eNewsReader is a ground-breaking program for AmigaOS4, which allows you to
easily keep track of tens (or even hundreds!) of news sources.  You no-longer
need to visit many websites every day or week, on the off-chance there might be
something new.  And by centralising all your news sources in one place, you will
save masses of time, so it's great for people with busy lives.  I created
eNewsReader because of my frustration at how bad existing news readers were
(such as Feedly & Digg Reader, never mind Facebook & Twitter themselves).

Why use it?
-----------
Not only does eNewsReader keep track of which news items you have *read*, it
has a unique feature that I have not seen in any other news reader:  It also
keeps track of what news items you have *seen* (but ignored as
uninteresting).

Thanks to this unique feature, it's possible to follow a very large number of
news sources, without loosing track of which news items you've already seen.
This means you won't waste a lot of time trying to find the start of the stuff
you haven't seen yet (assuming you could even remember!).  And you can read
different news feeds when you feel like it, rather than needing to check
everything at the same time (due to it all getting lumped together by say
Facebook or Twitter).

As well as following the (RSS & Atom) news feeds of websites & blogs (like most
news readers can), you are also able to follow people & companies on Twitter,
and follow friends, groups & companies on Facebook.

You will need to give eNewsReader permission to access your Timeline posts on
Facebook, as well as your list of Friends, then you can then easily:
* See when someone posts on your Timeline.
* See when someone posts on a public group (on Facebook).
* See when a company posts on their Facebook page.
* You can also follow what your friends post on their Timeline, but they will
  first need to give eNewsReader permission to access their Timeline.

The news feeds of different websites vary.  Some give you a summary of the news
item, and then expect you to open a link to their website to read the full
thing, while others provide the whole news item, in which case you can read it
without having to leave eNewsReader.  You will also need to visit the website to
see any pictures or click on any links inside the news item.

In the case of Facebook, while you can read complete posts from eNewsReader, if
you wish to reply or post a comment, then you will need to open the link to
Facebook's website.  And you will need to use the Odyssey web browser, so that
eNewsReader can login to Facebook.

Recent History
--------------
r2 (18.06.2017)
* All demo/trial limitations have been removed.  Usage of eNewsReader is
  unrestricted.  This is the full version!  I've done this partly because there
  has been far too little interest in eNewsReader for me to justify providing
  proper (commercial) support & updates, but also because of personal reasons.
* Added more websites to "Amiga.opml".

r1 (22.04.2017)
* The first public release.
