Download Clean and Minimal Newspaper Skin for FeedDemon RSS Reader

RSS feed is the best and easiest way to stay updated with your favorite website or blog. Just subscribe to the desired website's RSS feed in your RSS feed reader and it'll automatically notify you whenever a new article is posted on that website.

You can subscribe to RSS feeds using online RSS readers as well as dedicated desktop clients (RSS feed reading software). Personally I prefer desktop clients for RSS feeds and my favorite RSS reader is FeedDemon.

FeedDemon is a very lightweight software which is also very easy to use. I'm using it since long time when it was not a free software but now anyone can download and use it for free:

I'm using FeedDemon's portable version so that I don't need to install and customize it every time I install Windows in my computers. You can also create a portable edition of FeedDemon with the help of following exclusive tutorial:

I like everything in FeedDemon except the built-in newspaper styles and integration of sharing, blogging, etc unwanted features.

I like clean and minimal things so I just wanted a simple RSS feed reader which shows the new posts and stuff only without any extra clutter which is of no use except increasing memory usage and ruining the reading experience.

That's why I created a simple, clean and minimal newspaper skin for FeedDemon client which doesn't show any unnecessary stuff in reading area. It just shows the new article title, its content and date/time.

Features List:

  • Very simple and clean skin for minimal theme lovers

  • Shows the articles and content in blog style which enhances reading experience

  • Looks good but unfortunately it isn't fully portable nor can I import news articles from RSS\Atom feeds stored in the database used in GreatNews as I need a newer,stable portable RSS\Atom Feed app... :(
