Newsbin has released version 6.3 of its popular USENET client. It includes quite a few improvements that should be of interest to those who want to get the most out of the USENET system. Some of the features are pure convenience, but because of the type of convenience they offer, they should make the process of using the USENET system and downloading information much more efficient and end up saving quite a bit of time for the user.
Newsbin 6.3 retains the feature that allows users to control the client with their iPhone or other mobile device. This is a very handy feature for those who like to stay hooked up, no matter where they go. The new authentication scheme removes the requirement that you enter your Newsbin key each time you want to use this feature. Another great control feature added to this version is the ability for Newsbin to shut down your computer or put it into hibernation when it is completed with the last download you have scheduled. This is a great feature for people who like to start downloads and go to bed, letting the computer complete the download while they sleep.
If you download a lot of video files, you know that you sometimes end up with a video that you didn’t count on when you started the download. To eliminate this sort of inconvenience, Newsbin 6.3 has a feature that allows you to view videos when they are partially downloaded. This means that you don’t have to wonder if you are downloading what you think you’re downloading anymore and that you can take a look at a video before you decide whether or not it’s actually worth the space on your hard drive and the bandwidth on your Internet connection.
There is a free and pro version of this new Newsbin client. The free version is a trial version. With the purchase of the full version, you get upgrades for the rest of your life, along with all of the powerful features that this client offers. The new client is available on the Newsbin site. For users who make extensive use of the service and who need a better way to make sure that they’re not wasting their time on files that are worth downloading and who want to make certain that they have a very high level of control over the downloads, there are some great improvements in this client that should interest them.
