"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.

Ratings and Reviews
I use this app every day but
I use this app every day to keep track off all sorts and it's just wonderful however the only thing from keeping me from a 5 star review is being able to only have it on one or all windows. What would be awesome is if you can choose which windows you have it on... i.e. two out of five...
This review is probably unfair ...
… because I have not learned how to use RSS so I’m probably not the best person to give a review. However, it seems to work OK and I’ve managed to get the RSS feed I think I need but time will tell if I have found the right approach
Only US Newsflow
I bought this app as I need regular financial updates on what is happening in the market, unfortunatelyit only feeds news from USA Today, no British news. Don’t buy if you require British news.
Developer Response ,
You can add any of your favourite RSS news feed, including British financial new sources. The built-in default feeds are just examples.
Please contact our support if you need help to find and add RSS feeds.
