Any news reader/podcast receiver worth its disk space should do more than gather headlines. It should also help you search for and organize the latest and most in-depth information on the subjects you're most interested in. All of these functions and more make eSobi among the most popular information management tools available. It combines an RSS reader for searching and gathering the news and updates you want it to, a meta-search engine, and an information library built out of items you select, with eSobi's help. You can build a database of articles, references, and other saved materials that could take a long time to find through ordinary searching.
The program's interface resembles an email client for a nice, familiar feel. Tabs for News, Podcast, Search, and Library manage content in a left-hand sidebar. The search and indexing features built into eSobi simplify finding just the right bit of information, whether it's in your library or the Internet. Setup and configuration are as easy as a Windows Installer can make them, and so is setting the options, such as how much space on your hard drive you want for your library. You can register eSobi without buying it to take full advantage of online features.
The fully functional trial version of eSobi is free to use for 90 days, after which it's $19.95. That's more than long enough to see whether eSobi is for you. Chances are, if you've been using it for 90 days, it'll be hard to give up.
