Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009

This newsfeed screensaver tool offers a way to keep up to date with news posted to your favorite Web sites, but the end product is a little too clunky for us to recommend it highly.

RSSMore has a minimal menu bar with only a few commands. Because its primary duty is to serve as a screensaver that displays updated RSS feeds, launching the Help feature opens a screen-filling window that directs you to two vertically-arranged panes. In these panes, you specify the feeds that will populate the news listings in the RSSMore screensaver.

The download is a tad large, and as a result, slow, but installation is very quick. The program is easy to set up, and it was simple for us to add Web pages as well as newsfeeds to the list of screensaver displays. We also were able to specify the background images that appeared behind the feeds. Further, the feeds could be randomized or set to a single source.

This free tool may be suitable for novices curious about a newsfeeding screensaver, but there are more robust rivals available.

Developer's Description

RSSMore is an RSS reader screensaver that lets you subscribe to any number of RSS or XML feeds and view them in your screensaver. You can also specify a folder (including its sub folders) to provide background images. The RSSMore screensaver loops through the list of feeds and shows the items and their contents in transparent text boxes over your background images. You can also click and browse any news headlines directly from the screensaver. Version 1.0.1 can now display Web pages in their original form, so you can include non-RSS sites in your playlist.
