There was a minor update (v1.4.1) a couple of weeks back, but the current update (v1.5) includes a brand new feature called Advanced Refinement. Feedity already had a refinement feature which was useful for tweaking the feed output. The new feature extends on the refinement concept and provides the user a code-level scraping option. This was the most requested feature by Feedity users and it made sense to have it running. You can find a Advanced Refinement Help slideshow in the refinement options page on Feedity.
I’ve also updated the Feedity layout and interface in this release, and I hope it looks more streamlined and composed. As before, thanks to the wonderful users of Feedity who share their feedback and keep this service going. Here’s what’s new on the blogosphere about Feedity (also see past testimonials):
It turned out to be exactly what I was looking for. … It’s very simple, yet powerful and useful. … Feedity is one of those things that you’ll want to stash away in your bookmarks, because eventually you’ll probably come across a site that doesn’t offer syndication.
This is a cool tool if I’ve ever seen one…
… a terrific widget …
The best part about this tool is it’s simple to use and if marketed well, can be used extensively by non-techie-small businesses around the globe.
Sounds like just what I need.
I can see all kinds of possibilities.
If you find Feedity useful then please consider donating an amount of your choice towards the maintenance and improvement of this free-for-life service.
Thanks to all! Cheers 🙂
Google Alerts notified me of a nice video tutorial which highlights building a custom data mashup using Yahoo Pipes with Feedity (there’s even a pre-built Webpage-to-RSS pipe which you can clone and use in your pipeline).
Talking of mashups, according to ProgrammableWeb, the number of “official” mashups has grown from roughly 900 in August 2006 to roughly 1550 till date. Web is the new database!
