RSS Central for Windows

RSS Central is a powerful and easy to use application that can download and display RSS, Atom and RDF news feeds from web sites all over the internet. Its quick multi-download system will bring all the news feeds you want to your fingertips in no time, and will hold on to them so that they can be read even if you lose your internet connection.

RSS Central features an attractive and informative user interface, a feed search to discover new news sources, article summary and full web page displays, article search tools, a live tile with article spotlights, read/unread article tracking, support for international characters, article sharing and emailing support, portrait and landscape support, plus a whole lot more.

RSS Central's trial mode is fully featured, and just displays occasional "nag" screens while using the application. Please give it a try and see what you think.

The Windows version of RSS Central is based upon my Windows Phone version which has been received with overwhelmingly positive reviews. The Windows version has an entirely new design and layout, with all new graphics and a completely reconsidered navigation model to take advantage of the larger screen size. I am confident that you'll find RSS Central to be a quick and powerful way to access your news feeds!

I intend to continue developing and enhancing RSS Central, so if you have any comments, suggestions, complaints or bug reports, please add them to RSS Central's UserVoice page or contact me and let me know.

Windows RSS Central is available now from the Windows Store
