Today has been all about apps getting some nice updates. We saw Facebook Beta and Oggl get some new features earlier, now Nextgen Reader is doing the same (and yes, 6tag got some minor bug fixes too).
Nextgen reader is currently one of the most popular apps on Windows Phone for accessing and staying on top of your favorite websites. Let’s check out what’s new.
The last time we saw Nextgen Reader updated was earlier in the summer. It picked up a new design with some other improvements in the performance department. That was v5.1, this is v5.2:
- New: Post to Tumblr.
- New: Share using Buffer (see bufferapp.com for more details)
- New: Support for HTTPS (enable via app settings -> general).
- New: Tap 'YouTube' in bottom-right corner to open videos in MetroTube app.
- Fixed: Switching between mobilizers.
- Several other bug fixes and improvements.
The app picks up a ton of new features that will make fans of Nextgen Reader really happy. Find something you really like? Share it to Tumblr or Buffer. What’s Buffer (bufferapp.com)? It’s a smarter way to share. You can add articles from Internet Explorer to your Buffer and share them through your various social media outlets throughout the day. Don’t worry, it’s new to us too, but we’re cautiously optimistic that this could be a really cool feature. While there isn’t a Buffer app available for Windows Phone. The Nextgen team does have a trick to add articles in Internet Explorer to your Buffer (http://nextmatters.com/addtobuffer/).
Other features include sharing to Tumblr and the ability to open YouTube videos in MetroTube. It’s a great update all around. What’s your favorite feature? Sound off below.
Want to try out Nextgen Reader? It’s available for both Windows Phone 7.x and 8. You have an unlimited, ad-free trial, but can then pay $1.99 for it. Grab it in the Windows Phone Store, use the QR codes below, or swipe to the right in our app.
