NewsGator Online – Free Consumer Edition Released Today

NewsGator released a new version of NewsGator Online – their web-based RSS aggregator.

This version is free to consumers and includes new features including folders (manage all your feeds the same way you do in Outlook), per-post rating system, feed recommendations based on what you read, clippings (to save your favorite posts with one click), and smart feed enhancements including converting email-based alerts to RSS.

NewsGator Online includes subscription level synchronization with NewsGator Outlook Edition, allowing you to manage one set of feeds across multiple machines (I have four different computers, plus the web version with synchronized feeds.) As a result, I don’t have to worry about making sure my feeds are the same on all machines – whenever I change something on one machine (in Outlook or on the web), it synchronizes to the other machines.

There are lots of other cool features – along with a bunch of UI improvements – and more premium content relationships.

Check it out and tell us what you think.

    So, is this a “get ’em hooked for a low price to see what we have to offer” offering?. Or is it a “we can’t make money from individuals so lets capture market offering?”

    Just curious. In either case, I’m totally hooked (addicted, actually). This stuff is waaaay cool.


  • Very cool to see that NGOS is now FOC (I guess that bloglines hooking up with FeedDemon kind of forced this).
    I have just enabled hooked my NewsGator on my NGOS subscription, and I have a couple of suggestions:
    1- Read/Unread marks need to be synchronized across all instances of Outlook Newsgators and the NGOS Web RSS reader. It does not seem to be the case (even with the option of downloading already downloaded/read posts turned on). My use case is that I want my full database of RSS posts available on my different PCs.
    2- After synchronizing two different PCs (and instances of Outlook NG) with NGOS, the resulting feed list and folders on NGOS looks strange. The syncronization might need to be bullet-proofed.
    3- I have arranged my feeds according to a folder structure in Outlook. I’d want the same structure to be replicated across the different instances.

    Great move.
