Retickr, a news reader app for Macs, is revolutionizing the way you read news. By customizing it to what you want to read. The app does this in several ways, combining your RSS feeds, social network updates and news you like to read. Consider it like a Pandora for news stories. The idea may also be gaining ground according to TechCrunch which has reported the company has just ",received a big update today, as well as a new round of funding. The startup just closed its Series A of $1.5 million led by the Lamp Post Group , the investors who had previously put $150,000 into the company's seed round." The app which became available at noon today on the Mac App store allows you to integrate your Facebook, Twitter, and Google Reader feeds and then add those streams into playlists. The previous Retickr did not allow for the syncing process. The news of the product actually makes me wish that they had an alternate version for Windows users, especially as someone who scours through tech industry news on a daily basis to bring my readers up-to-date, interesting and mentally stimulating news. You're welcome. All joking aside I do hope they bring something out for windows users or a competitor comes out on windows. It really does become a hassle scouring Twitter, RSS feeds, Technorati, among other websites just to look for interesting stories to peak my as well as my readers interest.
