Some of these programs can display the news through a ticker that can be displayed on top of other windows, so you can read the news while you do other things as well.
You used to relax in the morning with a warm cup of coffee, reading your favorite blog, until your life took over and changed everything.
Just check off the feeds that you want the ticker to display.
You can also customize the appearance and location of the ticker in the “Tools” submenu.
It’s a tad annoying that you have to add feeds individually – there’s no way to import feed lists – but this is a small drawback to deal with given how useful the app is once you’ve got it loaded up with your favorite feeds.
Feed Notifier actually goes out and identifies the Feed Title and Feed Link details and autofills the next form for you.
Back to the very popular ticker format, Desktop Ticker is another one that does it well.
Unlike News RSS Ticker, this one has smaller text and takes up a smaller footprint on the desktop.
The beauty of this is that you can use the various section feeds from news sites like CNN, and totally tailor the type of news that gets displayed on your desktop RSS ticker tape display.
News RSS Ticker actually comes preloaded with a good-sized list of news feeds from around the web, but if you want to add more, you can also add individual feeds and enable them to display by clicking on the checkbox next to the feed title.
In this article, I’m going to cover four of the best tools to deliver RSS feed updates directly to your desktop, either through RSS tickers, or from alert boxes that display feed information right inside and scroll automatically.
This way, during your workday, you can just glance over at the streaming updates and if a topic catches your eye, you can click on it and bookmark the article to read later, during your lunch break or after work.
All you have to do is tweak the polling speed and the display box border color if you want, and then finish the Add Feed wizard.
