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.

LG G4 Could Feature a… 3K Display?

According to myLGphones, a version of the LG G4 will not feature neither a 2K nor a 4K display - but 3K. If you are anything like me, your reaction to this news will be confusion. While we don't have many details about the sources of this leak, it has apparently been confirmed true by a poster at hardare.fr that gave some more details on model names for each version of the upcoming LG flagship. However, these leaks don't point towards all G4...
