Newsly Reader is a fantastic news reader app for Windows Phone that went under our radar last month. I'm glad that I've discovered it now, and have been using it since a couple of days. Developed by Nemanja Stancic, a Serbian developer, Newsly Reader is a full content news reader and allows you to read from your favorite news sources and RSS feeds in one place sorted in the way you like it.

You can pick from featured sources (bummed that WPCentral is not listed there) or from a variety of categories. You can also search for topics and feeds to find favorite sources or discover new ones.

CEF Photos is a Windows Phone reference app that delivers over 1,100 photos of the Canadian Expeditionary Force during World War I. While Great Britain and the United States often took center stage, 620,000 men and women of the CEF served during the First World War. The mostly volunteer force participated in several major battles across the European theatre and carried a strong reputation as being an effective military formation.

CEF Photos may not appeal to everyone but with the First World War passing its 100-year anniversary, the app may present a different perspective on things to history buffs.
