Last month I reviewed the great Readly/RSS reader NextGen Reader which is my personal favorite reader available for both Windows and Windows Phone. You can read that review here and in that review I point out that the app is a Universal app. That means if you buy it for Windows or for Windows Phone, you get the counterpart as part of the license. Normally this is $2.99 but this weekend you can pick up Nextgen Reader for both Windows and Windows Phone for only $2.49. Do yourself a favor and get this great app if you read a lot of RSS news and have a Feedly account.
While eReader apps have come and gone – along with their services – the one constant that has remained is Amazon’s Kindle. The Kindle app has been available for Windows Phone for some time now and its performance and stability has certainly improved over time. The biggest challenge with the app remains feature parity when compared to the iOS or Android version of the app. It is an area that Amazon could and should improve this app for Windows Phone users (and for Windows as well I might add) to get the full benefit of all the features available from Amazon on the platform.
