Consider this another episode of True Confessions. I’m a news junkie, a mediaholic, a current events tracker. My RSS reader is full of news sites from every persuasion; from NPR to CNN to PBS and an occasional foray into Fox News. If you fall into the category of Mac user who needs to keep a finger on the pulse of the Church of What’s Happening Now, then you’ll like Hourly News.
One click to the Mac’s Menubar brings you news to listen to; not just to read. Hourly News is more of a podcasting newscasting app. Click and recent news is available for your hears, plays in the background, and continues to go from one news outlet to another automatically.
Click, and ye shall receive.
The variety of news is worthwhile and gives you options of everything from VOA, ESPN, Fox, BBC, ABC, CBS, WSJ, NBC, Bloomberg and many others, including CBC.
One click to the Menubar gives you the options.
Hourly News is nicely designed, mostly unobtrusive (except for the help mode upon startup), and adds a new dimension to feeding your newsaholic addiction.
