Upon opening NewsLife, you are presented with a simple window and a few pre-installed news feeds to get you started. Individual headlines and posts are summarized in the centered reading pane in favor of fitting more headlines on a single page, and clicking any headline will open the entire article - still in a stripped down, content-only RSS view - in a new tab. Clicking the arrow next to any headline will open the actual item in your default browser, and some simple searching tools are provided in the right-most pane. Beyond that, there are some other niceties sprinkled throughout, such as a gear menu in the lower right with blog, email, digg and del.icio.us options, but all this 'extra' functionality is hidden well in a way that it shouldn't get in the way of new users who might not be interested in taking those leaps just yet.
Overall, it looks like NewsLife is a good effort, and its €12 price (about $16 US as of this writing) is a good deal for an entry level RSS app. Of course, a demo is also available, so take it for a test drive if you're looking for a simple, streamlined app for reading your favorite news sites and blogs.
