Reminder: Fuse RSS reader is now live in the Marketplace

We gave you a sneak-peek of Fuse RSS reader just a few days ago and now it's live in the Marketplace. The RSS reader really wowed us due to it's highly elegant UI, of which you currently have three choices in designs: Ribbon, Ipsum and Square. The app designer, Rudy Huyn, also let us know that two more themes will be rolling out soon as well.

Some of the main features are:

  • Three Applications In One - Fuse has three unique themes for three different user experiences. New themes are already under development and will be available soon for free - Ribbon : displays your feeds in the form of ribbons, for direct access to information - Ipsum : a clear and clean theme based on typography, use gestures to manipulate news - Square : a dynamic and unique theme. Retrieve your news on the move with an unique and visual experience.
  • Google Reader integration- If you have a Google Reader account, you can easily import your favorite feeds. You can also import your directories in two ways : - a virtual directory that will automatically synchronize with your Google reader account - an unified feeds consolidating all items into an unique feed. Finally, Fuse is the only RSS reader to respect the sort your feeds, change it in Google reader, Fuse will be automatically updated.
  • Work Offline - Fuse allows you to use the app even when there is no internet connection. All data and images are stored by the application so you can download feeds online and use those later when you are offline. You can navigate among groups, feeds, subscriptions and view articles in preview mode without connection.

We could say more, but check out our early-hands on video to see it in action, or just download the free trial to give it a spin. If you like, it's a fair $1.29 to keep it. Download hit here in the Marketplace. Thanks to an excited-it's-finally-here, masterrachow, for the heads up!

  • Well now that every single RSS reader client in the marketplace has Mango support how bout Rhapsody, Rdio, iHeartRadio and Slacker get off their asses and implement the background audio API into their apps??? Pandora, Napster and MOG why don't you get off your asses and actually code for the platform! It's been out for a year, so there's not one damn excuse to be had here!!!
  • Finally :) But I have little problem here: the buy now button links to a version 1.2 which it says is not compatible with my device. (I have v7720) Does anyone else see this?Edit: you can buy it in the marketplace directly
  • Sorry about the bad link, the 1.2 version is a old beta. In fact to link to the marketplace, you need the id of the app, but you get the id of the app only after submission... so you can't have it before submitting. The link is corrected in the 1.1 version (I've indicated that in the marketplace description of the beta, the message will be updated very soon)To buy the app, search "Fuse" in marketplace ;)1.1 version will be submitted tonight, with *le* english message (FFUUUU), and some minor bug fix
  • Confirmed - cannot purchase on 7720 (yet)
  • I purchased on 7720 (DVP). This usually happens when an app just goes live--try it again in a few hours and it will work.
  • buggy. Create a new group an d I get this frenchie speak in the data section. 'Aucune donnees atuellement'. I think it means your bagette is defrosting.
  • The developer says this will be fixed in 1.1.
  • *le* developer says sorry. FFFFFFUUUUU
  • Maybe this is part of the trial... But the feeds all reset to defaults each time I set up Google Reader and leave the app. Not spending money on this until I know for sure that GReader integration works well. Beautifully designed though!(PS. Aucunes données actuellement means that you have NO baguettes defrosting.. which is just a shame)
  • yeah that sucks, that's what kept me from buying the app, I wanna be able to test it out for a day or two without it resetting every time I leave the app. The trial version sucks, but the app is beautiful, best app i've seen on any platform so far
  • arrow22 : send me an email to fuse at feelmygeek.comPS : In the 1.1, the baguettes will be frozen with frog legs :D seriously, I hesitate to really put this phrase in the application
  • Really beautiful app, Weave paid was updated today too.. Tough choices for RSS reading on WP7.
  • Just for information the 1.1 version has been submitted with in-app youtube player, screen rotation lock and a lot of other things :
