Washington, DC (PRWEB) January 18, 2005
Mesa Dynamics today released Tickershock 1.1, a significant upgrade to its animated, interactive RSS and Atom news headline reader for Mac OS X.
Featuring scrolling crawl and billboard displays inspired by the news displays of 24-hour cable news channels, Tickershock is a departure from typical RSS applications that emulate web browser or email reader environments. Tickershock pushes news headlines to the screen until the user sees a story worth reading: a double-click on a news headline brings up a web-enabled "News Inspector" in which a story can be explored in greater depth.
Tickershock 2.0 features a "Timeshift" mode to quickly preview all the stories in a news feed and introduces "Schedules," a programmable service for automating delivery of the news on designated timetables (for example, getting the top headlines delivered every hour on the hour). Other enhancements include OPML export and new display capabilities.
A trial version of Tickershock is available for download at http://www.mesadynamics.com and requires Mac OS X 10.2.8 (Jaguar) or later. A single user license of Tickershock is available for $19.95.
