NewsGator Technologies, Inc. has announced the availability of FeedDemon 2.5 for Microsoft Windows. This latest version taps into the sharing and synchronizing power of the NewsGator Online platform and brings enhanced features such as offline reading, secure video playing, and configurable desktop alerts.
“The latest version of FeedDemon is incredibly fast and powerful and enables people to quickly and easily sort through massive amounts of information – from podcasts and Web videos to blogs and news feeds,” said Nick Bradbury, creator of FeedDemon and architect of client products at NewsGator. “With FeedDemon 2.5, we’ve added several new features that appeal to business users, news junkies and people just getting exposed to social media. It makes it easy to quickly read, manage and share content.”
Building on the 2.0 and 2.1 releases in 2006, FeedDemon 2.5 now works with the NewsGator Online platform with even wider integration, Users can synchronise and share their news bins by copying a post or drag-and-dropping a hyperlink from an external browser, essentially creating their own news feed that they can then share with friends or colleagues. The news bins synchronize with NewsGator’s enterprise solutions, NewsGator Enterprise Server and NewsGator Enterprise On-Demand, so that users can now make enterprise Clippings using FeedDemon 2.5.
Additionally, enhanced visibility allows users to see what the most popular topics are for both NewsGator as a whole and for their personal feeds. Now with a single click, users can find out the most popular topics of discussion on the Internet and can discover who in the blogosphere is linking to a specific post.
