You've been able to sync your subscriptions and read/unread status today between NewsGator, NewsGator Online, and FeedDemon for quite a while. See Nick Bradbury's post at


Good stuff!

The issue is that I do not call what is in place synchronisation of unread marks. My understanding is that what can be done now is avoid downloading posts that have been read in NGOS. That does not do the trick for me: I want to download ALL posts on ALL instances of NewsGator I am using, and synchronize read/unread marks. Just like Exchange/Outlook. Hence my analogy.

Note: Charlie and I have had a private email exchange where he confirmed that this was being implemented. Yeah!


Why not try Bloglines.Bloglines is much better than newsgator. You can synchronize bloglines with blogbot for outlook. Folder hierarchy is synchronized between Outlook and Online via blogbot. It’s much better than newsgator between outlook and online.
If you like desktop news client, You can use Greatnews to synchronize bloglines like newsgator using feeddemon. Good news is Greatnews is a wonderful free software but feeddemon isn’t.Folder hierarchy is synchronized between Bloglines and Greatnews. Feeddemon doesn’t synchronize Folder hierarchy between newsgator online and itself. Greatnews can be found at :http://www.curiostudio.com/
If you like newsgator for outlook, don’t worry, blogbot does the same and better job for outlook. blogbot can be found at http://www.blogbot.com/out/.
Even you uses several computer, you won’t read the same news twice. cause it’s synchronized online, at outlook via blogbot, at desktop by greatnews.
Bloglines doesn’t offer a desktop service? That’s not true, check out Greatnews!
newsgator is about to attract you to put money out to their pocket. But bloglines platform strongly supported by blogbot in outlook and gratnews in desktop client is about freedom of goodness of sharing.
