Review by FileBEAST's J.W.B:

NewsPiper is a good way to stay up to speed with the latest happenings from around the world, as the utility streams live headlines, either via RSS feeds or paraphrasing actual website news reports, direct to your desktop. If you don’t have hours a day to scan newspapers and online sources, then NewsPiper is an excellent alternative. The user interface is simple and attractive and the setup process is blissfully straightforward. Unfortunately, NewsPiper is a little short on features, and pales in comparison to some of the other freeware RSS publishers available. While users are able to browse, customize and even categorize their headlines, NewsPiper doesn't offer any options for individual news items to be saved, flagged or filtered. It is also a pity that only headlines are displayed, which in itself is a major oversight on the developers part. NewsPiper is a good, all round headline viewing utility, that is let down by a few design flaws.

NewsPiper - Info

NewsPiper is an RSS feed reader, news aggregator, web grabber and news ticker in one program. It allows you to monitor your favorite news sites (cnn.com, foxnews.com, etc.), RSS feeds or blogs, retrieve necessary news and display it in the usual three panes newsreader interface (channels, news titles, news details) or scroll it in a special bar (NewsBar) placed at the top of your screen. For each shown headline, you can open the "full story" page in your default web browser simply by clicking on the headline.

Another useful feature of NewsPiper Pro is "news pronouncing": you can set it up to pronounce news headlines and details from one or more channels so NewsPiper can be used as a "radio tuner" for your favorite RSS feeds or Web sites.

Adding a new channel is very easy: you can manually enter the URL of a web site or an RSS feed, or drag-and-drop it from a web browser or another program, or simply paste it in from the clipboard.

You can also add channels from an "Online channel catalog" containing many popular web sites and RSS feeds.

In addition, NewsPiper checks your connection status according to a schedule you setup and changes the color of the icon in the system tray bar accordingly: green means you are online, red indicates offline.
