RSS news reader, tickertape style.

Overview

Tickershock... Inspired by the tickers of 24-hour cable news, Tickershock is an RSS and Atom news reader that displays news feeds anywhere on your screen in a animated crawl or billboard display.

Tickershock is a departure from typical RSS applications that emulate traditional Web browser or email reader environments. Focusing on the "push" nature of the technology, Tickershock aims to be a passive experience - but only until you decide a headline is worth exploring: a double-click on a news headline brings up a "News Inspector" (or your default browser) from which you can explore a story in greater depth.

And since it's optimized for performance, Tickershock requires a fraction of the CPU time used by more conventional stock and news tickers, freeing you to work but keep an eye on the news all the time.

  • New feature development on Tickershock has been discontinued and as a result, the product is now freeware.

This app works for me on my MacbookPro and my new iMac running 10.6.7 and does not crash at all like Newsticker. However I can't import my feeds with OPML. The window shows it is grayed out.

Buggy with new Intel Macs. Crashes sometimes when going to reference web page. It also crashed during trying to set up new feeds. Developers did not respond to question. An update please!

Works alright, can't hold a candle to NewsFire though.

NewsFire is not a ticker, so I'm not sure why you think it compares. "hold a candle" though...nice little pun there.
