Feed Notifier - Keep up with your RSS or other feeds
Review by on
From simple blog posts to events which affect the whole world, we can be kept up to date with anything, thanks to RSS feeds. With a few clicks of the mouse, we can stay in touch with anything that may happen or anything someone may say. It sounds simple enough, but it can be even simpler with Feed Notifier. When there is something new to read in your RSS or Atom feed, the program will notify you with a pop up message.

Installing Feed Notifier will be a swift process. The installer is less than 7 Mb large, which can be downloaded fairly quick with any average connection. You will have to navigate through a standard setup wizard which will only require an installation path. The software does not require too many system resources and it can run on most Windows editions.

Feed Notifier will run as a system tray icon and all you have to do is to specify a feed URL. The new feed option can be found in a context menu, after right clicking the system tray icon, and it will bring up a two-step wizard. After pasting a URL in a small dialog, you can set a title for the feed, specify a link and, most important, you can set the polling interval. You can have the application check the feed for new items every second or every day. You can also set a color for the pop up's border. Thus, you can associate a color for each feed, which should make things clearer when receiving notifications. When a pop up appears, you can just click the article's title and you will be taken to its page with your default web browser.

After right clicking the system tray icon, you can also access Feed Notifier's preferences panel. Here you will find a list of all the inserted feeds and you can edit or delete them at any time. A series of toolbar buttons will let you switch to different sets of options. Pop ups can be further customized by changing their fonts, how much time they will stay visible and much more. It is also possible to add filters in order to include, exclude certain words or have the application search in certain fields. It may sound a bit complicated, but you will be provided with an example which will make things clearer.

Pros:
The application will notify you with pop up messages each time one of your feeds is updated. The involved options are very straightforward and easy to understand. In short, Feed Notifier's simplicity and efficiency make it an ideal tool for keeping track of RSS or other feeds.

Cons:
There is only one minor inconvenience: while the preferences panel is open, clicking the pop up message will not do anything.

Feed Notifier requires very little effort from your part in order to help you keep up with the latest news or your friend's posts.
