wreckedcarzz - perhaps it's time to compile the apps and set up a poll? This is more for the community than for your app, but it would be very interesting!

Just to clarify, I meant compile a list of the apps mentioned in this thread and pick, say, the top 10 or 12 and then run a poll asking people to pick the top three from the list that they use...

yes, this would give a more accurate result since the earlier response included browsers (including myself), emails apps & etc..

o yeah 'talkshoe'.

Check it out for podcasting, it has a cool interface except for the chat.
But it's mainly for talking conference style.

Oh lord, I just opened up this topic after like a week of not looking at it... :'( ;D

Darwin, I will setup the poll after I determine the top few apps, apparantly I have another 2 pages worth of sorting to do to see what the top few are (probobly top 5, maybe top 10?).

I honestly didn't expect so many replies, but more is always better :up:

I use Opera, FeedDemon, and Post2Blog the most. Of those three FeedDemon is the only one that's not free, but in my opinion anyone that is addicted to RSS feeds needs a powerful feed reader like FeedDemon.

What does FeedDemon offer that Feed Reader doesn't?

Hi Tom, if you happen to read this (otherwise I'll just PM you... but... then... if you don't read this you won't know that... I wrote that I intend to PM you if you don't read this post, and... whatever...)... : what does this add-in do, and where can you get it?  :huh:
