NewsGator syncs Windows RSS platform into its cloud

NewsGator just released NewsGator Desktop Sync in beta. The Windows application sits in your desktop tray and keeps your feeds, folders, and item read states synchronized between NewsGator Online and the Windows RSS Platform. NewsGator Online may be viewed in a web browser or synchronized to your mobile phone, Mac, Windows Media Center, or other applications hooked into NewsGator Online.

NewsGator Desktop sync connects Windows PCs running the Windows RSS Platform present in Internet 7 and above. Synchronization is like a personal teleporter for your feed data, breaking up your data into many tiny bits capable of being reassembled wherever you would like to go. Desktop sync allows NewsGator to connect the siloed Windows RSS Platform to its own teleportation device, retransmitting the bits to any application using the NewsGator API.

    Thanks, Niall. Question – will this work with Onfolio?

    Actually, do you have any idea what’s going on with Onfolio? Email to the team isn’t being answered – at least not my emails!.

    I really like Onfolio – I hope it’s not “going away” – but the silence isn’t comforting!

    It will work with Onfolio if they store items in the Windows RSS Platform present in IE 7.

    Ah well. Just tried it. Doesn’t work :(.

    It synchs with the IE7 RSS feeds, not the Onlfolio ones. Too bad, since I really like reading RSS feeds via Newsgator in Windows Media Center – but I rarely do it because it gets everything out of synch.

    Ah well, in time I hope MS fixes this (and does it in some fashio other than killing Onfolio!)
