Snackr is an Adobe AIR-based RSS ticker. Install, load it with RSS feeds, and watch the news roll right by.
Snackr takes random unread stories from the prior 30 days (you can adjust the window of time) and rolls them by in the Snackr bar. You can stick the bar across the top or bottom of your monitor or mount it on the sides–with widescreen monitors it makes the most sense to use a little space on the side.
You can import your RSS feeds from Google Reader, from an XML file, or manually enter them. In addition you can adjust the scroll speed, ticker opacity, how items are picked from the feed, and where it’s docked. Visit the link below to read more and grab a copy. Snackr is free and works on any OS that can run Adobe AIR.
