FeedDemon 2.0 Is Coming

Dec 26, 2005

I’ve been using FeedDemon 1.6 RC2 (the version that synchronizes with NewsGator Online) for the past two months as my feed reader.  I monitor over 400 blogs a day and have found that FeedDemon is the only way I can handle this volume effectively.  As an investor in NewsGator, I regularly use all the NewsGator products (very convenient since they almost all sync – NetNewsWire sync should be out soon for you Mac users – so I can easily switch between them.) I also play with many of the other aggregators to make sure I know what folks are up to.  Nothing comes close to FeedDemon for high volume RSS feed reading / management.

Nick Bradbury – the creator of FeedDemon – has put up some teaser screens for FeedDemon 2.0.  A number of the new features are aimed at helping with RAT (relevance / attention / trust) which is important for anyone dealing with a large number of feeds.  NewsGator / Nick decided not to release 1.6 and go directly to 2.0 to take advantage of a number of new things coming in NewsGator Online.

If you are curious about FeedDemon 2.0, take a look at a few of the screens:

  • Main window
  • Media RSS thumbnails
  • Folder newspaper
  • Search for new feeds
  • Unread feed view

Unread feed view – yum.  Awesome stuff Nick.
