Newsgator Go! is a go for mobile feed reading

Newsgator_goHey, what’s the big idea? We work hard on a mobile-friendly feed and now Newsgator comes out with Newsgator Go! for mobile feeds. Well, in their defense, the Windows Mobile 2003 / 5.0 software lets you read ALL of your feeds on a mobile device. But wait, our feed is free! Oh wait…they have a 30 day free trial download so you can try it before spending $29.95 for the license. Yeah? Well ours synchs ALL of your feeds stored in the Newsgator family of products…no…actually, that’s their functionality, not ours after all.

While you go an download the free trial (like I just did), I’m going to hang my head in shame now. Go ahead…carry on your mobile RSS day without me…sniff, sniff.

  1. I have been using a combination of Bloglines and Egress to handle RSS feeds and have been satisfied with it.

    When I read about Newsgator Go!, and its synchronization with the web version of Newsgator I decided to give it a try. I subscribed to all of my blogline feeds in Newsgator web and then loaded NG on a 2 GB SD card in my iPaq 2415.

    I could only get maybe 25% of my 75 feeds loaded before the program quit. I tried this several times but could never get it to load any more.

    Anyone know if this is a feature of the demo version? Until I know more I removed the program from my iPaq.

  2. It frustrates me to no end that programs like this, which would probably be freeware on a PC, are almost always pay to play on a Pocket PC. Is it because PDAs are viewed as the tools of a well-paid professional instead of being for the every-man who wants more than just music on the go?
