RSS Tools – Mash Feeds, Create PDFs, Count Items & Reverse Streams


There isn’t much you can do with an RSS stream except subscribe to it but should you feel the need to manipulate them per your reading habits, you can use RSS Tools. It’s a free web service that lets you change any RSS feed in five different ways. You can reverse the order of the items (instead of newest to oldest, change it to oldest to newest), Count the number of items in a feed, combine any five feeds in to one or edit any string in an RSS feed.
