Feed Demon review

Sorry about the lack of activity but with job searching, a housemate moving out and a whole lot of other completely un-related to war hammering I have barley had the chance to keep up with internet activity so first on the list FeedDemon review!

FeedDemon is a RRS feed program that keeps track of all updates that you've subscribed to (Including the 'Follow' option on blogs) in an easy way to manage and great way of seeing who's updated and how many times since you last read it.

This is what is looks like when you load it up, the latest 10 posts up there and other general stuff, on the left is your taskbar lets have a closer look
This sidebar shows every single blog you're following and in brackets the number of times it has updated since you last read it. When you click on the blog you get this pannel
by clicking on the little arrow it extends the full story in the program (although BOLS have rigged it so you need to visit the site to read the whole story) which you can do by clicking the title, which it can then act as a mini browser looking like this:
Pros: Lets you keep up to date and lessens the chance of missing a post and is easy to use

Cons: The problem of no comments will be increased as there is no option without entering the browser mode, and it occasionally skips a blog when updating

Try it out, see if you like it but make sure you comment! It frustrates blog owners when they don't get appreciation or praise from their fellow blogmates make sure you do it!
