Efficiency instead of time waste: The Bat! v6.3.4 opts for RSS-Feeds



Keep in touch with the latest events with news subscriptions in the email client The Bat! v6.3

Chişinău, 24.04.2014 – Ritlabs, SRL makes another step forward in making The Bat! email client a personal information center: the new version 6.3.4 supports subscriptions to the individually chosen RSS feeds. Subscribe to an RSS feed in The Bat! and get news directly into your email client – you will no longer need to waste time searching for news on the websites. The users of The Bat! can get the latest news and posts from the subscribed websites, blogs and forums, increasing the efficiency of their work and saving precious time.

Mr. Maxim Masiutin, CEO of Ritlabs, SRL, has commented: “We were always eager to save users’ time with our program. Experienced users of The Bat!, especially the ones who send 50, 100, 200 and more messages each day, handle large volumes of email efficiently and much faster. The same is with RSS in The Bat!: you can view, sort, categorize and look in one simple list lots of items received via RSS in just a few seconds.

In the time of information overload Ritlabs, SRL consciously opts for the reputable RSS format. Maxim Masiutin adds: “Modern social media are only designed to "hook" the users, not to save their time and life, but to tie them to these social sites for all day long. We want to save our customers’ precious time”

Manage the news more effectively

The Bat! users can do without using additional programs or plugins as opposed to browser-based solutions like Google Reader or some other feed readers. RSS feeds are displayed in the same program window alongside electronic messages. This is the most effective way to manage news. There are two ways of displaying RSS feeds in The Bat!: as summary of news (see the “Summary” tab) or the complete news (see the “Entire text“ tab). The user can mark news as read/unread, delete them, park or flag as though these were regular emails.

Subscribing to an RSS-feed in The Bat! is quite simple as all you need is copy the needed URL, invoke the RSS menu in the program and paste the link. The Bat! will then periodically fetch news as well as update subscriptions at startup. By default The Bat! checks feeds for updates every ten minutes and marks them as read when viewed for longer than two seconds. Options such as “Empty Trash folder on exit” or “Compact all folders on exit” keep the mail data size as small as possible. These options can be customized by the users according to their needs.
