I have been trying out i-Fetch-information fetcher, a feed reader and aggregation programme, from our client Ideafarms that allows users to read RSS feeds (Atom and Rdf formats too) on the desktop.
The programme has some interesting features:
- An ‘integrated browser’ opens web pages inside the reader…
- While ‘Auto discovery’ ensures that I don’t have to click any additional buttons to look for RSS feeds
- Save a feed as a ‘Channel’ under the selected ‘Channel Group’
- The reader allows users to view ‘Articles’ by category; author; published; source; flagged; title; read…
- When I like something? I simply move it into ‘Archives’ for future reference – I find this quite useful
- The feature I love most however is ‘Watches’ which allows users to track conversations by keyword so all articles from feeds collected that have a certain or a set of keywords get separated under a given watch. I can add as many as I like…
Check it out! You can download i-Fetch here!
