Newsgator switches business model, launch new products

Newsgator today launched new versions of Newsgator Outlook RSS plugin, FeedDemon RSS Desktop reader, NetNewsWire for Mac and FeedStation podcasting client.

The entire Newsgator website, including Newsgator Online, sports a new design that is much simple and less confusing than the previous design. And in a major strategy shift, Newsgator has dropped the subscription model and switched to one-time fee based price model.

Newgator Inbox, formerly known as Newgator Outlook edition v2.6, downloads images and related files for reading feeds offline. Read how Newsgator Inbox compares with Attensa Outlook.

Newsgator Online web based RSS aggregator, like Google Reader or Bloglines (read comparison) has undergone several changes like support for feed icons and better feed management features. The premium version of Newsgator Online offers advanced feed syncronization and feed search features. Supports IE, Firefox, Opera and Safari web browsers.

FeedDemon 2.0 is the next major update after FeedDemon v1.6. FeedDemon 2.0 has better performance and includes FeedStation 2.0, a podcasting receiver. FeedDemon now synchronizes with NewsGator Online and the rest of the NewsGator RSS Suite.

NetNewsWire, FeedDemon or NewsGator Inbox are available individually at a one time fee of $29.95. Newsgator has abolished all the subscription pricing plans.
