Editors' Review

Unison 2 is a major update for this popular Usenet client, providing a much more modern interface to access one of the oldest and most arcane corners of the Internet.

Fans of Usenet typically come in search of discussion groups and binary downloads, and Unison's all-new, iTunes-style interface makes navigation easy, with a friendly directory system, threaded messages, and an immensely useful search bar. And given that downloads are a priority for so many Usenet users, Unison also has some thoughtful integrated features, like audio preview, automatic unarchiving (with unRAR and unPAR), and automatic skipping of unneeded files. Unison hasn't gotten everything perfect yet (which is perhaps inevitable when venturing into the secret caves of Usenet). For example, you still can't toggle binaries as read. But some problems, such as the inability to import preferences, have been rectified quickly in early updates.

Many Usenet users may be happy staying with their current clients, but if you're new to Usenet or looking for a more elegant way to get around, Unison is a breath of fresh air. The seven-day trial version also offers a 24-hour trial of Unison Access, if you don't already have Usenet access through your ISP.

What's new in version 2.2
Unison -- our excellent OS X app for accessing Usenet Newsgroups and the many wonders and mysteries contained within -- has reached the end of its road after years of faithful service. Unison 2.2 adds the #1 feature request for Unison: multi-connection downloads for much faster transfers. It also adds a lot more Retina assets for more beautiful browsing on newer machines, and fixes many little bugs and quirks.
