Nextgen Reader updated to version 3.1 with new features

Nextgen Reader

Nextgen Reader, an RSS app for Windows Phone, has been updated to version 3.1, which introduces a number of features, bug fixes, and enhancements. The app enables users to keep up-to-date with favourite sources of information, with support for Google Reader.

The app was previously bumped to version 3.0 back in May, adding a new tutorial to get users started who may not be familiar with the app. So what's new in 3.1? The "my feeds" section has disappeared, with all feed management moved to the main screen. Smarter article viewing is available for when viewing articles with a view button present to turn the content mobile-friendly.

Full list of highlights from this latest update:

  • Smarter article view i.e. share/save/email/mobilise current opened link instead of original article.
  • Dynamic subscriptions hub with featured section to find latest and popular feeds.
  • Tap and hold to edit/pin/delete a subscription from main page.
  • Pin to start (live tile) experience.
  • Improved sharing on Facebook with embedded links.
  • Always use HTTPS for sync. as default
  • Fixed always sort starred items by newest first.
  • Fixed Twitter authentication bug.
  • Several more bug fixes and app enhancements.

Best RSS reader for Windows Phone! Love it.

Camaroon says:

Does this allow for the addition of feeds without having a Google Reader account?  I feel like most of the readers require a GR account which I don't have and really don't want.  I've been using Weave since January which is OK but there hasn't been a single update to it which makes me wonder if it's still being developed.

You should try rss central if you don't want to be tied down to a gr account.

I looked at RSS Central but didn't really like the layout.  I've downloaded Zite but actually haven't used it yet.  I thought that was only a news app that you couldn't add feeds to.

This is one of the few apps I bought. Great reader, devs are responsive.

3.1 update is not showing in the Market. Still showing 3.0?
