed the speed and accuracy of InterNews. It is a stable and fast-working program. The architecture is simple but fine, except that one cannot have the option of viewing the authors as well as the article subjects. I prefer to know "who" wrote what, before the file loads into the InterNews window."
—Gerrit K Deppe

"I like InterNews because it presents all the information you need in a single pane: groups, subjects, and articles. It doesn't permit you to send a copy of your replies to the author as well as the group, and I've recently (1999) had trouble getting it to rebuild its news group listing. The author has written to me to say that he has ceased development, so this is, unfortunately, a dead product. :-("
—Kurt Tappe

Also, if you have an older Mac, be sure to check out the "Classic" applications page for more options.

Finally, take a look at ALEMIA if you think you know that name of an application, but aren't quite sure.

Of Note . . .

No, I don't accept reviews anymore for these older applications. With the creation of this page in the Orchard's late 2005 redesign, I only accept reviews for currently-developed applications that work on Mac OS X (or later....whatever that might be!!).
