When it comes to RSS feeds, Windows Phone users have numerous choices for an excellent experience and superb design. One of the more established creations is Nextgen Reader, which goes way back to January 2011 on Windows Phone. How’s that for dedication? The app now uses Feedly for RSS management and it’s a joy to use.
Version 5.31 is now live in the Store and we’re teaming up with Nextgen Reader to make it free for 24 hours. You heard that right. The app usually runs for $1.99 but if you grab the app in the next day, you’ll have a free, perpetual license on this excellent RSS reader forever. That means if you buy a new Windows Phone, this app will still be free for you.
Why? Because you folks deserve your news.
The latest version only contains some bug fixes, as opposed to the larger recent updates. In addition, there are no ads or feature limitations for a month in the trial version—but the app is free, anyway.
Nextgen Reader uses Readability, Instapaper or Google mobilizer for viewing of articles, allows offline support, UI themes, tons of custom options and maintains 4.5 (out of 5) stars from 1,851 reviews—so you know it’s good.
Don’t forget, if you like Nextgen Reader, do the developer a solid and leave a positive review in the Store. You can also grab the excellent Windows 8 version (see our review; Store link), which will be updated for Windows 8.1 support in the coming weeks.
Download. Read your favorite RSS sites. Prosper.
