A few days ago I sat down and reviewed one of my favorite news consumption apps, Pouch. The elegant Pocket client for Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8 brings a clean and uncluttered reading experience to your favorite mobile devices.

The copy of Pouch for Windows 8 used in last week’s review was a private beta, not yet available to the general public. In anticipation of the upcoming software update, the developer has dropped the price of Pouch by 50% to $1.49.

The older generation of Pouch isn’t as nice as the copy we reviewed, but this is a great way to get the application at a low price and piggyback the free upgrade. We are told the price of Pouch will be returned to its normal $2.99 price tag once the upgrade is available in a few weeks.

You can purchase Pouch for Windows 8 here or if you first want to check out the review then you may do so here.

What are some of your favorite apps to enjoy personally curated news?
