Deal Alert: Nextgen Reader goes free for Windows Phone, and 50% off for Windows 8

Nextgen Reader is one of our favorite Windows Phone apps. The fast, clean, and beautiful apps for Windows 8 and Windows Phone offer a great RSS reader experience. The Windows Phone app is free in the Windows Phone Store today as part of the ‘App of the Day’ campaign by DVLUP, Nokia’s developer rewards program.

Also, as part of Microsoft’s Red Strip Deals promo for the holiday season, the Windows 8 app is available at $1.49 only through rest of the year. That’s 50% of the regular price!

Both Windows Phone and Windows 8 apps have ad-free, fully functional trials, which is very generous of the developer. However, it’s a good time to convert those trials to full products to save yourself from future feature limitations or ads.

Want more? We're told that new updates and features are coming in the first half of January, for both versions. Stay tuned!

Download Nextgen Reader from the Windows Phone Store for Windows Phone 7.x and 8 devices and from Windows Store for Windows 8.

Thanks for the heads up. :) Feedly users will be ecstatic. :D


On the other hand I don't really use anything Google related. I downloaded just in case they ever change their model.

How is Nextgen Reader 'Google related'?

Aggemam says:

Google login required... which is also a deal breaker for me.

MrGreeves says:

Same here.  I don't plan on ever getting a Google account again.

I don't use any Google service except YouTube, but use lot of services which use Google account for authentication. I'm cool like that. ;)

SeeVuPlay says:

Nothing is worth getting a google account

carlosrdd says:

Same here nothing scroogle ever again!

Bob101910 says:

Same here, but I'm thinking about dropping Youtube too once a good alternative comes along

Yabai says:

Seconded. Even try to avoid YouTube, by using Dailymotion and Vimeo.

CardozoRT says:

NOW It's free?! Thanks a lot... -_-

Kadcidxa says:

Isnt it always been free?

Kadcidxa says:

Must be always free for me then because I was a beta tester?

walter1832 says:

Won't it always been free

Fuad Huda says:

Free again,. Nice

blackhawk556 says:

Damn i already have it for free!!! Now I can't get that satisfaction of getting a free app.

techjmw says:

Best RSS app on any platform. For FREE it is a no brainer, but I paid for it long ago. You won't be disappointed, grab it now.

Jazmac says:

Flipmag might edge this one out.

Octonabz says:

I live by Flux but have nextgen reader just in case.

DreadVenom says:

Is this better than Weave??

MrDiamondJ says:

Nextgen Reader is amazing for Feedly users. No-brainer, I use it constantly.

Marco Gomes1 says:

My favorite "news spot" on my Lumia 920 and for free! I got the app a couple of months ago and it's one of the apps I use every single day. Go get it!

hotraia says:

Does anybody know about stuff are going to happen for the next days or in the early of 2014 year?????????????????????

schlubadub says:

Yes, many things

sdreamer says:

I believe the trial was unlimited, nice to get rid of ads though

Talk4Lig says:

Downloaded it, it's my favourite reader until flipboard will come out

Etios says:

Google account requirement sucks, weave is better in this regard.

Jacky920 says:

Wondering if wpcentral app could also be free :)

Thank goodness u would hav started an argument here:P

schlubadub says:

The trial is free and full-featured. If you don't like ads then pay a measly buck for it

jkercado says:

Heck of a deal. This is one of those apps that feel like part of the OS. Quick, simple, reliable. It's been my newsreader for more than a year!

CokeZero98 says:

I second that, just love the app. Use it every day on my phone and on my Windows 8 PC, since i own a Windows Phone.

Localhorst86 says:

if i have the trial installed, will it automagically be upgraded to the "paid" version?

iggypop120 says:

Just uninstall current version download this to be safe.

schlubadub says:

Yes, trials are simply "unlocked" to full version. I've never had a problem with any apps or games and you don't need to reinstall anything.

zdenekvanik says:

Great, upgraded both WP and W8 version, using them daily, basically best RSS reader out there.

hey guys, which of these readers is the best?
• Weave
• Nextgen reader
• Pouch
• Squirrel
• Readit
• Phonly

Nextgen Reader, especially on Windows 8.

adriantalpas says:

I use Phonly, the free version, and from what i've tried is the coolest app. Simply to use + nice interface

thaman04 says:

Definitely Weave.  It's the only reader app that has SkyDrive sync between the Windows 8 and Windows Phone apps.  No Google account required!

dlvlg says:

So the article is posted approx 1150 pm, it is 3 am now, and feedly still cots regular pric, so was that a deal for yesterday? Why post this article with thirteen minutes before the end of promotion?

dlvlg says:

Yeah its not free. Thanks for the thought though, better late than never?

I keep trying other newsreaders and own quite a few other, but always seems to migrate back to NextGen Reader on both WP and W8. Just smooth and reliable. Have yet to find an alternative that works as well.

sj2202 says:

It's not free now.
Has the deal expired already?

Yes, doesn't seem free in the uk! :(

ngreader says:

Yes, deal is over but please go ahead and try the trial version (no limitations or ads for the moment).

Rale WP says:

Live tiles not working for me...just showing blank tile with title of subscriptions, no "live" with tile. I reinstated, change everything in settings, but.....WP7.8

thaman04 says:

Sorry - Weave is better:  No Google account required and has SkyDrive sync between Win8.1 and WinPhone :)  I'll consider this app once it adds that functionality.
