The easiest way to get the latest news is via a RSS reader and there are many to choose from out there. GSA News Reader is one of the options that focuses on simplicity and ease of use, providing a straightforward application for getting updates from both RSS feeds and regular websites.

When launching GSA News Reader for the first time, you are prompted to choose one of the predefined feeds. The application displays a list of RSS feeds from various domains, ranging from business pages to entertainment feeds and other subjects, such as music, cars or technology.

Aside from the predefined links, GSA News Reader can handle any RSS feed or website address. In other words, you can populate your headline list with other URLs, as you please. The content of the clipboard is automatically detected by the application, so all that is left for you to do is assign a relevant name to the new entry.

For each RSS feed, GSA News Reader enables you to set the checking time interval. Moreover, you can configure the application to ignore updates that include certain words, thus creating custom exceptions.

As you add more and more links to the reader, your headline list grows bigger and bigger. GSA News Reader features tag-based searching, which enables you to quickly find the link you are looking for. There are four predefined tags but you are free to add as many as you please. Organizing feeds in different categories from the start would also help you find certain feeds, and would definitely add to the application’s value.

As expected with such an application, GSA News Reader displays updates and changes it detects in a popup window, playing a sound notification to keep you up-to-date with your favorite news. While it can be further improved to meet users’ requirements, it is a fact that this application delivers an easy way to get the latest news.
