If it isn't obvious, it's a Windows application. Not for OS X.

Isn't it just a 7-day trail key? And without the search service after 7 days, the software is almost useless.

While I can't speak for their Usenet search service, I bought a key for this app, a few years ago.

It's arguably the best one that there is for these services, under a Windows based PC!

It's always updated and supported, without fail. Lifetime paid key. Can't go wrong.

i prefer alt.binz application

i used to use newsbin, but cant remember why i switched like 10 yrs ago.

and no, the app wouldnt be useless without their search - there are plenty of other (better) sources for .NZB files

Uh no the software isn't worthless without the search crap. I've used this app for a decade after buying a key for $15. This is an amazing deal even without search.

The one bad thing is the guys who make it are idiots who don't get how people use thier software. They made so many stupid ass choices over the years I run a old ass version from probably 6 yrs ago.

Link to my older version of the app that I love and still use. It is not cracked just legit normal install exe.

I find it better than newsleecher. But, for the convenience of their search which comes out to $30 or $35 a month ... you're saving yourself a lot of time in not having to 'search' other sources for the nzbs, etc.

I'm curious as to what options you don't like in it? I can't think of much in it that seems like a particularly bad idea.

It eats a lot of memory if you browse vast headers (makes sense), but otherwise it's pretty configurable, as far as trying to block spam and reassembly/extraction of binaries, etc.

Honestly, I don't browse Usenet much anymore, but still.

ha, I'm using one from 2007! Could you elaborate on the stupid ass choices? Smilie I went ahead and got a key but not sure I care to use it.

A question for anyone: I usually use Sabnzbd but lately Sab cant finish some stuff I'm grabbing. When I try the same nzb in newbin, it works fine after repairing with the par2 files. I recently switched usenet providers but have the same servers active in both sab and newsbin. Confused Any ideas what the problem is?

It had something to do with the little things. Like say column layout, and how it now bunches up the entire download into one thing. Again this was years ago I haven't used updated versions for years so who knows what they've done to it. But I went to forums and let them know some of their changes make zero sense. They were like whatever.

There was like 5 things the newer version did that was just plain dumb.

Either way it's free and its actually useful app so. Good stuff.

one word: sabnzbd dot org (i lied... actuall 3 words Smilie

It's freeware and better than anything you've ever used. Cross-platform.
