FeedStitch is a news aggregator that can combine multiple RSS news feeds and other data sources into one RSS feed or Json format.
It is by far not as complex as Yahoo Pipes but provides a comfortable and fast way of combining multiple news sources into one.
FeedStitch offers multiple third-party ways of logging into the service including using Twitter, Facebook, Google, Yahoo, Open ID and AOL.
Once logged in it is possible to paste RSS feed urls into the form on the main page to add them to groups. Groups are made up of multiple RSS news feeds and other news sources and provide access to a single RSS news feed url or Json item.
The other news sources that can be added in addition to news feeds are Twitter (either by username or Twitter search), Flickr, Delicious, Github and Tumblr. A new url is created for each new group that gets created by the user. Each group can be accessed directly in the web browser or in a feed reader. It is also possible to customize the url in the form http://feedstitch.com/groupname/.
FeedStitch is a nice service for users who want to quickly combine multiple RSS feeds into one especially if they have an account at one of the services that can be used to log into FeedStitch.
The option to browse the feeds directly on the Feedstitch website may be interesting. Instead of having to access the sites directly, or use a feed reader to view the articles posted on the site, you can use Feedstitch to create a personalized list of articles from sites that you add to a group. You can then read all articles posted to one of the sites or services that you have added on Feedstitch where only the articles and nothing else are displayed.
Update: Feedstitch is no longer available. You can use an alternative such as RSS Mix instead. The free service enables you to combine up to 100 RSS feeds into a single one.
Advertising revenue is falling fast across the Internet, and independently-run sites like Ghacks are hit hardest by it. The advertising model in its current form is coming to an end, and we have to find other ways to continue operating this site.
We are committed to keeping our content free and independent, which means no paywalls, no sponsored posts, no annoying ad formats (video ads) or subscription fees.
