    Have no idea what are nzb files, but I use a Newstap NNTP reader. Didn't see anything nzb related in this app.

    Wow, I haven't played on the newsgroups for ages.

    The only think I could find in the App Store was SABmobile HD. Looks like an iPad front end for some sort of newsgroup software that has to be running on a desktop; but it does mention nzb downloads.

    There are similar controller apps for the iPhone that would probably work on the iPad. Just search for 'usenet nzb'.

    I doubt that was helpful. Sorry.
