About Desktop Ticker

 

Desktop Ticker is a free RSS and Atom web feed aggregator application that allows you to keep an eye on the latest news from your favourite websites whilst you work on your computer. Once feeds have been added, the article titles scroll horizontally across the screen. Article summaries are displayed when the mouse cursor is placed over an article title, and the full article can be opened in a web browser by clicking on the article title. The RSS feeds are automatically downloaded after the specified interval to show updated content.

 

Desktop Ticker

 

Options include specifying whether all articles are displayed from the RSS feed or just articles created within a set time period, colour coding articles based on their age, and adjusting the scroll speed.

 

Desktop Ticker can synchronize with the Windows Common Feed List, allowing the list of subscribed RSS feeds to be shared with other applications such as Internet Explorer, Windows Live Mail and Outlook.

 

Compatible with RSS feeds provided by news sites such as BBC News and CNN, and many other sites including Gmail, Facebook and Flickr. Also compatible with software such as Bugzilla and Jenkins continuous integration server. Click here to learn about RSS feeds.

 

In addition to RSS feeds, Desktop Ticker can also display selected stock information from Yahoo! Finance.
