Litefeeds brings optimized feeds to Java-enabled devices

I've received a nice e-mail from John informing me that Litefeeds (a project by John Goodall and Darren Inouye of Webpost Enterprises) has gone public. Litefeeds looks very much like a light version of Bloglines. But here is the kick: Once you've subscribed to (or imported) your favorite feeds, you download a stand-alone Java (J2ME) application and install it on your Java-enabled mobile device (Blackberry is also supported). This application works as a gateway and downloads your selected feeds from the Litefeed server which are cached, compressed and stripped of unneeded HTML code.

I tried to add one of our feeds, but the Litefeeds server timed out in the progress. Keeping in mind this service is still in beta, I'll try it again in a couple of days and see how it works with my new Nokia Communciator 9500

Isn't there something like Yahoo RSS to WAP already? How does it differ from Java?

hi Alex, the server was running slow that night, but should be fine now.
Just wanted to let your readers know that if they have trouble installing over the air
at mobile.litefeeds.com they can try litefeeds.com/mobile

Any feedback would be appreciated ... jgoodall [at] webpostsolutions [dot] com

Thanks

Hi John,

I keep trying to get this working on my cell phone, but I get a "please check your username/password and try again" error every time. Any ideas?

Thanks!
Jess
