Previously available as a public Beta - which launched late last year - only, AvantGo now released the final version of its RSS support for AvantGo. iAnywhere, a subsidiary of Sybase, Inc., today announced the general availability of RSS (Really Simple Syndication) features for its popular AvantGo mobile Internet service. With AvantGo for RSS, users can easily view mobile RSS subscriptions for free. AvantGo users can add any RSS feed to their account, without installing additional software, and then synchronize using a wireless or desktop Internet connection to receive the feed items in a format optimized for their device.

This release expands the content available through AvantGo by including the millions of RSS feeds offered by bloggers and major media. Now users can:

  • Easily sync and view new RSS items/articles
  • Save up to five RSS items per AvantGo RSS channel
  • Share photos, allowing users of photo sharing sites that offer photo feeds to use AvantGo as their mobile photo album
  • Personalize RSS channels to optimize feed subscriptions, set the maximum allowable size for the channel and whether or not to include images
  • Quickly subscribe to RSS channels on-the-fly with AvantGo’s AutoChannelä bookmarklet for RSS
  • Promote their own Web site or blog RSS feeds by creating a button that enables users to quickly add their site to AvantGo (see right column)

"We were very pleased with the results of the beta test on AvantGo for RSS. Our subscribers have provided overwhelmingly positive feedback," said Neil Versen, senior director, AvantGo at iAnywhere. "AvantGo is not only free but also enables access to feeds both online and offline—a feature that our subscribers indicated was one of the most important requirements in choosing a mobile RSS reader."

iAnywhere’s new AvantGo for RSS service is immediately available for AvantGo 5.7 or above users. To learn more or to subscribe to an RSS channel with AvantGo, go to: www.avantgo.com/rss.

AvantGo for RSS supports RSS versions 0.91, 1.0 and 2.0 and Atom syndication formats. Supported devices include Palm OS 5, Windows Mobile Pocket PC, Windows Mobile Smartphone, Symbian OS UIQ and Symbian OS v6.1 Series 60.

Cheers ~ Arne
