NewsSpot for WP8 Brings Full-Featured Google Reader Experience

There are quite a few Google Reader apps for Android, but this is not always the case on other mobile platforms. It’s well know that if Windows Phone 8 is going to succeed, either Microsoft or third-party developers will have to plug gaping holes in its app library—like for instance, limited Google Reader app choices. Now, WP8 has quite a good option.

XDA Forum Member FourSpotProject posted about NewsSpot, a Google Reader client for Windows Phone 8. It has the usual features of any good Google Reader app, like two-way syncing and offline reading options. Here are some of the other features:

– Gorgeous live tiles with headings and images
– Full lock screen integration
– Read whole articles in a beautiful Readability™ view
– Open YouTube or Marketplace links from within the application
– Change the read or starred status of an article within a list by using our quick actions
– Swipe or tap while viewing article to display the next or previous one
– Choose from three different themes: light, dark and golden white

The app has received fantastic reviews so far, and there haven’t been any bugs reported. If you’re an avid Google Reader user who has a WP8 device, this is definitely an application to check out.

For more details, go to the NewsSpot thread.

XDA Office Space: Frankenstein’s Perfect IM Client?

The portal’s decentralized XDA office lies in a Hangouts chatroom, where we discuss the latest developments that hit the blogosphere, critique them and figure out what we can do to add a new or original point of view. We came to love this little virtual office, which sees messaging 24/7 due to the international nature of our team.
