NetNewsWire Tip: How to Get Test Builds

NetNewsWire includes a feature — as many apps do — where it can check for app updates and let you know when there’s a new version, and then download it, install it, and re-launch the app.

You have a choice, though: you can get release builds or test builds. The default is release builds, because, surely, that’s what most people want.

But if you do want test builds, go to Preferences > Advanced and click right next to “Test builds.”

We appreciate the help!
