Editors' Review

The laundry list of problems with this faulty URL database is long, but the primary one is the inability to access the links. Hornsoft Online Newspaper installs without a hitch, but that's the last thing that works without trouble. The program failed to load more often than not, and it took quite a while to appear when it would display. The basic interface's few elements weren't intuitive to use. Hornsoft Online Newspaper doesn't deliver headlines like a feed reader. Instead it just provides links to online newspapers.

Our tests found one failure after another. There's a long list of newspapers, but the scroll bar refused to move past the first 20. The columnar display listed each newspaper name, country, and city, but the sort option failed. The pull-down menu-filter options and search fields similarly failed. The list of newspapers didn't change, and we couldn't scroll through items beyond what appeared in the default menu. Clicking a link should open a window to read the newspapers online, but often did nothing.

The program folder contained a link to the program and a link to the publisher's online newspaper site. The site appeared to work fine, but offered no guidance or information about the desktop version. Skip this faulty program, which doesn't work well and doesn't deliver the news. You're better off bookmarking your favorite online news sites.
