About FeedsAnywhere

FeedsAnywhere came about after my brother Chad and I joined forces to combine projects we were working on individually. In 2004 I began part time development of a program to rate web articles based on the interests of each individual user. At some point a RSS/Atom front end was added and I used the program as my personal feed reader for the next few years.

Fast forward to 2007. Chad decided the existing mobile feed readers were inadequate as they didn't support all the features of their desktop brethren. He asked if I wanted to combine our efforts and FeedsAnywhere was born.

For those that aren't familiar with feed readers they provide an easy way to follow news on most web sites including The New York Times, Slashdot, and CNN. Also, Yahoo has a news feed for every stock. You can even get local news via many local papers. Just subscribe to a feed and then check FeedsAnywhere to see what's new at all of the web sites you want to follow. This saves time as you only visit individual web sites when a story interests you.

As a further time saver FeedsAnywhere learns the type of news you are interested in. After a little while using FeedsAnywhere you'll start to see news stories show up on the interesting page. I bookmark this page and check it before checking individual news feeds. It's a great time saver.

Whether you consume your news feeds on a computer like a PC or Mac or read on the go via iPhone, Android, or Blackberry I'll think you'll find FeedsAnywhere to be useful.
