Do you get annoyed when some RSS feeds deliver only excerpts to your RSS reader and you have to click a link to their page to read the full article? Most of you also prefer full RSS feeds in our recent Makeuseof Question of The Day. Fortunately, we now have FiveFilters. This handy web app can transform any partial feed into a full text feed.
To create a full-text feed, simply enter the webpage or feed URL then get the new link for your RSS reader. You can also drag a bookmarklet to your browser’s bookmark bar and just click it to transform any partial feeds. This tool can also convert any page into a single feed, which is handy if you want to save a webpage into your RSS reader for future reading.
You can use FiveFilters for free although you are limited to 5 RSS feeds and cache time of 20 minutes. They offer a premium API key ($10/month) which allows you to get 10 RSS feeds and only ten minutes of cache lag. Fivefilters is also available as a free download that you can host in your webserver.
