NZB360 Returns to Google Play Store

February 21, 2017 update – we’re very excited to share that the latest release of NZB360 is available on Google Play. After three years of being absent from Google Play, Kevin has managed to get NZB360 back in the store. Better yet the latest NZB360 v10 adds support for Radarr. You can download the app free from Google Play and upgrade for $4.99. I encourage anyone who wants to enjoy Usenet access on your Android device to purchase the app. You can read what other Usenet fans have to say about the new app on Reddit.


February 14, 2014 update – Kevin, the developer of NZB360, has been kicking around ideas for distributing and licensing the app outside the Play store.  Unfortunately Google isn’t going to return the app so he is figuring out another distribution method.  Right now it sounds like there will be a base NZB360 app offered free of charge.  With some extra features that you can activate for a fee.  The consensus on Reddit is to offer a one-time fee rather than a subscription model.  It sounds like he might offer both.  The ETA on the app being available is two weeks.  We’ll update you once again when it’s ready.

As of Thursday, February 6th NZB360 is no longer available in the Google Play store.  No explanation is given.  You simply get a “we’re sorry, the requested URL was not found on this server” error message.  We first read about the removal of NZB360 in this sub Reddit forum post.  The developer of the popular Android app confirmed that Google dropped NZB360, apparently without warning and without reason given for the action.

The image above is from the NZB360 page on AppBrain.  According to the site if you have an AppBrain account you can use their installer to directly install the app on your device.  Perhaps that’s another option for the time being.  Assuming AppBrain isn’t just pulling the download from the Google Play store.

Hopefully Google either corrects their mistake or accepts the appeal for NZB360 to return to their store.  If not the developer promises to find a new distribution method.  Given the time and effort spent on making NZB360 arguably the best app of it’s kind for Android users I certainly hope we don’t have to wait long for Google to respond.  If an alternative ends up being necessary we’ll make sure to post the new URL right here.

NZB 360 Now Supports NzbDrone

This post is specifically for Android users who prefer NzbDrone over Sick Beard.  If you fall into that category then you’ll be happy to hear that the latest release of NZB 360 v8 supports NzbDrone.  The app is no longer available through the Google Store but you can learn more about it at  The developer is now distributing the app through the nzb360 site.  He offers both a free and Pro version of the popular Usenet app.

NZB 360 supports NzbDrone

The latest version 8 release of NZB 360 added support for NzbDrone.  Making it the first mobile app to support the service.  It also supports other popular Usenet clients and services including SABnzbd, NZBget, Sick Beard, Newznab, CouchPotato, HeadPhones and now NzbDrone.  The user interface is really nice.

How do you get the app?  First you download the free version from  From there you can upgrade to the Pro version from inside the app using PayPal or credit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover).  Purchasing the app will grant you a full license to that includes future upgrades.

Those who previously purchased the app in Google Play are out of luck.  You will have to buy it again to enjoy the premium features.  I know this is a raw spot for some and understand the tension.  You can read more about it on Reddit.  My personal opinion is that the developer should figure a way to honor past customers licenses but the development of features like the addition of NzbDrone would have been delayed.

We’re glad to see NZB 360 available through it’s own distribution.  The developer is clearly dedicated to adding new features as shown by the latest v8 release supporting NzbDrone.  We look forward to the continued progression of the Android app.  We’ve heard from a few iOS users asking when the app would be ported over.  As of now we haven’t heard of any plans to do that.  You could always add an Android tablet.

For those new to Usenet you’ll still need a provider to use NZB 360.  We can help you find a good one with a full list of Usenet providers along with free trials and discount offers.  As for other automation tools we recommend SABnzbd, Sick Beard and CouchPotato.  The Newshosting client also provides some nice automation features.
