Newsly Reader is a beautiful and functional news reader for Windows Phone

36

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.

226

Yesterday, the Preview for Developers program began pushing out Update 1 for Windows Phone 8.1 users. The OS refresh brings Live Folders and numerous other improvements that we are detailing in more in-depth articles.

Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1 lets you set the time without a SIM card

151

One of the smaller, but very useful features in Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1 is Network Time Protocol (NTP) support. If you run a PC, NTP is nothing new, it is simply the ability for the computer to ping the server and pulldown the time off the internet. (Wikipedia fact: It is one of the oldest internet protocols in use!)

However, Windows Phone did not support this, at least not until Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1.

iOttie Easy Flex Qi Car Charger Review

One of the more convenient features of many of the Lumia Windows Phones is the Qi wireless charging. Whether you are fortunate enough to have Qi built into your Lumia Windows Phone or rely on the wireless charging covers, the technology offers a simple means to re-charging your phone.

Nokia has added the technology to their CR-200/201 car cradle and iOttie has followed suit with their Easy Flex Qi Car Charger. The iOttie Qi charger is designed similar to the company's Easy Flex 2 and One Touch car cradles with an easy one touch mounting system.

While the iOttie Easy Flex Qi is priced less than the Nokia, one small feature may negate any savings the wireless charging cradle may offer.
