MAC OS version, Please?

This is the best, cleanest, most user-friendly of all the newsreaders. I LOVE it. But I am a major MAC fan, and have a MAC at home, so can only use AWASU at work. Any chance of a MAC version any time soon? I am sure MAC enthusiasts would love AWASU, it is just like a MAC, powerful, elegant, customizable and very user-friendly. Please consider a MAC version! I live in hope, and thanks for your consideration.

Thanks for the kind words :-)

Unfortunately, the hamsters are already running around in their wheel at top-speed just working on the Windows version. Awasu has been designed to be easy to port to other platforms and Linux and Mac versions are definitely planned, it's just a matter of finding the time.

In the meantime, I've heard only good things about NetNewsWire for the Mac (http://www.ranchero.com/) so that's probably your best bet until we can hire some more hamsters :-)

Oh Joy!

Thanks for the recommendation for NetNewsWire, I will check it out, as a stop-gap until the MAC version of AWASU is available.

Just knowing that a MAC version is under consideration is great news! I am also delighted to hear that a Linux version is on your radar screen. I can be patient, knowing that I have something truly excellent to look forward to, I know it will be worth the wait. After all, anticipation is at least half the pleasure.

In the meantime, please convey my kindest regards and deepest admiration to all the hampsters, they are doing a tremendous job. I wish them all much success with this great app!


:D

You guys have done great work with this product. I am very bummed that I can only run it on my PC. I use my PC for work and my personal life is on my G5. I would love to be able to synch the two.

Thanks :-)

There is a way of doing a very limited kind of synchronization between different aggregators that Awasu will support soon. So you will be able to run Awasu at work and a Mac aggregator at home and keep the two in sync.

I know from the lists I've joined there are a significant number of Mac users who would love to have AWASU, if you need reinforcement and encouragement.

Thanks for the support! Lots of purchases and funding so that we can hire more developers would be pretty handy as well :-)

I know some Mac users who have used Parallels (commercial license $79.99 USD) to run Windows apps on a Mac and there's also Wine (free open source).

You might give them a try.

We don't have anything planned at the moment.
