Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.


Snackr is an RSS ticker that pulls random items from your feeds and scrolls them across your desktop. When you see a title that looks interesting, you can click on it to pop up the item in a window (Windows / Linux / Mac).

Snackr was built using Adobe Flex 3 and Adobe AIR 1.0. AIR makes it really easy to build cross-platform desktop apps using web technologies like AJAX, Flash and Flex. The Adobe AIR runtime will be installed when you install Snackr.

To install Snackr, first you need to install Adobe Air, then download Snackr, double click the file you just downloaded and follow the on-screen instructions.
