Editors' Review

If you don't want to spend a lot of time checking your RSS news reader for updated feeds, you can do it on the fly with this app, which places a headline ticker at the top of the currently active window in addition to offering the standard reader.

Titlebar Ticker places a relatively unobtrusive bar at the top of your active windows frame that clearly indicates when fresh content arrives. We liked how moving the mouse over the ticker bar opened a second tier with the news source name, navigation arrows to move to another news feed, and an icon for opening a drop-down list of all the headlines from the current feed. Titlebar Ticker also adds an RSS icon in the system tray. Right-clicking the RSS icon allowed us to customize a number of options, including having the app play a tone when a feed updates. Left-clicking the RSS icon opened a three-paned window, similar to the familiar e-mail-client interface for listing the feed sources, headlines, and Web links.

We found it curious that launching a link from the ticker bar opened the story in our default browser (Firefox), but launching one from the larger three-paned interface opened the story in Internet Explorer. That mystery aside, we recommend this app for its handy dual approach to reading feeds.

"Worked for one day, then wouldn't initialize on boot-up"

November 11, 2008  |  By sandypollack

 |  Version: Titlebar Ticker 1

Pros

When it works, it works.

Cons

Doesn't work anymore. When it worked, wouldn't always track the active window. Limits the space on the title bar where the window could be grabbed for dragging. Display is not customizable.
