Usenet NNTP Newsreader. Should be fast and easy.
Please be patient, it's still under development, but right now i am using it for myself, so i thought maybe the community can profit from it. If you have any bugs, feel free to contact me, i'll try to fix them asap :)

Okay guys, some changes:
Currently I have absolutely no time to work on that app, but I would appreciate every help or ideas or anybody who wants to play around and carry the idea of an easy and simple to use newsreader to the world. There is a repo now where you can play around with the source. Just mail me and give me a pull request if you have any idea on how to make things better :)

I've tried not to use the apache.org.nntp package, it's all done by hand.

Crashes Nice app but constantly crashes! Takes forever to load anything because it continually crashes! I'll persist for a day or two then uninstall and go elsewhere!

Only works on free servers Only works if you don't need your name or password. Even then, I tried to connect two of the only free servers that I know of and it was unable to connect. Far as I can tell, it can only connect to the server already set up and it takes forever actually bring up a document.

Nice idea but Needs work (and developer needs time to work on it) Loads the news room threads fast, I like that part, messages are threaded - nice, but some did not load, just showed ”loading” as the message title. It did crash when loading the another news room from the same server.

Can do better As a first stab at a threaded Usenet news reader it's ok. It needs a lot of work before it becomes a viable alternative to groundhog newsreader. Keep at it you'll get there.
