NewsGator Releases NewsGator Inbox -- The Premier Microsoft Outlook-Based RSS Aggregator

Formerly Named NewsGator Outlook Edition, New Release Features Advanced Synchronization, Podcasting Support, and Optimized Off-line Viewing

DENVER, CO -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 28, 2006 -- NewsGator Technologies, Inc., the leading RSS platform company, today announced the general availability of NewsGator Inbox 2.6. Formerly known as NewsGator Outlook Edition, which was the first RSS aggregator for Microsoft Outlook®, NewsGator Inbox 2.6 includes a wide range of new features designed to help people find and read relevant RSS content efficiently and effectively. Highlights of the new release include clippings synchronization with the NewsGator Online Web-based RSS aggregator, integration with FeedStation, NewsGator's free podcatcher, and the ability to view web pages while working offline.

"For many busy professionals, Microsoft Outlook is the application they spend the most time using every day," said Greg Reinacker, founder and CTO of NewsGator. "We started the company more than three years ago based on the idea that viewing RSS feeds through a folder in Outlook was an efficient way to consume information. NewsGator Inbox 2.6 is the latest evolution in our mission to make it as easy as possible to find, deliver and read relevant information, anytime, anywhere, on any device."

No Learning Curve

Since NewsGator Inbox plugs into Microsoft Outlook and feeds appear in their own folders within the application, users don't have to spend days learning how to use the product. For Outlook users, NewsGator Inbox offers an ideal alternative to searching for content via the Web or sifting through hundreds of e-mails to find relevant news and information. Some of the new features include:

--  Synchronized Clippings --  Now when you save a post to your clippings
    in NewsGator Inbox, it automatically synchronizes with your NewsGator
    Online clippings. Perfect for saving posts to clippings at work, and
    reading them online at home.
--  Built-in Podcatching --  Seamless podcast downloading with
    FeedStation. Now you can download podcasts right from Outlook, and they
    automatically transfer to your personal media device.
--  Off-line Viewing -- Even if you are reading posts offline, have the
    same viewing experience as if you were online -- ideal for your daily
    commute.
    
"NewsGator is a blog user's best friend. It is my principal RSS reader and I use it every day. NewsGator Inbox's integration with Microsoft Outlook makes it easy to read RSS feeds from your Outlook and keeps everything synchronized across all your Windows devices," said Don Dodge, Director, Business Development of Microsoft's Emerging Business Team.

NewsGator Inbox is available for $29.95 USD and can be purchased at www.newsgator.com.
