Guide Review - Jyte 1.9 - RSS News Feed Reader
You can subscribe to a search instead of an individual feed. Jyte then aggregates matching news from feeds found around the web automatically. Local search might still be useful, though, and it would be great if searches were more flexible and more precise, allowing you to specify a set feeds to search (through an OPML file), for example.
Jyte's interface is bare and functional, but it has another trick up its sleeve: with a simple menu command, you can save Jyte's state. Later, you can retrieve the state — the folder setup, saved articles — from any Jyte on any computer, solving the synchronization problem easily.
Still, a bit more comfort would be really nice to have in Jyte. With all the search functionality, Jyte could render blog post relations, for example, it would be nice if feeds and searches could be grouped, and HTML rendering in the news item display wouldn't hurt either.
