Skweezer now supports RSS newsfeeds
IRVINE, Calif., February 21, 2005–Greenlight Wireless today announced that Skweezer now supports RSS newsfeeds. The addition of this new feature was prompted by a recent survey of Skweezer users, which put mobile RSS access at the top of users wish list for the service.
Skweezer users can now read RSS feeds on their wireless handheld devices, such as PDA’s or cell phones, without using a stand-alone RSS Reader. RSS feeds are often more convenient for mobile users to read than full Web pages, as they consist of a list of headlines and short descriptions that link to the full story or article. Content accessed from the newsfeed is compressed and reformatted with Skweezer’s wireless optimization technology, making it faster to load and easier to view on a wireless handset. RSS feeds can also be bookmarked in Skweezer, allowing quick access to frequently visited newsfeeds right from the Skweezer homepage.
RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is a lightweight XML format designed for sharing headlines and other Web content. Many news-related Web sites provide an RSS feed to facilitate access to stories and articles. RSS Reader applications, which allow users to combine multiple feeds and receive alerts for new stories, are usually required to view RSS newsfeeds.
Skweezer is a free Web portal browser that optimizes Web pages, searches, and e-mail for use on PDA’s and cell phones. Mobile Internet users access Skweezer by visiting, Skweezer then using the portal as a “wireless gateway” to browse and search the Web. Skweezer compresses and reformats content being downloaded to the user’s device, so that it loads faster, looks better, and is easier to navigate. Skweezer Mail, Greenlight Wireless’ popular mobile e-mail solution, is also included with a free personalized account.
