What can you use the app for?

Feedingo provides users with a new way to manage their RSS feeds. The application offers a neat interface that is easy to use and can help users swallow large quantities of content in smaller bites. Better organization of feeds can also reduce the amount of time needed to sort through them. Through Feedingo, users can create groups that pull related feeds together. Sorting options allow users to hide posts that have already been read or sort them by age to look for the beginning of a blog or other content. Social network sharing buttons allow users to pass on a particularly interesting fed with others they think might like to see it. Feedingo gives users quick access to their Twitter, Facebook, Delicious and email contacts to pass a feed along.

What is the history and popularity of the app?

Feedingo was created in 2010 by Aaron Pepper. Pepper is a web developer based out of Ottawa in Ontario, Canada. Feedingo was created because Pepper believed that the task of reading feeds should not feel like work. Being a user experience expert, Pepper went to work creating a tool that would make it easier on the user to manage, organize and share their feeds.

Feedingo.com was shut down in 2010.

What are the differences to other apps?

Feedingo can do a lot with feeds. Many people access numerous feeds each day, some even more frequently. Feeds can share a lot of content in a very short time, but this can become overwhelming to an individual. Feedingo gives users a way to control their feeds and avoid that feeling of drowning in new posts.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

Feedingo was created using a stylish blue and white color scheme that is highlighted but the fun, comical dingo icon found throughout the site. The application is very attractive and its appearance makes it even more functional. Users can read a snippet of each new post accompanied by the source and the logo associated with it. Sorting by groups make it even easier to get the content the user wants right when they want it.

How does the registration process work?

A new use can begin creating a Feedingo account by clicking on the green “Sign up” button at the top right hand corner of the homepage. The clean registration form requires a username, valid email address and password. Clicking the green “Create Account” button at the bottom to submit the information automatically verifies that the user agrees to the site’s privacy policy and terms of service.

What does it cost to use the application?

Users are given three Feedingo membership plans to choose from. The first is the baseline free membership. This account is free forever and allows the user to monitor and organize up to 10 feeds. Users who choose the free account must be active every 90 days or their membership may be removed without notice. Next is the Pro Account which upgrades to 50 feeds and costs around $5 per month or about $25 per year. The most expensive account is the Ultra Account. This membership allows up to 100 feeds and costs around $10 per month or $50 per year. Both of the paid memberships remove advertising and help support Feedingo.

Who would you recommend the application to?

Feedingo is an affordable, helpful tool for anyone who deals with many feeds each day. Users who monitor only a few feeds may be less concerned about paying for an account. Anyone who is a frequent feed reader can really appreciate the utility in an application like Feedingo.
