I have been using Qumana since over a year. Started using it after Jon Husband drew the concept on a napkin for me during a diner here in Enschede, in the spring of 2004.
The biggest benefits of this tool to me are/were the drop pad, allowing me to create a bread crumb trail of my feedreading and browsing, and the fact that I could directly post to all my blogs from the editor.
When the light edition of Qumana came out I kept on using the older version because of the workpad/bread crumb trail. This feature basically allows me to work on multiple postings at once, while storing the different sources and copied bits as seperate items as well. The newer version put all the items in one entry, assuming you would want to post the amalgam. Until today I used a release from early november 2004.
However now the new version supports using the categories of my blogtools, can handle technorati tagging, lets me edit older postings, and has a built in advertising feature I’ve decided to give it a try. Let’s see if I can set up a routine that lets me work with Qumana as I was used to, using the workpad/bread crumb trail. Also I want to experiment with advertising a bit. Not that I think it will bring in shiploads of money. In the end you will decide whether the advertising will stay or not. I am especially curious about what you think about ads showing up in my RSS feeds. Let me know!
