- You can now open links embedded in posts.
- Read messages are now displayed in a different color, making it easier to spot unread messages in a group.

- Fixed some UI issues and did some tweaks.
Ratings and Reviews
as an one of the student of metu or odtu we should support its products
If you're looking for a decent usenet reader, this isn't it. In fact, I've yet to find a good newsreader yet for iOS. Perhaps its is because usenet itself has become antiquated. In any case, don't t waste your time with this.
Developer Response ,
I'm sorry if you're disappointed, but Ayran is not meant to be a general purpose Usenet reader. It is targeted at a very specific audience (people at the Department of Computer Engineering, Middle East Technical University) and won't work without a valid METU-CENG account. I do have plans to turn it into a full-fledged, general purpose Usenet reader in the future, though.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
