Anothr – RSS alerts to Google Talk

Anothr

Anothr, the service that delivers RSS feed to IM, has now integrated its service with Google Talk. Anothr had started off last year by delivering alerts on Skype, about which I had written before. Advantage of using Anothr over a similar service from ZapTxt is that you can manage your feeds from the command line whereas in ZapTxt you need to use the web interface. However ZapTxt is more to offer than just IM alerts and delivers full feed and keyword based alerts to email and via SMS. In fact since the last time I wrote about Anothr, the Chinese startup has also launched its web-based service that gives you more options to manage your feed in case you don’t feel comfortable with the command line concept. 

 To get started with the service in Google Talk you just need to add anothr@gmail.com to your buddy list and type “?” for help with commands.
