xFruits: A Review

[A guest post by Bishal Adhikari from Tech Tips and Tricks]

RSS Feeds are a great way to get regularly updated on the latest news on your favorite blogs. But there are people who don’t know much about RSS feeds or about subscribing to them but could be used to reading PDFs(ebooks). So, if you don’t want to lose such readers, xFruits is a great tool to get PDFs out of your feeds.

You can have readers directly read the PDF version of your feeds. xFruits has a handful of useful tools to get more out of your RSS feeds. Using the RSS-to-PDF tool, you can easily convert your RSS feed to PDF format. Or if you like, you can add a download PDF button to every post on your blog so that readers directly download the PDF from any post they come across. Isn’t that cool?

Most of the popular blogs have their content available for the mobile users and have a fully optimized mobile version of their sites. But everyone may not have the resources to run a mobile version of their websites. xFruits comes in handy for this purpose as well. xFruits lets you make a very simple HTML version of your blog with its RSS-to-Mobile tool. Add your feed URL to the RSS-to-Mobile tool, add relevant tags, click publish and you’re done. After this, the feed gets published via a URL on your xFruit profile which displays all of the latest post titles from your feed in the left navigation bar. The content on the other hand is displayed in the main panel.

The site generated by xFruits isn’t cool at looks and is extremely simple. But it opens and loads fast and is perfect for opening with mobile browsers like Opera or Firefox’s Fennec for mobile. Besides this it also sends your new data feed to other syndication services like Technorati and MyYahoo.

xFruits is a great tool to use your RSS feed in multiple ways. Go ahead and give it a try.
