The Bottom Line
Unfortunately, Squeet is no longer available.
- Squeet sends RSS feeds as emails, integrating them well and automatically with other incoming items
- Subscriptions are comfortably edited using a web interface
- Squeet lets you pick a delivery schedule (items arrive as a digest) or sends news as it happens
- Squeet does not allow you to collect, read and edit feeds in groups
- More flexible digests (twice a day, per 10 items from any feed,...) would be nice
- Squeet news emails could be more visually appealing
- Squeet delivers RSS and Atom news feeds via email.
- Items can be sent individually as they arrive or as a digest.
- Daily and weekly schedules are possible, and you can always tell Squeet manually to send a feed.
- You can pause delivery of individual feeds, or halt delivery of all items at any time.
- Squeet imports subscriptions from and exports to OPML files.
- When subscribing, Squeet has shortcuts for news, stock symbol and download searches.
Guide Review - Squeet - RSS Feed via Email Reader
Squeet will deliver news headlines and blog posts — podcasts and other feeds with enclosures are supported in a rudimentary manner as links — to your email Inbox. There, you can apply all the filtering and labeling and sorting and searching your email program can muster.
Squeet can either deliver news almost instantaneously as individual emails or intelligently and clutter-proof as a digest on your schedule. Weekly and daily delivery times are possible, but more flexibility — delivering twice a day or every dozen new items, for example — would be nice.
Speaking of nicety and neatness, the plain text version of Squeet emails beats the HTML message in these respects. While richer and preferred in theory, news items turned rich emails by Squeet could look at bit crisper.
It's also a pity that the otherwise excellent online subscription management of Squeet does not allow collecting feeds into groups, which could be delivered as a digest or put on hold in one go, for example. A digest of all or a group's news delivered several times a day might be a great addition to a great service, too.
