Nextgen Reader gets full Windows 8.1 support in latest update

Nextgen Reader is a fast, clean and beautiful RSS reader app for Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 that even has Feedly support. Today, the developers behind Nextgen Reader rolled out version two of their app, providing full support for Microsoft’s latest Windows 8.1 operating system.

In fact, with this full support for Windows 8.1 comes support for resizable Snap view, large sized Live tiles, and much more. This app has over 600 reviews in the Windows Store, with the majority of reviews having five stars. Here is the complete change log for version two of Nextgen Reader:

  • Added large size live tiles.
  • Support for portrait mode and 7-8″ screen devices.
  • Support for resizable snap views (or docked mode).
  • Snap app and open articles directly in side by side view.
  • Tap right edge or click three dots on mouse hover in articles list for quick actions.
  • Tap or click feed title in the grids view to open item directly in browser.
  • Share to Facebook and Twitter directly from app (Buffer support coming soon).
  • Quick access to mobilizers and better confirmation prompts for “mark all read”, etc.
  • Lots of other improvements and bug fixes.

The app will run you $2.99, but you can also give it a try for free. You can customize the app with a dark or light theme and even adjust the accents to your desire. You can even set the feed to summary, full article, or webpage. We actually fell in love with this app while testing it on our Surface tablet!
