An official app for The Register has been released for Windows Phone this past week. The online publication is a reputable technology resource with millions of readers, and Windows Phone owners will be pleased to know that a seamless experience is now available while on the go.
Latest articles are pulled down with comments displayed for each article. Users can add their own opinion on the article, or share the article with integrated social networks. Favourite feeds can be configured in the settings, for a maximum of three subjects. This creates a more personalised experience with relevant stories being targeted for viewing with three panes dedicated to the chosen topics. All feeds can be viewed regardless of what's selected in the settings, thus it's not a limitation.
It's a basic and simple app, but the interface is great and fluid throughout. Unfortunately, there's no option to change font sizes and screen orientation is locked at portrait, but we expect future updates to be rolled out addressing said issues with new feature implementations.
You can download The Register from the Marketplace for free.

Odd that a site that always bashes Windows Phone would put out an app.
yep, they're hypocrits!
Yeah, that's what I though, well, they bash anything MS to be honest
Never heard of it, but upon reading they bash Windows Phone & MS, no need to install this app.
Yeah, I was thinking about getting it too, because I really like my experience with WPCentral. But the WP & MS bashing kinda puts me off.
