NewsGator took a big step forward this week, making all their consumer products free.
As a professional news watcher (it’s part of my job description), I bought into NewsGator, over free RSS products. I have to pass through thousands of articles a day to stay on the top of the game… and that means I need a comprehensive solution.
And, NewsGator has delivered that for years, providing synced platforms from my Mac, to my PC, to Windows Mobile, BlackBerry, and even my iPhone. I never have to go through the same article twice… and with thousands of articles a day, duplicates are painful.
NewsGator is now offering all their products free, including NetNewsWire, FeedDemond and their mobile products. NewsGator is focusing on revenue from corporate ventures, and ad-support on their online viewer. Hopefully, they’ll remain profitable, and if not, Google could use some desktop-and-mobile RSS dominance.
