The Windows Phone community is a pretty incredible place. Third party developers have constantly stepped up to the plate when an official app doesn’t exist on the platform or the current app is lackluster. Case in point, Phonly is an excellent app for users who want to get Feedly on Windows Phone. Solid performance meets a gorgeous UI in Phonly. The app also just received an update, so let’s dive into what’s new with it.
Phonly comes to us from Daniel Berg, a developer who has made some apps we’ve covered before. We first talked about Phonly when we called out for a help getting him some beta testers for the app. The community response was pretty overwhelming and together you helped Daniel create a killer app on Windows Phone that does everything you’d want with a Feedly app. But like all great apps, it gets better and better with each update. So here’s what is new when you update to version 184.108.40.206 in the Windows Phone Store:
- Performance improvements
- Bug fixes
- Better article image coverage for most feeds
- Open YouTube-links with Metrotube
- Turn off live tile counter
New settings in Phonly for Windows Phone
Bug fixes and performance improvements are almost a given with any update, so no surprise there. What’s really cool about this particular update is the ability to open links to YouTube with Metrotube. Find a YouTube link in a story you’re reading and forgo opening in Internet Explorer and instead let it open in Metrotube. Another small change is the ability to turn off the live tile counter for the app. Which is handy when you’re subscribed to dozens of blogs and sites and the counter can quickly climb to a high number.
