Karaoke-style feed reader for mobile phone
May 8, 2006
Delicious Mona is a free feed aggregator (OPML, RSS, RDF supported) for mobile phones (see compatibilty list) that is linked to a del.icio.us account of your choice for easy bookmarking of articles from any feed (bookmarked articles are automatically tagged with mona).
Other feed aggregators provide similar services e.g. Bloglines, including mobile access and a sort of bookmarking (clip blog and Keep New), but they have a monolithic approach in that all services are implemented in-house.
Delicious Mona innovates on two fronts:
- usage of an external social bookmarking service to keep track of readings (e.g. think of a Mona Meme Tracker), and
- a Story Player metaphor for the reading experience: you can Play, Pause and Rewind any article that flows (Play tempo can be adjusted) as you read it (think of Karaoke-like feed reading!).
