NetNewsWire has always been my favorite desktop newsreader, but as much as I love it, I really hated Newsgator Online, which it syncs with. I always preferred Google Reader and would rather sync with it. My wish has been granted – a new NetNewsWire beta which syncs with Google Reader was released today.
It’s a beta and it still has a few rough edges, but I’m thrilled to finally be rid of NewsGator and be able to use NetNewsWire with Google Reader. This change was necessary since NewsGator is discontinuing NewsGator online for end users on August 31.
NetNewsWire for iPhone will also be updated to use Google Reader.
