Feedity offers several nifty tools and tips for RSS feed users, like a widget, API access, Autodiscovery, and Bookmarklet.
Our Reader app (currently in private beta) provides a smarter way for you to read all your favorite blogs, news sites and other interesting Web content in one place. It's a simple, focused and cross-device media monitoring tool. Import your feeds (OPML) and try out our best alternative feed reader

Look & feel of the widget can be customized by specifying the background and font/link color properties (in the code above). The widget's div tag (id: divFeedityWidget) can also be used through CSS for more control.
Note: This widget can only be used with RSS feeds generated through Feedity or Yahoo Pipes!
We offer an API (short for Application Programming Interface) for developers and partners to programmatically interact with our cloud-based feed parser and generator. Our REST-based API provides a simple and easy mechanism for creating custom RSS feeds on-the-fly from frequently-updated Web content.

An important step after creating a RSS feed is letting your viewers know that it exists. You can easily do this by putting a link to the RSS feed on your website or your blog. Follow these simple steps to publish your RSS feed online:
Download the RSS icon image (right-click on the image and save it on your computer):
Select the HTML code below, and 'copy & paste' it to the appropriate location on your webpage.
Replace the anchor URL (http://feedity.com/your/feed.rss above) with your RSS feed URL, and upload the RSS icon image to your server.
Besides publishing a link to your RSS feed on your website, you may also look at RSS autodiscovery (described below) for promoting your RSS feed through your website.
RSS autodiscovery is a technique that makes it possible for web browsers and other software to automatically find a site's RSS feed. Autodiscovery is a great way to inform users that a web site offers a syndication feed.
To support autodiscovery, a
element must be added to the header, as shown in the HTML markup below. Replace the
value of the
element with the URL of your RSS feed.
<link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="RSS" href="http://feedity.com/your/feed.rss">
<!-- the web page's contents -->
