NewsTap is a powerful Usenet Newsreader for the iPad, iPhone and the iPod Touch.

Features:
- Optimized for offline usage, so you can read and write news articles without an internet connection

- It's easy and simple to subscribe, manage and read news groups.

- Filters (also known as "Killfile") can automatically mark articles as read or mark them with a certain color.

- The application fully supports the portrait and landscape mode.

- Support for binary groups (photos and other files). Photos and pictures can be displayed directly. It's possible to add photos into the photo album or open them in other Apps.

- Quotes are displayed in different colors. Colors are also used to distinguish between read and unread articles, filtered articles.

- Hyperlinks are automatically detected and can be opened in a web browser.

- Optimized article layout for the small iPhone display. The original article layout is also available.

- Navigate within the articles from within the thread view or simply by flipping to the next/previous article with your finger.

- A graphical „tree view“ visualizes a complete discussion and makes it super-easy to follow and participate discussions.

- It's possible to hide articles that are already read and to hide quotes.

- Sync the read/unread states of the articles using a „newsrc“ file with other usenet client. The sync can be done via SFTP, WebDAV, Dropbox and iCloud.

- Post new articles or send followups.

- Build-in help, which explains all the application features.
