Meebo for iOS adds Web check-ins and initial Twitter support

Meebo has pumped up its iOS app with a handful of new features which take it beyond multi-network instant messaging. Initial Twitter support has been added, as has the ability for users to check-in to websites they're browsing. You can enter a site manually, or simply scan a QR code. There's also a new real-time feed tab which displays updates from your Facebook, Twitter, and Meebo streams. The...

Free My Feed frees your password-protected RSS feeds for use in online readers

If you're an avid Google Reader fan, you might want to read your friends' Twitter updates in Google Reader alongside your other subscriptions instead of on the Twitter homepage or in a 3rd party application. Although Twitter offers an RSS feed for your friends timeline, strangely it's a password-protected feed. Considering that you can freely find out who someone is following, and then reconstruct...

Combine multiple feeds into one with FeedMingle

I normally use Yahoo! Pipes to combine multiple feeds into one, but that's like swatting a fly with a sledgehammer compared to FeedMingle. It's a single-use site that does nothing but combine feeds and spit out the results in RSS, Atom, JSON or HTML widget flavors. FeedMingle will autodetect feeds if you're lazy like me and just feel like putting in the main URL of a site. It doesn't matter...

ReminderFeed: add reminders to your RSS reader

A lot of sites offer email reminders, web-based to do lists, and even reminders via Twitter. ReminderFeed puts your reminders somewhere else, somewhere you're likely to see them: in your RSS reader. It's ideal for recurring reminders that you want to see in your reader periodically. ReminderFeed is a good concept, but I'd like to see it develop more customization. Some calendar apps can already...

Feedmil: a long tail search engine for RSS feeds

Feedmil is a search engine for RSS and Atom feeds based on the concept of the "Long Tail." Basically, the idea is that small, obscure feeds have an audience as long as the interested people have a way to find them via search technology. So, instead of just entering search terms into Feedmil, you also select a popularity range, anywhere from the obscure to the well-known. By filtering your results...

Troubleshooting RSS addiction: a blogger finds freedom in a world without feeds

It's part of our culture to want to get more done in less time, so it's unsurprising RSS readers are so popular nowadays. But what happens when efficiency and productivity start to replace general happiness? Well, that's what happened to a long time web publisher/surfer known as Halsted (AKA Cygnoir), who recently became fed up with her RSS addiction. "I dread opening my RSS reader these days,"...

RSS SMS for your cell phone: annoying or useful?

At first, it sounds like a texting nightmare from hell, but RSS via SMS has a place in our world through Web-Alerts, a small web experiment that may get lost in the vast internet desert that is web 2.0 failures. The service sends you a text message for every update to a chosen site's RSS feed. The service is simple and easy to use. When you first visit the site, it'll ask your to enter a web...

Google Reader adds Google Talk for sharing

Google has added a new way to share your favorite feeds and articles with friends, through Google Talk, aka the Gmail address book. Google Reader has included a "Share" button for a while now, but if you wanted people to actually read your shared listings, you had to direct them to a URL or RSS feed. Now your Google Talk contacts can also see the items you're sharing on their Google Reader page....

Posting to Pownce and Twitter at the same time

If you are faced with the decision of what tidbits of your life to post on Pownce and what to post on Twitter, worry no more, and post to both at the same time. There is a little hack that Jetpacked brought into the light that makes it possible with TwitterFeed. Normally, Twitterfeed would be used to feed your blog into Twitter, but by creating a link to your Pownce accounts RSS instead of your...

Flickr photos now in Yahoo search

So now that Yahoo owns Flickr why not integrate all these crazy, top notch, up to the second, newsworthy photos into Yahoo's image search? It only makes sense. We wrote about this happening, and it's taken quite a while to do, but Yahoo has finally included Flickr photos in its queried search results. When images are uploaded to Flickr accounts worldwide and tagged, Yahoo gains access to these...

Read feeds in Google Talk with Anothr

Feed reading might be a little time intensive for some busy bodies. Open an application or web location, read, and repeat. How about making it a little easier? Anothr is trying its best to speed feed reading up. We covered them back in October with the release of their RSS aggregator for Skype, and now they enter the market with a reader for users of Google Talk and Jabber clients. To get Anothr...

Tumblr introduces feed importing

We're becoming big fans of Tumblr here at DLS headquarters, and the 'blogging scrapbook' service just introduced a new feed importing feature that makes it an even more appealing tool. A new option in the settings area allows users to add multiple feeds from their other blogs, with the ability to aggregate your other content as regular posts, photos (say, from a Flickr feed) or mere referential...

Catch feeds on your mobile device with Netvibes Mobile

Everyone has been trying out Netvibes new mobile service that was just dropped, so I thought I would give it a go and see what all the hype was about; I was surprised at the results. Netvibes, as you probably know, is an Ajax start page that allows you to plug in feeds and modules to import all of you important information, and have it all right in front of you without switching between...

Greaseonkey script adds a pseudo-search box to Google Reader

Continuing the buzz surrounding the new Google Reader, 3rd party Greasemonkey scripts are cropping up that either modify or add much-requested features (like integrating it with Gmail). At the top of this request list (or at least near it) is search - after all, it is a Google product. Unfortunately, the Reader team's own Mihai Parparita has explained in the product's Google Group that search is...

Facebook changes News Feed after privacy panic

For someone who doesn't have a Facebook account, I've sure been Facebook-obsessed this week. I've been on the edge of my seat watiting to find out what changes, if any, Facebook's developers would make after many users freaked out about their new News Feed and Mini-Feed features. All told, the largest anti-News-Feed group gained more than 700,000 members in about three days, almost 10 percent of...
