News File Grabber

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Nov 8, 2008

Designed as an integrated Usenet reader for accessing a variety of file types, News File Grabber is easy to use and quick to master. It has a nicely designed, easy-on-the-eyes interface that's not cluttered with too many buttons and panes, as many newsreaders are. Setup is simple, and the app performs quickly and efficiently in the background, whether it's downloading text, video, audio, or photo files.

News File Grabber ran very quickly in our tests, even when downloading multiple threads and large media files. Specifying downloads to save and managing those files is very simple with News File Grabber, as is choosing and deleting groups, and making and forwarding posts. The nag screen that appears at the beginning of launch during the demo period is only a minor annoyance. Whether or not you're a novice, you'll find plenty to like with this user-friendly newsreader.
