Free Web-Based Feed Reader Funnels Feeds Into an Organized Knowledge and Productivity Tool

Helps Users Quickly Search, Find and Explore Relevant Info From RSS Feed Subscriptions

Q-Sensei today launches its FeedBooster, an advanced web-based feed reader with unique and powerful search technology enabling users to "boost" productivity by quickly and accurately honing in on relevant and timely information from the wealth of RSS news, blogs and business feeds. The free web-based service is up and running today and can be accessed at http://feeds.qsensei.com.

Q-Sensei's FeedBooster eliminates the stress of being 'behind' on reading, tagging and bookmarking feeds. It features a customizable dashboard to read and access feeds, powered with Q-Sensei's patented multi-dimensional search technology that lets readers easily search, browse, discover and share key information when and as they need it. FeedBooster becomes a powerful archive and controlled knowledge tool turning RSS subscriptions into a mine of information, whether for a casual reader's interest in cultural news or for an executive's interest in company and market trend information to maintain competitive advantage.  With minimal clicks, users can cull the relevant from irrelevant news through the dynamic next-generation search engine.

The Technology. Q-Sensei developed a patented search technique called multi-dimensional search, which lets users quickly hone in on relevant information not just by key word (full text), but also by a simple or multiple combination of specific "dimensions" or filters such as date, author, source, tag and language.  With this level of granularity, FeedBooster users can personalize and change the combination of filters to set up multiple "Search Profiles" - one-click saved searches of self-curated mashup of feeds - to continuously and effortlessly track news tailored to users' varied information needs.  FeedBooster was also designed to offer a high level of dashboard customization so that the feeds can be arranged and presented in the user's preferred order.

"We would like to present a new standard for information search and consumption where dynamic multi-dimensional searching is essential to filter through the abundance of information around us," explained Ute Rother, CEO of Q-Sensei.  "We developed FeedBooster to help people stay on top of news and get the most out of their favorite feeds. People want to stay abreast of the best and most relevant news from sources they trust - be it politics, music, entertainment or market news sites, friends' blogs or industry feeds. Our multi-dimensional search-powered FeedBooster lets the user stay in the driver's seat on a fast track to the right information."


The Q-Sensei FeedBooster also features:

  • Single log-in via Google, Facebook and Open-ID
  • Easy import from Google Reader; selection of feed sets on news, politics, business, entertainment, technology, science, sports and music; import of individual feeds
  • Graphically-designed, user-friendly interface to add and manage unlimited feeds
  • Three browsing formats - grid, index and table formats to expand or limit details presented to headlines or longer news summaries
  • Social sharing of liked feed items via email, Twitter or Facebook
  • Granular customization of the reader interface to control feed trends - e.g. setting the sort order for the feeds, easy on-off and frequency control on filters
  • Text highlights on searches

Tablet and smartphone versions scheduled for the fall FeedBooster apps for tablet and smartphone devices - iOS and Android - will be available this fall.
