FeedDemon's watches provide a way to look for keywords in news items as they're downloaded. For example, if you create a watch that looks for the word "election," then every news item containing the word "election" will be stored in the watch.

After you create a watch, it examines every incoming news item whenever any feed is updated.

Why would I use a watch?

Use a watch to find interesting news items without having to look for them yourself. This enables you to subscribe to feeds that you may not want to read regularly, yet always find out when they have an item that's of interest.

Note: A watch searches only in feeds you're subscribed to. If you wish to search all feeds on the web - regardless of whether you're subscribed to them - use a keyword search feed instead of a watch.
