Ratings and Reviews
Posting not working
Switching apps causes all entered text to disappear
Makes it hard to set up servers and connections. Not user-friendly, cannot recommend.
Only usenet reader app on iPhone
I think this software is great and the bugs with connecting to news servers have been fixed in this new version and it works fairly stable. It is a little difficult to use for instance if you want to go to the next and previous posts you have to slide your finger across the screen as opposed to pressing a single button to go forward and back. That's only a minor setback though. Also there should be an option to delete read posts without having to reconnect to your newsserver in order to process it. It would also be nice if it supported SSL and multiple connections to speed up header downloads. Other than those minor things it has everything I was looking for.
