FeedMyInboxI searched for a web site that can deliver me the RSS feed updates, for that day, in my inbox, something like a newsletter. Thus I found a nice service called FeedMyInbox. This site allows subscribers have their RSS feeds delivered as e-mails once a day, in real time, or at a selected update interval. What a great idea! Now all I have to do is try to add my feeds in here and have them delivered daily. FeedMyInbox offers four plans, the last one being free, with only 5 subscribed feeds. The other three are 25 feeds subscription, for $5/month, 75 feeds for $10/month or unlimited feeds for $16/month. Apparently a good deal, but what if you have a lot of feeds and sometimes you need to control the content of these feeds?
Yahoo! PipesYahoo! Pipes lets you combine, filter, select using rules, split or do almost anything with RSS feeds or site content of your choise. If you have a Yahoo! account (if you don’t, get one here) just sign in and start creating your pipes. In the image above you may see a screenshot of my pipes on Yahoo! Pipes. I am using 5 Fetch Feed modules because one module can fetch up to 10 RSS feeds. Also I have a BabelFish module, inside another pipe, which helps me convert the content of a German RSS feed into English, so that I can read it. All these pipes are united into one using two Union modules, due to the large number of Fetch Feed modules.
The output is a large number of articles fetched from all the RSS feeds added and one feed translated from German into English. What a great tool! On YouTube you may see the following video on how to use Pipes with filters. Yahoo! Pipes is a great way of getting only what you want from the web.
