Feeder for Mac

Editors' Review

by   / November 26, 2013

Feeder for Mac is a powerful tool for creating, customizing, and publishing RSS feeds that are in turn compatible with the iTunes store and other popular formats. While it certainly requires some degree of familiarity with the technology and formats, the tools here are laid out in an intuitive and accessible way that make the tool useful for anyone that manages or publishes multiple RSS feeds.

After installation, you can immediately start using Feeder with all of its features in a trial mode. This allows you to create new Standard Feeds, iTunes podcast feeds, Sparkle app casting feeds, and more from a single interface. With multiple templates available for different formats, in most cases it's as easy as drag and drop and filling in the blanks that the app provides you. You can create new feeds at any time, publish them from the app, directly, or share them with friends. For anyone that has a self-hosted podcast, video series, or internal blog, this is a very useful tool and the intuitive layout makes it easy to master.

If you are creating content on a regular basis and need an app that will help you create custom feeds for that content, consider Feeder. The free version allows you to test all of the built-in features, though you will need to upgrade for $39 to keep them at a certain point. Either way, it offers a range of options that are well suited to anyone who produces content they want to share.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Feeder for Mac 2.4.4.
