Windows Mobile is an operating system which installed for smartphone or pocket pc device. Until now, the version of Windows Mobile is 6.1. I like very much using the handheld communication device with Windows Mobile OS. On of my reason to use it because there are so many software related to this operating system. We can find any kind of software from freeware until shareware.
This article will talk about RSS at Windows Mobile. What is RSS? RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. This is the specific way to write a header of information. The format of RSS will be transfer to open at web base or open at specialize RSS reader software. To write the information for RSS format, we have to follow the RSS writing format, we can write anything as a header and anything as a detail body. Usually RSS only write header and simple information (resume) about the content. To read the whole content, the reader have to click the main URL link to open website at web browser like usual.
After creating the RSS, we have to create a RSS file which can access from Internet, so anyone can open the content of that RSS, sometimes it knows as RSS Feed. Since Windows Mobile now already act almost identical with computer (especially for web browsing), than we can also open and read the RSS from Windows Mobile.
There are a lot of kind RSS reader for Windows Mobile, at my i600, the RSS software already package together with the system. If we don't like to use the default RSS software, we still can try to download others, and try to make sure which one match with what we need. Usually, all of the RSS software have same for download and read RSS feed. But the difference is about how to display and customizing user interface.
By default, I've been quite satisfied with the default existing RSS software of i600. But I also ever try to download the trial version of Egress and SPB Insight. Both of that are shareware for download and read the RSS feed. If we are comparing both software is better than i600 default RSS software. But I more like Egress than SPB Insight, because at last version of SPB Insight, I can not automate the software to download RSS Feed at specific time. SPB Insight need our command to download the RSS. While the Egress software can automatically download RSS news in each period time that we already program. Maybe, the next version of SPB Insight will better and can accommodate what we need.
The RSS reader is a must for anybody who want to always get the latest information. Now, every news website has been providing RSS News Feed, so we can become faster and easier get the summary of news information without have to go to the website. But if we interested with one of the information, we can get more content by click the link to go to the main news page.
