Editors' Review

Transform your boring desktop into an RSS feed and photo slide show with this nifty media management tool. Roxio MediaTicker presents a ticker-style bar that can be placed at various positions on your desktop. Vivid thumbnail images and feed links scroll or fade-in (depending on your preference) continuously across the bar.

The great thing about this toolbar is that it can be resized three different ways to suit your tastes, though we found that the smallest thumbnail size impedes your view of the RSS feed links. Even more impressive is that your browser resizes itself so that it doesn't hide the picture bar. Double-clicking an image instantly pulls the image from the bar, where you have the option of printing, e-mailing, or setting it as a desktop background. Likewise, clicking a feed link took us directly to the corresponding Web site for the full article. We were able to easily figure out how to add our own pictures and feeds, but if you're still unsure, there's a helpful how-to link that offers instructions.

There's not really anything bad we can say about this freebie. Users of all levels will certainly find this a great tool for keeping current with the latest news and pics.

"Keeps stalling"

October 11, 2010  |  By mesmolin

 |  Version: Roxio MediaTicker 2.1

Pros

I liked the display and that it automatically resized the rest of the desktop to fit. It let me specify the directory and whether or not to include sub-folders.

Cons

It would freeze about once a day.

"Lovely addition to my system"

January 16, 2008  |  By farokh

 |  Version: Roxio MediaTicker 2.1

Pros

Nice combination of RSS feeds and pictures from the local drive

Cons

Wish list: Can deselect individual folders. I have folders within my main pictures folder that I do not want to see. Rather than add a whole bunch of folders, I would like to be able to select the main folder, than remove the unwanted folders.

"Best Program of it's Kind"

August 09, 2007  |  By keefer62

 |  Version: Roxio MediaTicker 2.1

Pros

Not much else out there that compares to this scrolling feed and picture bar. It's easy to setup, easy to change settings. You can have it scroll, or if that annoys you, you can set it to fade in. Bottom, top or side screen. It was a bit heavy on the memory, but I think programs of this nature are.

Cons

Nothing bad really, would just like to see it integrated to authorize with flickr, so you can see friends and families private pictures.
