RapidRead Forum Reading App for WM
Android members have Tapatalk and they seem to be very happy with it, but how about Windows Mobile device users?Till now, there were some very small efforts to address this, but nothing solid. Now, XDA member TeDeV presents RapidRead, a great forum reading application without the need of a web browser. You can add XDA to read your favorite threads and also any other forum you regularly visit.

Working on WM6.5 and up and should work on any resolution.
