Feedbook 220.127.116.11 Beta
Visually appealing and easy to use interface
The application's main window is split into two adjustable sections. One is the news provider browser, where you first select the website after which all headlines are displayed by days. The other is an extended view featured with a zoom slider to adjust the text size so you comfortably read events of interest.
Design makes navigation pleasant and easy, the contrasting colors combine well and you are left with a good impression overall. There is even an integrated search engine that allows you to easily find entries, but it only applies to the selected website, slightly limiting possibilities.
Add preferred news feed sites and manage favorites
By default you are given access to a couple of news sources. However, if you consider information being irrelevant, the application gives you the possibility to add news feed sites your prefer.
Moreover, a category view offers a different approach on searching, giving you the possibility to find domains of interest easier. These can be added to a favorites group to constantly check on them. Furthermore, latest news bring up a notification box near the system tray, with the new entry.
Taking everything into consideration, we can say that Feedbok is a handy application to have around if you don't want to miss a thing that's happening around the world. It cleverly blends in with any desktop and the pop-up notification box makes sure you stay updated to the second.
