Nextgen Reader is an RSS feedly powered client for Windows 8 and Windows Phone that many of you already tried out or, at the very least, have heard of. It is a great way to keep up with all of your favorite news sites (such as Mobile Nation’s entire network) across all of your Windows devices.
Today the company, Next Matters, has released an update for the Windows 8 version of the client that includes quite a few improvements and bug fixes in tow.
To start, let us talk about the new features that have been added to the Reader. An option is now available which will allows users to override the displayed article’s date and time format based on your own region. New personal customizations do not end there, though – Nextgen Reader v2.1 allows the reader to disable keyboard shortcuts if not needed. If you are a fan of keyboard shortcuts, then you can rejoice in the newly added ability to quickly view the full article (‘F’ Key), launch the article’s webpage (‘W’ Key), or my personal favorite, copy the article’s URL to the clipboard (‘U’ Key).
The latest version of Nextgen Reader also includes the abilities to share full articles or take advantage of new Buffer support through the Share Charm. If you are not aware of what Buffer is, you can check out their website by clicking here.
A number of fixes have also been stitched into the patch and they include repairing an issue with large tile notifications, correcting syncing errors that had previously occurred, and other performance improvements.
The team at Next Matters really cares about their software and their users, so be sure to throw them a line on twitter if you are having any issues or have suggestions for future versions of the application.
You can download the latest version of the application from the Windows Store by clicking here.
