RSS Feeds in iTalk Whoa!

For us active user of the Internet, we like to keep up to date to the online news and blogs that we read. Someone created RSS (Really Simple Syndication) Feeds so that updates can be receive without us having to surf the website or blog everyday to check for updates. Some of us put the RSS Feeds on our blog or add it to the web browser. I find this kind of making my blog or browser cluttered with RSS Feeds. I read a lot of blogs mind you lol.

Well now I don't have to clutter my blog or browser. All I have to do is login to my iTalk Whoa! portal and add my favourite website or blog RSS Feeds and voila, my personal RSS Feeds portal.

Here's a short tutorial on how to add RSS Feeds to your iTalk Whoa! portal.

Select the RSS Feeds under Mail panel and click on New Group to create a new category/group

Pop up box [RSSFeed Category Name] will appear and please input any name for the new group – example News

Then click on button [Add]
Automatically the News Feeds will appear in current Category Panel as below:

To input any info on News category, just search for RSS News that interest you. In the example, the feeds gather from The star newspaper.
Just go to the The Star Url -
Scroll further down till the end of the webpage and you will see image as below:

The RSS icon placed on the right side and click on it –
