Editors' review

With options to customize and a comprehensive user guide, this easy-to-use RSS feed reader offers features that will be please both novice and experienced users.

FeedGhost features a stylish interface with very appealing configurability. We could select from a variety of skins, and we liked the ability to configure the interface as either a three-pane, email-client format or as a continuous thread of stories. The tabbed pane for switching among opened feeds article lists was also very handy. The array of buttons in the toolbar might intimidate novice users, but the tutorial that opens on initial launch explains their use, and mastery follows quickly thereafter.

We were pleased at how quickly FeedGhost responded in all our tests. In addition, we liked that we could import our existing OPML feeds from another client or rely on this applications preloaded list of feeds in a number of popular categories. Adding feeds was simple, too. Clicking article links opened the source site in our default browser rather than in Internet Explorer, avoiding a problem we've had with other readers who force the use of IE.

The trial may seem short to some users, but its generous enough to determine whether you might want to purchase FeedGhost. The cost might seem a little pricey in a world full of free readers, but some users will be willing to pay for this apps extras and its ease of use.

    "Needs other software before it will install"

    April 14, 2011   |   By kimada17

    Version: FeedGhost 1.0.274

    Pros

    Don't know - couldn't install it

    Cons

    Needs other software before it will install

    Summary

    Another program that's looking for some version of Microsoft .net framework that is apparently not already on my computer. I'm on a wireless connection with limited bandwidth; since it wouldn't tell me how big that other download would be I decided to abort the installation. It would be *really* helpful if the extra software needed were mentioned on this page...
