I was just reading a Forbes article one of our readers, Michael, sent in that mentions that NewsGator is now giving away their mobile feed reader for free. The NewsGator Go! application used to cost a hefty $29.99 which was a terrible proposition compared to the free Viigo RSS reader. This may give Viigo a run for its money. This announcement from NewsGator comes on the heels of them giving away the great FeedDemon desktop RSS application for free.
To download the application you need to head on over to NewsGators website to register an account at this link.
