Nextgen Reader will live on; announces support for Feedly RSS service

Good news for those who use Nextgen Reader for Windows 8 and Windows Phone. The team has announced on the official blog that their apps will support Feedly. This is the next major chapter in the Closure of Google Reader book. With the search giant shutting down its popular RSS service, apps that connect and synchronise are having to locate other services to remain operational.

We've been following the developments surrounding Nextgen Reader and are pleased to learn that the RSS app will remain available. A handful of similar apps (some on other platforms) are also together with Nextgen Reader and Feedly to keep the vibrant community alive, as well as the apps we rely on today.

So when will the team be updating the Nextgen Reader apps with Feedly support? Both the Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 versions will be refreshed this month, with the Windows Phone 7 app receiving some update love early next month. You can download Nextgen Reader from the Windows 8 and Windows Phone Stores for $1.99.
