Smilies and Formatting
Formatting The three most common formatting rules for plaintext are supported, *bold*, /italic/ and _underline_ and URLs are automatically highlighted and clickable. Signatures are recognized and displayed in gray to not distract from the main content. Moreover, a lot of smilies are supported.

All those features can be enabled and disabled individually in the settings.
Quoting When displaying a post with quotes, there is no limit to the depth of the quotation. Every level is displayed with a different color and makes it therefore easy to see who the author of the quoted text was.

When replying to a post, the post is automatically quoted.
Reply view
Reply View Beneath the currently viewed post is a hierarchical display of all posts in this thread. This makes it easy to jump to a specific post and to see which posts have been read already. The hierarchical layout has the advantage of showing the relationship between posts. By long clicking on a post title it is also possible to mark a post as read or unread and to share a post (for example by mail).
...and many more
There are a lot more features, like
  • an offline mode which supports reading all posts offline that have been downloaded
  • cancelling of posts
  • a user defined signature that is added to every post
  • support for most character encodings, even in subject and author name
  • an option to hide all threads where all posts have been read
  • a search function for available newsgroups
  • a post info, that displays all available infos for a post like author, subject, date, newsgroups, message id, etc...
So check out this useful app.
