Just in time for Google Readerís demise, beloved RSS reader NetNewsWire launches open beta

In just a couple of weeks, Google will shut the door on Reader forever. But now a local reader alternative is coming back with a vengeance and, eventually, with syncing between Mac, iPhone and iPad.

Itís called NetNewsWire 4 and you may have heard of it. Thatís because it basically created the standard for news readers on the desktop computer when it was introduced in 2002 by its creator Brent Simmons. Simmons was then hired on by NewsGator when it bought NetNewsWire in 2005, left to found Sepia Labs, the makers of Glassboard. More recently, Simmons went indie again with the release of the Vesper notes app directed by John Gruber and designed by Dave Wiskus.

The app was acquired by Black Pixel in 2011, and the firm set about rebuilding it as a client for the Mac and iOS.
