NewsGator Now Offering RSS Reader for BlackBerry

NewsGator Technologies has launched an RSS reader for RIM’s BlackBerry handhelds and smartphones. This allows users to subscribe to the RSS feeds offered by many web sites — including Brighthand.

NewsGator Go! automatically reformats articles and links to accommodate limited bandwidth and screen size.

It also works with other RSS readers from this company. Articles marked as “read” on a mobile device will show up as “read” on other NewsGator applications, including FeedDemon, NetNewsWire, NewsGator Online and NewsGator Inbox.

In addition, this application allows users to send interesting articles to friends and co-workers via email from their mobile device.

This software sells for $29.95 or $14.95 if bought with any of NewsGator’s desktop readers

More information on NewsGator Go! can be found on its developer’s web site.
