Google Reader at its ‘fastest’
NextGen Reader Review
by on May 1, 2012
We’ve all seen the proliferation of RSS readers on every application market going, and WindowS Phone is no exception.
Next Gen Reader is an odd application in that it ties itself firmly in as a ‘Google Reader’ but also offers a butt-load of other functionality as well, allowing you to view Twitter, Facebook and other social feeds too.
But let’s focus on the headline stuff, and we’re pleased to report it manages that pretty goshdarn well. After a simple login you’ve got access to all your feeds, and more importantly you can choose to view them all at once or by group – something a lot of other apps fail to manage.
The UI does leave a little to be desired if we’re honest, but there’s enough going on to make sure that you don’t really mind the boring layout – plus you can change the colours too.
Another neat feature is the Live Tile, which will update when there happen to be unread stories and will show a picture and the headline too – pretty neat for either the low user or the person who likes to flick through a lot.
In short, a great app, and worth the cost up front.
