Bloop has released Fresh Feed and Fresh Feed Pro lightweight news notifiers for Mac OS X. Select some of your RSS or Atom feeds and each time new information arrives, Fresh Feed Pro will inform you with a sound alert. You can quickly read the title and the source of the news and if you want to read more, it's possible to delve into the subject matter by viewing a preview from a pop up menu - with a simple click.
Once you have read the news in detail you can share it on Twitter, Facebook or directly open the web page associated with the article. Fresh Feed can even read the title of the feed through the special option "Speech" so that way you can carry on with your work without interruption.
The version Pro boasts exclusive features like the possibility to add feeds from Google Reader and from whatever browser by right click on the URL, visualize article previews - options for a completely personalized application.
With the Version Pro a new scroll bar menu has been introduced which is faster and more efficient, with Magic Trackpad support. Moreover, support for Atom feeds has been added and the RSS feeds have been improved. The application has been tested on 32/64 bit processors to improve from the incompatibilities discovered.
