Editors' Review

+

This well-crafted, standalone newsreader makes an ideal choice for both novices who've never heard of an RSS feed and advanced users looking to put some oomph and flexibility into their reading habits.We particularly liked FeedDemon's setup wizard, which allows you to subscribe to an unlimited number of popular RSS feeds by simply checking boxes. The program also provides links to several other RSS directories.

FeedDemon's interface is very good, but its default setting, which places the headline and browser panes side by side, is somewhat clumsy. This is easily remedied with the buttons that sit right at the top of each folder and each item. The utility's Watch Channels feature searches for news items containing user-specified keywords and places them in a separate group so they're easier to find. We're also fond of the app's News Bins function, which allows you to archive a story simply by dragging a headline and placing it in a storage bin in the left-side column.

Another compelling feature is the integrated podcast manager, which will automatically send new podcasts to your music jukebox. There's a support forum where you can post questions and get answers from other users, and Newsgator has a free webware client so you can check your feeds wherever you are. We strongly recommend using FeedDemon to soothe your hunger.

    "I have not used it enough yet to form a full opinion."

    December 18, 2011   |   By Demandred71

    Version: FeedDemon 4.0.0.22

    Pros

    Easy to add feeds and present them to you in a tabbed fashion.

    Cons

    I may have not fully explored it enough to know for sure, but I would like it to be able to use an external player to play the video of downloaded video podcast. Right now I go to the download folder to play back video downloads.

    Summary

    So for so good. It seems to be a very capable program.

    Version: FeedDemon 4.0.0.22

    Pros

    Intuitive and has a pretty good browser.
    Easy to use

    Cons

    none that I could find

    Summary

    I was using another product. I switched to a new computer and already formatted the old hard drive before I remembered that I needed the other reader. I could not remember what it was called. I tried this and it does the job. I couldn't be happier.
    I use it mainly for rss feeds of craigslist searches.
