NewsGator kills its Windows Mobile, BlackBerry, Outlook clients too

NewsGator GoA few days ago we let you know that NewsGator was planning to shut down its once-popular web-based RSS reader. But it looks like the NewsGator web client isn't the only product on the chopping block. The company is also killing off NewsGator Go! and NewsGator Inbox.

NewsGator Inbox is an application that works with Microsoft Outlook to let you read and manage your feeds from the email client. NewGator Go! is a mobile application for BlakBerry and Windows Mobile phones and PDAs, as well as other Java-enabled smartphones.

NewsGator will be launching a new iPhone app soon, but for Windows Mobile and BlackBerry users, the company has this bit of advice: Find a new application that syncs with Google Reader. The company's existing products like the FeedDemon and NetNewsWire desktop RSS readers will be able to synchronize your feeds and read/unread items with Google Reader. It looks like the company decided to retired Inbox and Go! rather than build the same functionality into those apps.

How do you get your news on the go? Do you use a mobile RSS reader for BlackBerry or Windows Mobile? Or do you just use the mobile web interface for Google Reader? Let us know in the comments.
