Today, Nextgen Reader gets a bunch of great improvements in its latest update to version 3.1. Let’s take a look.
Above is a screenshot of new subscriptions hub with featured section, and gone is “my feeds” section. Yes, we’ve moved all the feed management functionality to main screen itself i.e. you can pin/edit/delete a feed by simply using tap and hold gesture on desired feed.
Another most requested and important feature is smarter article view. Many a times, you’ll find something interesting to read by following links in an article. Now if that happens, you can simply tap on view button to mobilize it for reading. In fact, all of the actions – share/save/email now act upon the current opened link in your reading view. So, without further ado, below is the complete change-log for latest update. We hope you enjoy it.
What’s new in version 3.1:
- New: Smarter article view i.e. share/save/email/mobilize current opened link instead of original article.
- New: Dynamic subscriptions hub with featured section to find latest and popular feeds.
- New: Tap and hold to edit/pin/delete a subscription from main page.
- New: Pin to start (live tile) experience.
- Improved sharing on Facebook with embedded links.
- Default: Always use HTTPS for sync.
- Fixed: Always sort starred items by newest first.
- Fixed: Twitter authentication bug.
- Several bug fixes and enhancements.
In addition to above changes, Instapaper and Pocket (Read It Later) accounts are now available only in paid version.
Thanks everyone for the great feedback. Please keep the ideas and suggestions coming. Now that we’ve got the 3.1 release out, we’re rolling up our sleeves and getting closer to the biggest task: letting you have nextgen reader right on your Windows 8 PC/Tablet. Stay tuned.
