NextGen Reader goes on sale ahead of WP8 update

Published by at

NextGen Reader is our favourite Google Reader client on Windows Phone, and it has seen a lot of development, which is showing no sign of slowing down. We've received word from the author that version 4 is due out some time around the 20th of January, and this version bring a huge amount of improvements. Until version 4 is available, the developer has also reduced the price of NextGen Reader too.

The standard price of NextGen Reader is $1.99 (around £1.23), but has been reduced to $1.29 (£0.80), so it's worth picking up (if you haven't already) before the new version arrives.
