NewsGator gives full control of FeedDemon back to developer

The story of how NewsGator attempted to corner the market on consumer RSS has taken another strange turn. In an interview with Steven Hodson published on Hodson's Shooting at Bubbles site, Bradbury admits that he is no longer employed by NewsGator, but has retained the full rights to his popular FeedDemon RSS reader. NewsGator continues to offer FeedDemon, and the application is still...

NetNewsWire reaches version 3.2, finalises Google Reader support + ads

NewsGator web reader not quite dead yet, desktop apps still not ready

It was a pretty big deal in the RSS world when NewsGator, the company behind two of the most popular desktop feed readers, decided to drop its web app and syncing services and sync with Google Reader instead. NewsGator's web version was scheduled to go dark August 31st, but fans of the service are getting a short reprieve. The web reader will now shut down September 10th, instead. Why? Well, the...

NewsGator kills its Windows Mobile, BlackBerry, Outlook clients too

A 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....

NewsGator kills its web-based feed reader, supports Google Reader instead

NewsGator's web-based feed reader has always gotten a lot of mileage as the only supportive way to sync with the popular FeedDemon desktop reader and NetNewsWire desktop and iPhone apps. But it almost seems redundant to support your own web-based RSS product when Google Reader is so popular, and offers a comparable user experience. That's what NewsGator seems to think, anyway. The company just...

Jason's Favorite Windows apps: FeedDemon

FeedDemon has been the best RSS news reading application on the Windows platform for a long time. The folks at NewsGator certainly thought so, and instead of building their own standalone news aggregator for Windows, they bought FeedDemon. The best news is that though FeedDemon was at one time a commercial product (and worth every penny), it's now available for free. Even when it was a standalone...

But this week saw the released of RSS Bandit 1.7 Alpha with one killer new feature: support for synchronization with your Google Reader or NewsGator feeds. Here's how it works. You download and install the open source application, and...

NewsGator adds RSS PostRank

NewsGator and AideRSS have partnered to add PostRank features to NewsGator's online RSS feed reader. PostRank is basically determined by looking at each item in a feed and determining its popularity based on factors such as how many comments it has received, how many other sites link to that post, how many times it has been saved to del.icio.us, or voted up on Digg. Each article is then assigned...

Should software be native or web-based?

How many of the applications you use on a daily basis are web-based as opposed to locally installed native applications? For me, the answer is way more than I ever would have expected. Had you asked me this question a few years ago, I would have vehemently denied that the future of development is on the web. As much as I could see and understand the value of a ubiquitously available web-based...

China blocks RSS feeds

While China has a history of blocking computer users' access to many sites on the world wide interwebs, many clever Chinese citizens have figured out that RSS feeds provided a way around the Chinese firewall. Until now. Ars Technica reports that China has started blocking any URL that starts with "feeds," "rss," and "blog." That makes it pretty difficult to access the feeds for an awful lot of...

Feed Each Other: a social RSS reader

Feed Each Other is a new social RSS reader. What does that mean? Well, it's kind of a social network and RSS reader all rolled into one, sort of like a cross between Google Reader and Facebook. As an RSS reader, the layout should be pretty familiar to anyone who uses Bloglines, NewsGator, Google Reader, or any of the other popular web-based RSS readers. You can organize your feeds into folders...
