Editors' review

This news and blog aggregator lives up to its name by offering a huge selection of feeds, but you'll need a map to navigate this zoo. BigBlogZoo's interface is so user-unfriendly that we had a difficult time finding our way around. It takes over your entire screen, so there's no hiding this program from your boss.

The tree menu houses more than 70,000 newsfeeds and blogs, all organized into channels. We found ourselves doing more clicking than we would have liked to drill down to a link. Once we drilled down, selecting a link did pull up the corresponding site very quickly. We liked the keyword search, which pulled related links and promptly placed them in the Bookmarks folder. What we didn't like is the error message we got when we tried to add a new channel to the list.

This program is a great source for all the latest blogs, and it promises some great features. Unfortunately, it's too much of a hassle trying to figure out how to get those features to work. If you're looking for a tool to help manage your blogs and newsfeeds, look for one that's easier to navigate.

    "cool app that has something new"

    September 22, 2005   |   By krebsnet

    Version: BigBlogZoo 1.0.5.

    Pros

    liked how the app indexes a bunch of blogs across the web in one easy-to-navigate tree. Also liked the fact that it lets you setup your own search spiders which I have not seen before

    Cons

    download was little big but I guess I can't complain too much about that.
