Setting Contexts

I’ve made a change…

Posted in NetNewsWire, NewsGator, productivity, Pukka, RSS by jquig99 on July 11, 2007

I’ve changed my NewsReader from NewsFire to NetNewsWire. Again – using a newsreader has changed me from an instant-gratification girl to one that enjoys the anticipation.

What I love:
– using just the space bar, I can fly through my (137 at last count) feeds
– I can “clip” articles I want to save
– I can post to this blog or my del.icio.us account(w/my Pukka account)

From the website:
– New! Desktop integration – Spotlight, Address Book, iCal, iPhoto, Growl, Twitterific and more.
– New! Great new look – improved combined view, feed “cover art”, full-screen mode, and tabs with thumbnails and animations.
– New! Performance enhancements – all new article storage system, memory optimization, and more.
– New! Synchronized clippings – read your saved articles from the web or another NewsGator reader.
– New! Microformat detection for contacts and calendar events.
– New! Automatic checking for newer versions of the software.
– Automatic download of podcasts and transfer to iTunes.
– Smart lists to aggregate news from your feeds based on criteria.

It automatically downloads my new OmniFocus builds and my podcasts. The Online component (NewsGator), let’s me access my feeds and clippings from any computer.

NetNewsWire has a Support section, Forums and Resource feeds. It’s been a terric pleasure working with this app for the last couple of weeks. Maybe it’ll inspire me to edit my feeds (not likely!)…

Also – read the blog!
