Desktop Ticker 1.9.2.304

A simple-to-use and powerful program that helps you view your favorite feeds scrolled on your screen, while allowing you to import the list with URLs from OPML, XML, or plain text files
Desktop Ticker is a lightweight software application whose purpose is to help users keep an eye on their favorite news.

The tool sports a clean and intuitive layout that allows you to set up the dedicated parameters with minimum effort.

Desktop Ticker is able to display the article titles, which scroll across the screen, and summaries when you hover the mouse cursor over the desired title.

Additionally, you can read the entire article in your default web browser by simply clicking on its title.

What’s more, you are allowed to scroll backward or forward, add new feeds to the list by inserting valid URLs, manage the article order by moving the feeds up or down, edit the stock symbols, as well as import the list with URLs from OPML, XML, or plain text file.

Other important features worth mentioning are represented by the possibility to move the main window to the top or bottom part of the screen, set the opacity level, select the speed (slower or faster), and pick the scrolling direction (right to left, left to right).

Last but not least, you are allowed to insert a “Reload” button into the primary window for helping you refresh data with just one click, add and remove RSS feeds, copy the text or link to the Clipboard, email the article using your default client, as well as jump to a particular article.

When it comes to configuration settings, it is possible to pick the updating time, show all items, recent and new articles, or only new items, pick the background color scheme and size, and select a sound for notifications.

During our testing we have noticed that Desktop Ticker displays data very quickly, and no errors showed up throughout the entire process. It is quite friendly with system resources, so the overall performance of the computer is not burdened.

As a conclusion, Desktop Ticker proves to be a reliable RSS feed application that comes packed with a hand set of features. Thanks to its intuitive layout, it is suitable for all types of users, regardless of their experience level.
