NewsGator Frees FeedDemon

NewsGator Frees FeedDemon

In an intriguing move that threatens to make FeedDemon ubiquitous, NewsGator has made the service freely available. While the idea of a free RSS reader may seem like old news, this is different as FeedDemon was already the most popular desktop reader when it was a pay service. Techies seem to love the feature-rich service, applauding its interface and ease of use. With all of the free options out there, however, many were beginning to feel that paying for a shinier RSS reader was just not worth it. By offering FeedDemon free, Newsgator hopes to bring more attention to its enterprise software.
A key feature of FeedDemon is synchronization. Fans of web based readers will get the best of both worlds – a fast and powerful desktop reader and a corresponding web-based reader that will be automatically linked to user accounts. The [company](http://nick.typepad.com/blog/2008/01/why-use-a-deskt.html) also touts the fact that users can choose not to synchronize certain feeds, adding a new layer of privacy that has recently caused some Google Reader users to [raise an eyebrow](http://www.techcrunch.com/2007/12/26/is-google-reader-sharing-too-much/).
Does this mean FeedDemon is better than all the other [options](http://mediabullseye.com/mb/2007/12/really-simple-guide-to-really.html)? Maybe, maybe not – but at least now you can [find out](http://www.download.com/3000-2164-10252579.html) without opening your pocketbook.
