Questions Answered

Why should I pick you over the competition?

What competition? News Anchor delivers a unique unrivaled experience in RSS reading. The only known competitors are Noodle Reader and Read It To Me – both needs a PowerPC Mac to run. News networks like CNN and Fox News aren’t competitors because they show what they want to show and not what you want to see.

I want to feature News Anchor in my computer store. Can you issue a demo license for me?

Sure, if you an Apple employee or you are an employee of a computer store that also sell Macintoshes, just ask us for an NFR license. You’ll need an e-mail that ends with or has the domain name of an Apple authorized reseller.

I’m a member of the press, and want to review News Anchor for my website. Do you have something for me?

You can find News Anchor high-resolution screenshots, icons, and other tidbits at our Press Information page. If you want a license for review purposes, just ask us.

I have already purchased News Anchor but the App Store doesn’t show that I already have it.

This is to prevent the App Store from overwriting your copy of News Anchor. Technically, the bundle identifiers are different and this is needed since the two versions use different ways to verify your license.

Is the Mac App Store version different from the version I can download from your site?

Both versions are functionally identical apart from the update mechanism and license verification. The website version still updates itself whereas the App Store version is updated via the App Store application. Furthermore the App Store version is dependent on Apple’s approval schedule.

I already own News Anchor, how can I migrate my purchase to the Mac App Store?

Currently Apple does not provide any way to migrate purchases to the Mac App Store. For existing customers, News Anchor will continue to receive regular updates outside App Store’s mechanism.

Do you offer refunds in case I find News Anchor unsuitable?

Yes, please contact us within 14 days of purchase to get your money back. Be sure to include your Order ID and tell us why you want a refund. The refund policy is valid only for purchases from this website — please contact Apple to refund your purchase from the Mac App Store.

If I buy News Anchor from you, will you use my credit card for fraud?

Heck no. Your payment will be processed by FastSpring, the trusted reseller of software products and services. We won’t even see your credit card information as FastSpring keeps it confidential.
