I’ve been using FeedDemon 1.6 RC2 (the version that synchronizes with NewsGator Online) for the past two months as my feed reader. I monitor over 400 blogs a day and have found that FeedDemon is the only way I can handle this volume effectively. As an investor in NewsGator, I regularly use all the NewsGator products (very convenient since they almost all sync – NetNewsWire sync should be out soon for you Mac users – so I can easily switch between them.) I also play with many of the other aggregators to make sure I know what folks are up to. Nothing comes close to FeedDemon for high volume RSS feed reading / management.
Nick Bradbury – the creator of FeedDemon – has put up some teaser screens for FeedDemon 2.0. A number of the new features are aimed at helping with RAT (relevance / attention / trust) which is important for anyone dealing with a large number of feeds. NewsGator / Nick decided not to release 1.6 and go directly to 2.0 to take advantage of a number of new things coming in NewsGator Online.
If you are curious about FeedDemon 2.0, take a look at a few of the screens:
Unread feed view – yum. Awesome stuff Nick.
