Editors' Review

+

RSS is like a drug for news junkies, allowing headlines, blog posts, and podcasts to be sent automatically to a computer's desktop every day. RSS Bandit is a freeware software program for subscribing, managing, and reading this flow of news.

It has many attractive features, allowing a user to merge news headlines from multiple sources onto a single page and organize articles based on keyword, read/unread status, and age. We liked the built-in tabbed browser that allows a user to read the full article and search for new newsfeeds without quitting the program. Adding newfeeds is a simple one-click action, and the software lets users customize frequency and display settings for each individual feed. Once those settings are chosen, the program updates automatically and can display alerts whenever a new headline is available.

We would have liked to see a more flexible search capability, and the internal browser could have used an address bar to make Web navigation a bit easier, but on the whole RSS Bandit is an attractive choice for Web news hounds.

    "In theory great, in reality it is very unstable"

    April 17, 2011   |   By imperialcoins

    Version: RSS Bandit 1.9.0.1002

    Pros

    Easy to use

    Cons

    Highly unstable. Freezes often

    Summary

    A quick search reveals that there have been several known issues for many years which make this program unstable. If they ever get around to addressing them this would be one of the best RSS readers.
