NewsFire is an RSS newsreader developed by David Watanabe for Mac OS X. It supports Atom, RSS, and Podcasting. NewsFire features groups, labels, smart groups, search, and integration with iTunes, Spotlight, and weblog editors. NewsFire can also import and export a blogroll from and to OPML; however, it cannot import Google Reader OPML at this time due to a known bug.

On March 1, 2008 NewsFire became freeware, but since the release of NewsFire 2.0 to the Mac AppStore on February 3, 2011, NewsFire is not freeware anymore.

In a Mac OS X Hints poll on Thursday, March 17, 2005, NewsFire had 14.2% with 121 votes, making it the second-most popular news reader for Mac OS X, behind NetNewsWire.

NewsFire 1.3 requires Mac OS X v10.4. NewsFire 1.1 was the final version supporting Mac OS X v10.3.
