Fedora Reader is a fast and Modern RSS reader for Windows and Windows Phone

86

Have you heard? Universal Windows apps are the big thing for Windows and Windows Phone users. Today, we have another addition to our bucket of apps. Fedora Reader is a super quick, clean and Modern RSS feed reader from Joshua Grzybowski, the developer of Pouch, a well-received Pocket app for Windows Phone.

Fedora Reader is unlike many other RSS apps in that it looks very Windows 10 with thin fonts and new-style buttons. The app is very lightweight at less than 1 MB on the phone, launches quickly, and is easy to use.

If you do not have any RSS feeds ready, the app has a curated listed in various categories including Business, News, Entertainment, and Technology. Within each category is a predefined RSS feed that you can add. Of course, you can also add your own RSS feeds.

Starbucks Locator 2.0 shows you're never too far from coffee

82

Grande mocha, please. That's what I usually order from Starbucks. I already know where to find the Starbucks stores near my house, but I need help when I'm somewhere else. While I can use HERE maps to find the nearest Starbucks for my caffeine fixation, a dedicated app can be a faster solution. If you are a frequent Starbucks customer, then the Starbucks Locator for Windows Phone should be installed on your phone. It has just undergone a version 2.0 update. See it in action in our hands-on video.

Control your Philips Hue Lights with Huetro 2.0 now for Windows and Windows Phone

50

Philips Hue Lights (MeetHue.com) are certainly not cheap, but they are very awesome. The system allows you replace your current lights with a LED bulb that will supposedly last 10 to 20 years. Even more exciting, the Hues color bulbs can change to nearly any color in the spectrum through a wireless connection. As a result, you can make your living room glow different colors as accent lighting or make your office look like a military installation with red lights.

I have around twelve Philips Hue Lights set up in my place, including the newer LED strip lights and Hue Tap, which acts like a wall switch. There is only one problem, and that is Philips does not make an app for its Hue Lights for Windows Phone.

Today, Huetro for Windows Phone has hit 2.0 with an all new redesign. Additionally, it is now a universal app with the Windows 8.1 counterpart now available as a public beta!
