Elicit, a desktop blog client that integrates Web and RSS services from Google (desktop search, news, blog search), Yahoo (news, blog search), Microsoft (news), Bloglines (RSS aggregator), Amazon (catalog searching), Flicker (photo sharing), Technorati (blog tagging) , del.icio.us (social book marking), Furl (personal Web), Topix (news), and Chitika (blog context ads) in one desktop application for the purpose of creating content for blogs. Elicit allows the blogger to manage their blogs with a calendar. Many bloggers have more than one blog that are hosted on a variety of hosts. And many bloggers know they have to publish up to three entries a day to each blog to attract readers and search engines. By providing a Microsoft Outlook style calendar for each blog, Elicit enables the blogger to visualize, organize, and schedule the date and time for an entry to be published to their blog.
Version 1.1.7 features integrated Wikipedia search, and minor fixes and enhancements.
