Portable Desktop Ticker 18.104.22.1688
This is the portable counterpart of Desktop Ticker, and thus the installation process is not a must. By placing the program files to a removable storage unit (e.g. USB flash drive), it is possible to run this utility on any machine you can get ahold of.
Another notable piece of information when it comes to portable apps, is that the Windows registry is not going to suffer any changes, and nor will the Start menu/screen.
Add news feeds and customize settings
The interface is minimal and non-obtrusive, while this software tool enables you to add new feeds. This can be done manually, by inputting a website’s link, or automatically by importing OPML, XML and TXT files from the hard drive. Feed lists can also be exported to the aforementioned formats, for safekeeping.
Aside from that, you can easily control the frame’s opacity, dock it to the top or bottom of the screen or let it float. The speed and direction of the information can also be adjusted, while from the settings panel you can change the color scheme, text size, update and reload time (expressed in minutes), and the item order can be established according to the alphabet, newest or oldest news and the list goes on.
CPU and memory usage is minimal and thus the computer’s performance is not going to be hampered. Response time is good and the interface is intuitive and unobtrusive. Taking all of this into consideration, we can safely say that Portable Desktop Ticker is a reliable and efficient piece of software.
