I have tried several tools to read blogs and to publish on mine, I wanted to have one that combines all.


  • Newsgator

  • Newzcrawler

  • RSS Bandit

  • Sharpreader

I must admit that I always came back to Sharpreader but this might change after the test of Sauce Reader. I saw some options on some ohers that are missing like the possibility to get the newsgroups (something I would really like), to be able to post pictures directly to a ftp account. The tool looks good and is developed with .NET and lots of components:


  • log4net: File logging and tracing.


  • Lucene.NET: Search engine.

  • Microsoft application blocks for .NET:


  • SharpZipLib: Compression utilities.
