Listen to RSS Feeds on Your Palm

Published on August 27, 2005 in Palm

Audiolicious is a new way to turn any RSS feed into a podcast. It will convert a feed’s webpages into MP3 files. I have created a sample podcast from this site and PalmInfocenter’s RSS feed and listened to it. In addition, I tried but could not get Palm Addict’s RDF feed to work (appears to be a current limitation of the tool).

Overall, an intriguing way to keep up to date with a web site. In the program’s current state it is probably a little too technical for the average user to set up and use (requires the user to install Ruby on their machine and does not have a GUI interface). In addition, though not the fault of Jonathan, I find the current quality of TTS voices very limiting. All things considered, Audiolicious, is a very innovative tool that could have a promising future. Check it out.
