Joe Chiu, who works on the Microsoft Surface team at Microsoft, has developed an RSS/podcast client for Windows Mobile phones in his spare time. The app is called FeedMe and it’s a lightweight and easy-to-use client for both Professional (PocketPC) and Standard (smarthphones) Windows Mobile devices. Not only does FeedMe let you syndicate podcasts, feeds, and photostreams, it can also help you find interesting feeds to subscribe to with its “Discover Feed” option. With this, you can discover the feed from any external web site, for example. You can also subscribe to keywords or searches.
As mentioned above, FeedMe can also be used to view photostreams like those from photo-sharing sites Flickr and Zooomr. To do so, just enter in the photostream URL into the app and you can then view the photos in a slideshow.
Other FeedMe features include the following:
- Support for RSS, RDF, and Atom feed formats
- View feed content in full HTML fidelity with pictures
- Supports MP3/WMA podcasts (Also supports streaming WMA)
- Download Manager: Allows you to view the progress of current downloading podcasts
- Downloaded Podcast channel allows you to view all your downloaded podcasts easily
- Today folder, Watch folder (find content with certain keywords)
- Cache all the content for seamless reading experience
- Play all downloaded podcasts in a playlist in Downloaded Podcast channel
- Pick a feed from an OPML file (You can open the OPML file from local device or from a URL)
- Options to automatically download latest episodes of a podcast and purge old files
