The easiest way to get the latest news is via a RSS reader and there are many to choose from out there. GSA News Reader is one of the options that focuses on simplicity and ease of use, providing a straightforward application for getting updates from both RSS feeds and regular websites.
When launching GSA News Reader for the first time, you are prompted to choose one of the predefined feeds. The application displays a list of RSS feeds from various domains, ranging from business pages to entertainment feeds and other subjects, such as music, cars or technology.
Aside from the predefined links, GSA News Reader can handle any RSS feed or website address. In other words, you can populate your headline list with other URLs, as you please. The content of the clipboard is automatically detected by the application, so all that is left for you to do is assign a relevant name to the new entry.
For each RSS feed, GSA News Reader enables you to set the checking time interval. Moreover, you can configure the application to ignore updates that include certain words, thus creating custom exceptions.
As you add more and more links to the reader, your headline list grows bigger and bigger. GSA News Reader features tag-based searching, which enables you to quickly find the link you are looking for. There are four predefined tags but you are free to add as many as you please. Organizing feeds in different categories from the start would also help you find certain feeds, and would definitely add to the application’s value.
As expected with such an application, GSA News Reader displays updates and changes it detects in a popup window, playing a sound notification to keep you up-to-date with your favorite news. While it can be further improved to meet users’ requirements, it is a fact that this application delivers an easy way to get the latest news.

A useful newsreader and NZB file downloader that was especially designed in order to provide a simple means of getting the needed news and files
While social media platforms evolved in the past year, many still prefer the classics such as Usenet. Working in a similar manner as Facebook, Reddit or Twitter, Usenet used to be one of the most popular platforms where people could join groups on a full range of topics. Then again, Usenet is not exactly easy to use and your best bet in this case would be to rely on a client, such as SABnzbd.
After a quick installation, the tool opens the interface in your default browser where you should take the time to configure the server. Luckily, the app comes with a wizard that guides you through the process. In case the server simply does not start, then you should check whether the port recommended is being used by another application or service.
Once you are passed the configuration, the app should not give you any troubles regardless of whether you want to upload or download content. Adding a NZB file can be done with dragging and dropping the file, whereas uploading entails attaching the file. The tool lets you add names, passwords, categories – which you can customize further from the Settings – , set priorities, specify the type of post processing and even add scripts, if you are using them.
The advantage the tool brings to the table is that, once correctly configured, most operations can be automated. Even if you close your browser, the app doesn't shut down, but rather continues to run in the background and option that can simplify things a lot.
All in all, SABnzbd is a specialized tool that packs numerous advanced and basic features to suit any needs and preferences. In case you rely on Usenet for your news feeds, then perhaps you can consider giving the application a try.

This application allows you to specify your desired servers so you can download files from Usenet newsgroups at a scheduled time
Newsbin Pro provides you with a feature-packed news reading tool that can be used for downloading and decoding posts from Usenet groups. Although nowadays it has a diminished importance with respect to forums and blogs, Usenet remains one of the oldest and widely used communication systems, where users can find files of all types and download them to their computer.
Newsbin Pro can access Usenet newsgroups and assist you in finding exactly what you are looking for. Its speed depends directly on your high bandwidth Internet connection and the system capabilities, with support for multiple simultaneous connections to the news servers.
As expected, an account with a Usenet news server is required in order to make the application work. The main interface is split into two separate panes, one for exploring the search results and the other for viewing the download queue.
The integrated Usenet Search function allows you to search newsgroups that include large volumes of binary content. Multi-part posts are automatically re-assembled, while the ‘AutoPAR’ feature helps you grab RAR archives posted with PAR2 files, repairs damaged files and replaces missing ones. Furthermore, the application displays downloaded images as you download them.
Newsbin Pro enables you to assign posts to different categories and even publish new messages containing requests, text or files. It comes with advanced organization options, allowing you to mark and delete posts, create categories and manage groups.
The advanced filtering capabilities and the regular expressions support are designed to help you quickly find the desired post, while the NZB processing features allow you to quickly initiate the download process. The information exchange can be encrypted using the SSL certificate, provided the news server supports it.
Download prioritization, automatic download mode, download management options, newsgroup header updates and interface customization options are some of the other advantages that this application has to offer.
Considering the above, Newsbin Pro can be considered a reliable news client that provides quick access to the vast resources of the Usenet network. The split file processing options, together with the complex filtering options make it a worth-having tool for those who are still downloading from Usenet.

Read CNN articles directly from your desktop with this news reading application that features all the categories in a simple interface
Nowadays, we get most of our news from the Internet, which is the reason why all the major publications and TV station also strive to have a strong online presence. Most news sites are usually well-designed and easy to browse, but if for any reason you don’t like reading the news in your browser, you can try a feed reading app.
One relevant example is News Reader for CNN.
The Windows 10 application has a very simple design, but one that is certainly less distracting than going directly to cnn.com. It’s not that there’s anything wrong with the platform, just that on any news website’s front page you will usually get highlights that are meant to capture your interest, smaller bits from every category and, of course, ads, none of these were put there to help you focus.
News Reader for CNN also has ads (unless you choose to remove them for a cost), but displays its news in either a grid or list view. Like on any contemporary website, titles are accompanied by photos and short descriptions, so it will be very easy to scroll through these items until something captures your interest.
Or, if you want to read all the latest articles, you can just click on the first one and then move to the next news piece without having to go back in the feed. You can choose to browse only certain categories (like U.S. Politics, Business, Entertainment, Sport, basically the same categories that you can find on CNN’s website). Also, you can choose between a light and dark theme for the app.
Probably the most useful feature is the program’s live tile support; this means that, after you pin News Feed for CNN to Start, its corresponding tile (that is also adjustable in size) will act as a mini-news feed (with text and images) every time you access the Start menu.
Despite the fact that the people who get their daily information from sources other than CNN probably won’t find this tool very useful, News Reader for CNN is still a well-designed tool that can make news reading more pleasant.
