Where can I find a feed reader that simply sits in the systray?

Asked by Flayra (6points) March 27th, 2008

I need a feed parser that sites in the systray and simply notifies me whenever a new entry is added to any of the feeds I subscribe to. If anyone knows TBNotify, I want something similar (except for RSS/Atom/etc feeds)

I like Feed Demon on the PC. Alas, it only (optionally) pops a hovering window, not just a system tray icon update to alert the user to new entries.

Actually, I take that back!

Feed Demon does indeed change its icon when a new entry arrives; it super-imposes a little envelope on its representative icon in the systray. No need to enable the “desktop alert” functionality I described earlier.

So, there ya go!

Check out our product, Eluma. Of the many things it does, you can just have it sit in the systray, and configure it so that when you have a new item in a feed, it blinks to let you know that you have a new alert. You can also have a scrolling ticker on the bottom of your screen, or a pop-up window for the alerts. You can subscribe to multiple feeds, and you can have one central system for letting you know whenever there’s a new item. Lots of other stuff you can do with it. Thanks!
