As the name suggests, this is an RSS publisher. In effect, it enables the user to manage the publishing of RSS feeds over time and allows archiving of older feeds for future reference.
Pros: RSS Publisher 1.73 which makes the task of managing RSS feeds easy. It allows for automatic publishing, renewing and uploading of RSS feeds. The older/exisiting feeds (which are been taken off of your website) do not get over-written or deleted automatically as typically happens, but the RSS Publisher gives you the option of archiving them. This, in fact, is its best feature and the tool is worth it just for getting this task done acceptably. For publisher’s out there who would like this kind of archiving it will prove to be useful.
The actual publishing process is really streamlined so once you figure out what to do and setup the required “task” it is just a single button press that gets it done. A “smart backup” feature allows for a comparative (and therefore cumulative) archiving by archiving only those things that are different from what is already saved on your hard drive.
Cons: It features a poor interface and really needs improvement on that front. Although the program description does not say it the downloaded program actually installs under the banner of a “beta” version and it appears that that is what this program is. Some issues need to be sorted out – for example, the interface is not convenient and intuitive as the description says but is actually simple because few tasks can be performed; some tasks need the invocation of “task” menu to actually get the job done.
This product is aimed at semi-professionals (it is not really for beginners), but due to its limitations a lot of them will not find this useful and prefer to use something more advanced.
Overall: Possible 4 stars, because it is a useful tool and works well for managing of RSS feeds (especially archiving). However, 3 stars is recommended because this actually looks and feels like a “beta” and needs improvement.
