I don't know exactly what you mean by "decent" so it's difficult to be
confident that you'll like what's available.
To start with, there's the NewsFlash (tknf) newsreader:
I wrote my own newsreader for a minority platform, too:
There are probably others lurking in FTP archives.
I have to admit that my own attempt isn't exactly the best example you
could hope for. My excuse is that I had to create my own widget set at
the same time as writing the application. If I still had to use it, I
would probably rewrite it, or at least refactor it severely.
