Nextgen Reader

If you’re looking for a decent RSS reader for Windows 8.1 or Windows Phone, Nextgen Reader is one of the best options available.

Recently, the developers pushed a major update for Nextgen Reader which comes with plethora of new features and enhancements for both operating systems.

Firstly, the app is now universal which means if you purchase the app on your Windows Phone device, you can download it free of cost on your Windows 8.1 machine, and vice versa. In addition, there’s a new logo for the universal app, with new live tiles with smaller text for headlines.

Here’s a complete changelog for the app

  • Brand new logo for universal app.
  • Login/purchase once and run on multiple devices (Windows or Windows Phone).
  • New live tiles with smaller text size for headlines.
  • Easily configure individual tiles i.e. display only unread count, headlines or images.
  • Support for large screen devices (Lumia 1520).
  • Share articles via OS e.g. save to reading list app.
  • Discover new feeds or browse categories via ‘add feeds’ hub.
  • Optimized for low memory devices (Lumia 520).
  • Redesigned login page and fixed login errors.
  • Improved OneNote login (if you use 2-factor authentication).
  • Many other changes and improvements.
  • Known issue: Save image to phone is not supported in this release (planned).

If you’re a regular Nextgen reader user, head over to the Windows or Windows Phone store and grab the app — it comes with a $2.99 price tag, but it’s universal now meaning that you don’t have to pay separately on your computer and windows phone.
