It is likely that there are a number of web sites you visit on a regular basis - perhaps several times a day - to see whether any new stories have been posted; this is often the case with news web sites and blogs. RSS feeds make it possible to be alerted whenever new content is added to a site, and recent versions of web browsers such as Internet Explorer and Firefox enable users to subscribe to feeds. While this is useful when just a few feeds are involved, a dedicated tool allows for a far greater degree of control.
FeedDemon can be synchronised with Google Reader which means that the program can be used on multiple computers and each will be automatically kept up to date. New feeds can be easily added to the program and before long you will have amassed a large collection of sites whose feeds you are subscribed to. To make these easier to manage, feeds and individual posts can be tagged to allow for searching and filtering and 'watches' can be configured so you will be alerted whenever a post containing chosen keywords appears.
FeedDemon can also be used to manage podcasts, automatically downloading the latest posts from web sites you have subscribed to before copying them to your portal media device such as an iPod. Feeds can be checked on a customisable schedule, and you can choose which feeds you would like to be alerted about when the program is minimised - for example, when you are working, you may not want to be distracted by updates from forums and other web sites.
The advanced labelling options means that posts that meet criteria that you define can be flagged up in various ways. In turn, this means that posts you are likely to be more interested in can be highlighted for reading first. This is a comprehensive feed management tool which will revolutionise the way you interact with your favourite web sites.
