Feedling Feed Reader Puts Feeds on Your Table, Um, Desktop

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  April 28, 2010

Web addicts rejoice: you can now view your feeds right on your desktop. Or should I say right over your desktop. Open source program Feedling lets Windows users pin headlines over their wallpaper. The location, font, colors and update interval of the feeds can be customized.


Looks like that poor dog is confused by the feeds. I can’t test the program myself since I’m on a Mac (without Parallels), but I think that you’ll need to sweep your icons off of your desktop and use an application launcher instead if you want to use Feedling, otherwise you might have a hard time selecting both feeds and icons.

Feedling has been tested on Windows XP, Vista and 7, and is available at SourceForge. Check out MakeUseOf for detailed instructions on setting up Feedling.
