Desktop RSS reader for Windows – GreatNews

By on September 19, 2009 in Software with 1 Comment

Web-based RSS readers like Google reader etc. are always good when you are totally web savvy, and try to carry out everything through the browser itself, but when you use a desktop based app, the control and customization of the reader client is better than what you do in a website.

Earlier i had shared a couple apps, like NewsFire for Mac OS X and Readair which was an Adobe AIR app for mac and windows!
This is another nice and easy interface RSS reader for Windows – GreatNews

GreatNews is a desktop based RSS reader which has got all the features that one would need and expect to get the best experience in RSS feed reading on their desktop –

  • This is a lighter app than others like FeedDemon or ReadAir and eats less memory space when in use
  • Fast and easy updating of feeds in the reader
  • Full page reading
  • Different styles for reading the feeds
  • Categorize news articles with labels
  • Integrated internet browser, with tabs and popup blocking

More features –

  • Importing of opml feeds from other feed readers is possible
  • Customized search in particular feed or through the whole reader
  • Offline reading of the feeds possible
  • Locally saving of the feed articles possible
  • You can track the comments and statistics

The only thing i didn’t like about GreatNews is the very simple and non-attractive look, otherwise the reader rocks.

  1. I had used Readair before, but the Adobe AIR platform when open in the background to run the Readair app, it used to eat a lot of memory. This GreatNews might be a good alternative.
