Comment on Desktop Feed Readers by Karen Blakeman

Hi Patti, Excellent review on desktop readers. I gave up on FeedReader about 18 months ago. At that point it was too unstable but was encouraged by your review to revisit it. Version 3 is much improved over version 2. Re the pop-up notifications, these can be disabled under Tools, Options, General - select 'Do not display notifications'. The smartfeeds, which filter incoming items for keywords, finally work and don't disappear when you close FeedReader. The email option is now stable but you can't add a message to the email because it does not use your default email client. It just sends the link and extract/story to the email address you specify. You can at least send several items in a single email. You are supposed to be able to change both the default update frequency (File, Manage Feeds, Ctrl+A) and individual feed updates (right click on the feed and select Edit Feed) but it doesn't keep the settings. It reverts to Intelliupdate - totally useless for most purposes - so you have to update manually. Another problem for me is that I monitor feeds for friends and colleagues. In Omea I can copy or drag and drop items into folders for each person and topic. When I have finished scanning I select all the items in a folder and email them. FeedReader won't let me do that and I can't see a way round it. RSS Bandit is very good but I have not yet found a way of easily emailing more than one headline/story at a time. Re Omea: you can change how you open the links under Tools, Options, General, Open links to web web pages.... Regards Karen

Hi Patti, Interesting review of some of the main feed readers. I have to confess to being very disappointed by IE7's attempt at managing RSS feeds, but perhaps MicroSoft expect everyone to upgrade Outlook to 2007, which is much better at it. Have you had a chance to test out Feed Reader and Omea yet? BTW, I have blogrolled you on the UKeiG Web 2.0 blog. Karen Blakeman

Hi, Patti, Shakespeare said (something like) 'All the world's a blog, and Everyman's thoughts will for a little while be strutted about on one!' This isn't so much a strut as a stanchion. I think you're on to something in more ways than one here. Have fun with RSS (whatever it means.)
