Usenet Wire is a simple yet effective app that allows you to enjoy thousands of newsgroups, with unparalleled processing speeds. With Usenet Wire accessing Usenet is a simple and fast affair.

Key Features include:

  • Automated Searches.
  • Easy Setup.
  • Automatic Search & Download.
  • Auto Repair.
  • Auto Decompression.

Usenet Wire is presented in a simple, yet well managed interface. Once the app is up and running after the sign in page, the first screen you see is the browser’s home screen. From the home screen, you are then able to begin browsing the most recent posts to all newsgroups, called ‘Latest File Groups’, the most highly rated posts called “Best File Groups” or you can request a custom search from the top right of the browser window using the the Global Usenet Search box’ the results of which are shown in new tabs in the main window, underneath the main icon bar.

Next up, you can download files from the posts you found. It’s as easy as clicking on the post to confirm the download. If you need to see information on your downloads, just click on the 'Transfers' button at the top; all active downloads are denoted with a red square.

If you want to find a newsgroup to browse, simply click the ‘Newsgroups’ button at the top that looks like a newspaper. You are then presented with a list of newsgroups available from Usenet in the main window.

Usenet Wire also has some other standard features that you would expect from an app such as this; bookmarks, indexing, connection configurations etc. but Usenet Wire presents them in a logical interface that is easy to navigate and can be accessed by anyone with a rudimentary knowledge of newsgroups.
