Crystal Ball

September 20th, 2006

So, how did Oliver and Blake at MobileCrunch and Mike and Marshall at TechCrunch know about the launch of NewsGator Go! before I did?  That just doesn’t seem right ;) Hah, they must have a crystal ball.

Seriously, I am psyched to announce the release of NewsGator Go and am really glad that these folks picked up the story!  I hope it opens up the eyes of some customers who may not recognize the power of RSS coupled with mobile devices.  If you have a Windows Mobile device you have to try this application.  It will add a whole new dimension to your mobile experience.  A ton of effort has gone into making the mobile RSS experience enjoyable and into making NewsGator Go! a must have tool in your arsenal.

 If you are new to RSS but a Windows Mobile user, then I promise you, getting the latest news and information on your device is invaluable.  If you are all over RSS and in the market for a new device, take a look at Windows Mobile.  These devices are awesome.

And for all you other mobile users with smart devices, that are not Windows Mobile, we haven’t forgotten about you.  We will be launching an awesome reader into beta real soon that will be just what the doctor ordered.  Finally, I have been working on a skunk work project that has the promise of bring RSS to everyone… more on that soon!

Take a look at the NewsGator site for all the details on NewsGator Go! and if you want to see what the application can do for you, there is a 30 day trial, so please give it a Go!

    […] Kevin’s right in my opinion. I have tried a few mobile RSS readers and they’re not that useful to me. Basically, on my mobile device I only want to see unread items (based on my desktop). I use NetNewsWire and what I really want to see on my phone is my most important feeds, but only unread items. Unforutnately (for this purpose), I use a BlackBerry, so I’ll have to keep waiting. Go! only works on Windows Mobile devices. I switched to a T-Mobile MDA about 6 months ago and hated it so much that I had to switch back to my Blackberry. So I hope that when Kevin hints around about future support for other devices on his blog, he’s thinking about the Blackberry too. Then, I would use Go! (and pay for it). Posted by David Cohen | […]

    Hey Kevin, great work on NewsGator Go! I’ve been eagerly awaiting the release for quite some time, and am a huge fan of your new(ish) employers. (NewsGator) After using the new release for a couple of days I’ve found at least one bug and I have several feature requests. Nick Bradbury of FeedDemon has forums for end-users to discuss bugs/requests/features/etc and I was wondering if you had something similar? Thanks so much for your time, best of luck to you!

    Glad you found the forums and definitely let me know about any defects you find and features you’d like to see on the forum!

    Have you done any marketing at all for Newsgator Go! ? I’ve seen very little mention of it in the online Windows Mobile community and I suspect many people do not even know it exists.

    It seems a shame to spend development costs on such an important product and then not get the word out.

    (Let me know if you need some help/suggestions)

    Hey Andrew… I am all ears. Definitely would love to hear and thoughts, ideas, or suggestions you have. Thanks Andrew!
