It’s like podcasts — but for reading.
NetNewsWire shows you articles from your favorite blogs and news sites and keeps track of what you’ve read.
This means you can stop going from page to page in your browser looking for new articles to read. Do it the easy way instead: let NetNewsWire bring you the news.
And, if you’ve been getting your news via Facebook — with its ads, algorithms, user tracking, outrage, and misinformation — you can switch to NetNewsWire to get news directly and more reliably from the sites you trust.
Take back control of your news. With free, high-quality, native apps for Mac and iOS.

Things People Say
It is fast, small, and remarkably stable. It looks and feels and acts exactly how a modern Mac app should — and at the same time it feels and acts exactly like the NetNewsWire of a decade ago.
I adore its simplicity, clarity, and speed.
NetNewsWire is now my go to RSS Reader of choice on the iOS. I was truly amazed how accessible this app was right out of the box on its opening day.
Everything about NNW 5 is lightning fast and I haven’t found a single crash in my use so far.
The time and hard work by Simmons and other contributors to the open-source project are apparent. NetNewsWire 5 is a thoughtfully-designed, fast app with powerful search.
NetNewsWire coming back to the scene is an important and notable step for the revival of the RSS ecosystem as we once knew it.
