This free RSS client's gorgeous Finder-styled interface, speedy operation, and user-friendly interface make it a joy to sift through loads of news feeds. NewsMac is a model citizen when it comes to its design and layout, thanks to the clean exterior and familiar toolbar. NewsMac comes loaded with a healthy grab bag of news freeds already configured, but adding your own custom channels also is very easy. We appreciate that NewsMac lets you sync news articles with your iPod or Palm-based PDA. We wished, however, that you could view articles from directly within the application, rather than having to switch to a Web browser. Overall, NewsMac is an elegant and worthy newsreader for both pros and newbies.
