Freed Demon!

January 9th, 2008 by

Newsgator has announced that a bevy of their RSS/Atom clients, including the excellent FeedDemon is now free:

FeedDemonFeedDemon 2.6, NetNewsWire 3.1, Inbox 3.0 (beta), and NewsGator Go! for Windows Mobile 2.0. Each of these is a pretty major release on its own – tons of new features in all of them.

But second, every one of those applications is now free! Free as in beer, that is. And add to the free list NewsGator Go! for BlackBerry as well. And not only are they free, but our online services (including synchronization) are now free as well! Not to mention our iPhone reader, HTML mobile reader, and all of the other applications that are part of our online platform.

Hat tip to CleverClogs for spotting the news.

    I read their explanation, and I suspect they need this new strategy to battle Google Reader and other free offerings.

    I used to use that at work, but really didn’t care much for the interface as compared to something like Omea Pro (which I currently use).

    Omea Pro also “recently” went free. Recently being a loose term – I can’t remember when it happened but it was within the last 12 months.

    there are so many readers to choose from – i picked one that also had news reader capabilities, and for me was easy to use. I also like the interface and readability.

    Now for mobile, I haven’t found one I like yet, so I will definitely try out the mobile rss reader and see if works on my blackjack II.
