Some Free Stuff from NewsGator

My favorite RSS Feed solution (yes, it's not just a reader but way more), which runs on my PCs (Outlook), on my Windows Media Center Edition (as a MCE Service) and on my Windows Mobiles (either as stand-alone client or application), NewsGator just updated their web site and pointed out some great new free stuff for you:

  • FREE Browser Toolbar: Subscribe to feeds and even clip web pages with a single click
    Subscribing to feeds couldn't be easier! The NewsGator browser toolbar automatically finds RSS feeds on web pages that you are reading (even ones that aren't marked!). With a click of a button, you can preview or subscribe to the feed so it automatically shows up in your favorite reader. It also lets you save (clip) any web page to your reader even if the page doesn't have a feed, and it lets you see what pages are linking to the page you're viewing with the cool Discussion feature. You can also search NewsGator's huge online database of feeds to quickly add new subscriptions.
  • FREE Desktop Notifier: Get pop-up notifications of your most important feeds
    Once you try NewsGator Desktop, you'll wonder how you ever got your news without it. NewsGator Desktop runs in your system tray (those little icons in the lower-right corner of the screen). You tell it how often you want it to check for news. When there are new stories available, it pops up a small window where you can quickly read, save, or email the article. You can fly through stories with simple keyboard shortcuts (like spacebar to mark a story read and move to the next one). You can decide exactly what feeds will show up here, so only the most important articles will pop up.
    NewsGator Desktop does a second very cool thing – it will synchronize with your Windows RSS store. What does that mean? If you're using IE7, Outlook 2007 or Vista, NewsGator Desktop can make sure the feeds and articles you see in those applications match the ones in your NewsGator reader. You'll never have to mark an article read in two places again.
  • FREE Screen Saver: Catch your news while your PC takes a snooze
    See your news when your PC takes a snooze! You can use the locations feature in your account to specify only the feeds you want on your screen. You can use the arrow keys to move through feeds and articles in the screensaver and the spacebar to go read the story on the web.

Of course, all of these cool new tools work with NewsGator great free online reader, and, as mentioned before, NewsGator even have a super-fast new beta online reader that you can test out today as well.

Cheers ~ Arne
