    Dear forum users,

    I am currently working on an nzb usenet downloader for OSX.
    The focus of the usenet clients is: easy of use, efficiency and no-nonsense approuch.

    Before I release it to the public I want to do some extensive user testing with a limited number of users.

    What is in this version (alfa version, features missing)
    - Multi connection downloading
    - yEnc encoding
    - Simple but clear UI
    - Optimized for OSX (32/64 bit)
    - Native GUI for OSX
    - Small footprint, micro (270KB at this stage)
    - Low HDD usage (memory caching)

    What need to be done (priority ordered)
    - Persit state after restart of client
    - Speed limit and display of speed
    - Automatic PAR/PAR2 checking
    - Conditional download of par2 files
    - Automatic UNRAR


    It's an early release so I need some users who want to help me test.
    Please send me a PM or e-mail to opt-in, I'll be happy to send you the first version!

    Some early progress screenshots:

    Hope you'll want to help me with some testing!

    promoting your own software/website is against the forum rules.

    Is it really that bad here?
    I am not trying to promote my software, I do not even have a site yet.
    Like the first topic said I try to get some user feedback for a beta application.

    If that isn't allowed: close the thread: by all means.
    My apologies if I broke the forum rules.
