New Quicknews Handheld RSS News Client

Stand Alone has released Quick News for the Palm OS platform, a powerful RSS News client for Palm Powered devices.

Quick News presents a list of feeds (web sites that offer RSS content) and then allows you to selectively (or automatically) download information from them. This is presented to you in one of several, easy to navigate display styles. Each story is broken out by its headline, making it a snap to scan for the highlights. Once you’ve narrowed in on a story that you’d like more detail on, Quick News lets you instantly jump over to your web browser to read more. Some RSS feeds offer attachments, such as sample Palm OS applications, podcasts, or audio commentaries; Quick News lets you download these with a tap, for immediate use or to store for later.

With Quick News, you can easily manage hundreds of feeds and instantly locate crucial and timely information from a sea of raw data. It’s a snap to categorize your feeds and group similar data sources together, then create custom searches that will allow you to instantly find all relevant articles on a certain topic. Set up automatic downloads so that your information is always up to date, no matter where you are. Think of your collected RSS feeds as an ever-updating library of customized information that’s automatically refreshed each day. An entire newsstand, right in your hand.

“Quick News takes advantage of the advanced capabilities of Palm OS designed to enable users to harness the power of RSS feeds,” said Larry Berkin, director of developer marketing, PalmSource, Inc.” We believe that the combination of Quick News and a Palm Powered smartphone truly empowers users by giving them instant and easy access to the latest headlines and breaking news from across the Web anytime, anywhere.”

Quick News has been optimized for today's newest internet-enabled handhelds, including the Treo 650 and Tungsten T5 and works with any device with Palm OS 4.0 or greater. Quick News is available for immediate download. It costs $14.95, and a free, fully-functional 30-day demo is available.

Actually an upgrade

Standalone had a pretty good product in Hand/RSS for palm, and this is basically loking like an upgrade. Tehir site says that if you registered you're copy of Hand/RSS, the demo code will work in the new verison, as they're not supporting the old any more.
