Here is the list of 5 free RSS desktop ticker to see latest feed items in form of a ticker on desktop.

I really like that all these tickers support multiple RSS feeds (if they didn’t, we would have to combine RSS feeds). So, whether you want to track news from Tech world, finance world, sports world, or even politics; you can do that using these RSS ticker software.

All these RSS tickers are unique in their own way. I will start with Snackr, which I personally find very exciting.


RSS Ticker - Tickr

Snackr is the best RSS ticker in this list (IMHO). There are many reasons which makes this ticker very special.

First of all, it comes with a very nice user-interface. You can add multiple RSS feeds to this ticker. It shows multiple feed items in one go. For each feed item, it shows headline only. If you want to read more, just click on the headline to see details of that feed item. It will also show URL to read that feed item completely in your web browser.

Some other key feature of this nice RSS desktop ticker:

  • Ticker transparency and news feed speed can be adjusted.
  • You can move this ticker to left, right, top, and bottom position of the screen.
  • This ticker provides starred ticker option where you can save important feed items.
  • This ticker always remain on top.
