Software News : eNewsReader r2 released
Posted by ChrisH on 2017/6/18 22:13:49 (562 reads) News by the same author
Software News

This new release removes all demo/trial limitations, so that it is the full version.

Releasing it completely for free is an option I have always considered, and after a lot of thought (and seeing the limited interest in eNewsReader) I've concluded this is the best way to go. It does however mean that I won't be providing proper (commercial-level) support & updates, and instead only provide updates as & when I find the time & interest.



I hope that eNewsReader will provide people with an additional reason to use AmigaOS4 instead of Windows/etc

What does it do?
eNewsReader is a ground-breaking program for AmigaOS4, which allows you to easily keep track of tens (or even hundreds!) of news sources. You no-longer need to visit many websites every day or week, on the off-chance there might be something new. And by centralising all your news sources in one place, you will save masses of time, so it's great for people with busy lives. I created eNewsReader because of my frustration at how bad existing news readers were (such as Feedly & Digg Reader, never mind Facebook & Twitter themselves).

Why use it?
Not only does eNewsReader keep track of which news items you have read, it has a unique feature that I have not seen in any other news reader:
It also keeps track of what news items you have seen (but ignored as uninteresting).


Thanks to this unique feature, it's possible to follow a very large number of news sources, without loosing track of which news items you've already seen. This means you won't waste a lot of time trying to find the start of the stuff you haven't seen yet (assuming you could even remember!). And you can read different news feeds when you feel like it, rather than needing to check everything at the same time (due to it all getting lumped together by say Facebook or Twitter).

As well as following the (RSS & Atom) news feeds of websites & blogs (like most news readers can), you are also able to follow people & companies on Twitter, and follow friends, groups & companies on Facebook.

You will need to give eNewsReader permission to access your Timeline posts on Facebook, as well as your list of Friends, then you can then easily:
* See when someone posts on your Timeline.
* See when someone posts on a public group (on Facebook).
* See when a company posts on their Facebook page.
* You can also follow what your friends post on their Timeline, but they will first need to give eNewsReader permission to access their Timeline.

The news feeds of different websites vary. Some give you a summary of the news item, and then expect you to open a link to their website to read the full thing, while others provide the whole news item, in which case you can read it without having to leave eNewsReader. You will also need to visit the website to see any pictures or click on any links inside the news item.

In the case of Facebook, while you can read complete posts from eNewsReader, if you wish to reply or post a comment, then you will need to open the link to Facebook's website. And you will need to use the Odyssey web browser, so that eNewsReader can login to Facebook.
