Description

Rock your Desktop with NewsBar - the top selling iCloud newsreader since 2011!

News Reading Crafted to Perfection! NewsBar is built with a fresh concept: news feeds delivered with a smooth animation, right to your desktop with automatic iCloud sync across all macOS and iOS Apple devices. Converts any RSS and Twitter feeds into a realtime live news stream with categories, keyword watching and notification alerts even on the go with NewsBar iOS.

All of your favourite RSS and Twitter feeds continuously appear on the selected side of your display or in a regular window. NewsBar is like having your own, personal news agency. You don't have to waste your time checking webpages: NewsBar will show you what's going on - right now.

No delays, no waiting: stories appear right on your display, just as they are published. You can easily organize, read, follow, mark, filter and search news from your favorite feeds. Stories are read directly from RSS and Twitter sources without delay. NewsBar is probably the fastest RSS reader in the world.

There is no need to register any account or login into any service, news reading with NewsBar is simple, safe and private.

"If you’re looking for something a bit different in your RSS reader, I really recommend giving NewsBar a try, it’s a surprisingly powerful and enjoyable little app." - Mac Appstorm

Important: NewsBar is NOT a Twitter client. It's just an additional feature wich allows to read selected Twitter feeds from sources where RSS not available. Twitter feeds should be added manually.

Customer Reviews

Convenient With Good Service & Updates

I’ve been using this app for years and love it! Very convenient and the developer offers good customer service and keeps the product updated. NewsBar is my desktop UI for RSS feeds and Twitter. It keeps me updated on the technology and business subjects relevent to my work.

A Few Features and it Would be Perfect

It would be really helpful to be able to push read notifications out of the feed.

Great App and Great Support

Had an issue with the app crashing after the upgrade to 3.8.3 on OSX 10.6.8. Contacted the developer, who was very responsive, and the problem was fixed the next day. Great App and Great Support.
