In the last couple of weeks we were aware of the impending release of the new remote control client, but have been putting off checking it out, in advance of the final release to the iStore…in hindsight, we may have made a mistake. While waiting for the release, we have been using another app, Splashtop, to remotely control our NewsBin Pro, but sadly this app was designed as a desktop app, with iOS in mind so the integration didn’t take full advantage of the potential that was there.
On the 5th of December though, the Apple app store included the app, appropriately named NBRemote. The App will cost you a meager $2.99, but any Apple mobile device, the iPod Touch, iPad, and iPhone, will run it, and the full features you want will be available…but there are a few things you need to pay attention to first.
Before you head on over to the app store, you need to take care of a few details first…you know, the prerequisites. There aren’t too many, but here is the short list:
If you have been thinking about getting your subscription, then this is a great incentive for the purchase, and there couldn’t be a better time than now. For a short time NewsBin has reduced the cost of the service from $35 down to $20, and lifetime upgrades are free with your subscription. They also have their NewsBin Internet Search that you may want to subscribe to.
NewsBin is one of the top newsreader services we highly recommend. For the one time fee you will not only receive one of the best Usenet newsreaders in existence today, but every time they update, or add a feature, you can get the update free. Here’s a little more about the client:
As we said before, the price has been reduced for a short time, so don’t take too long to decide that you want it, and the NBRemote, now that was just too cool for us to believe, so we haven’t fully tested and explored it yet, but we will, and as we said, we will also be publishing tutorials on the app. If you would like to know more about NewsBin, or other Usenet access, you can read their details in our
