UNIC (Universal News Internet Collector) software is designed for the efficient online collection of the latest news that matters to you, so that you can read it offline, any time.
A key feature of UNIC is that you can read the news digests on either your desktop PC or your PocketPC.
UNIC downloads news items from top-rated news sites, parses them into categories, and stores them in its own database.
A user-friendly and intuitive program interface along with a comprehensive Help file will quickly familiarize you with all of UNIC's basic features:
1. Setting the website and categories list for news download.
To point the program to the news sites and categories that appeal to you, you need to check the appropriate sites and categories in the list of currently supported news sources.
2. Several methods for searching downloaded items: By keyword; By filtering: for category, for site, for time period; Advanced search using both filters and key words.
The last method significantly accelerates information search among all the news items downloaded by UNIC. If you only needed the entertainment news from a certain site, for instance, you would create a filter called "Entertainment" and use it for that particular news category.
3. Scheduled program start.
You can set UNIC to collect news on a schedule that you set yourself. You can have the news downloaded once every few minutes, hours, days, or even weeks. And-better yet-at whatever time of day you want.
If you are using a modem connection, for example, it may be more convenient for you to have the news downloaded at night, so that the latest news will be there on your computer in the morning, for you to read offline.
4. Creating .lit files for the PocketPC.
UNIC allows you to create manual or scheduled .lit files so you can read your news on any PocketPC that has Microsoft Reader installed.
UNIC offers a digest of the news you want, fully customized to your needs!
