NewsGator Acquires Nick Bradbury

By Deane Barker on May 18, 2005

NewsGator buys syndication rival: Huh. Newsgator bought FeedDemon. I think these two are the best client-side (as opposed to Web-based) aggregators on the market right now — NewsGator is near-perfect integration into Outlook, and FeedDemon is IMHO the best standalone RSS client.

NewsGator plans to distribute Bradbury’s products, including FeedDemon and TopStyle, to its paid subscribers this summer for no additional charge. Nick Bradbury, the developer of both products, is expected to join NewsGator’s staff.

BTW, that NewsGator link from above was written two years ago, when I first discovered RSS. It’s interesting to read my first impressions of RSS again.
