Bottom Line

If you currently use an RSS reader and want to see what else is out there, it's definitely worth your time to export your feeds to an OPML file and give Newzie a whirl.

Would you buy this?

Newzie serves up your RSS feeds and more in a good-looking, easy-to-use tabbed interface.

It faces much competition from other good, free news readers, but Newzie easily imports feeds from other programs and is worth trying out.

When you first start out, you can select feeds from a Newzie list, monitor Internet Explorer favourites, or import feeds from an existing OPML file. OPML files are the standard for importing and exporting precious feed lists, and we were able to import ours into Newzie very quickly.

Newzie preserved our folders and feed organisation for its Tree view of feeds, and also offers a List view that lists colour-coded feeds according to those last updated. You can select a particular feed or folder to view it on a tabbed-display to the right of the feed list, which sits in a bar on the left side of the window.

You can also view new posts in an easily digestible slideshow view, or opt for a minimised 'Today' panel. Mouseover a post in the Today panel for a description, or click it to bring up the post in your browser.

In the regular program interface, selecting a particular post from a feed view brings it up in its own tab. Or you can right-click the post and select an option to view it in your web browser.

Newzie sports a number of other options, such as a Post Sweeper that can get rid of old posts according to your specifications, or an option to monitor non-RSS web pages for changes.

Microsoft Office 365/HP Spectre x360

Microsoft Office continues to make a student’s life that little bit easier by offering reliable, easy to use, time-saving functionality, while continuing to develop new features that further enhance what is already a formidable collection of applications

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

Brother MFC-L8900CDW

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
