Nextgen Reader update adds image and search saving, new Pocket API support

Published by at

Nextgen Reader is probably the premier Feedly client for Windows Phone, which is why we make a beeline for any major updates. Version 5.5 is out today and includes a number of useful features, including saving images, saving searches and full Pocket v3 API support.

Since v5.4, which we covered a month ago, here's what's new in v5.5 of Nextgen Reader:

  • New: Save images to phone (just tap and hold in article view).
  • New: Article search is back with option to match title-only (please note that Feedly Pro account is required for complete search results).
  • New: Save recent searches automatically, so you don't have to type ever again.
  • New: Set default CC and BCC for emails.
  • New: Enable/disable flick gesture in article view.
  • Updated: Support for Pocket v3 API. Please re-authenticate your account. Also, fixes the save to pocket issues.
  • Lots of other improvements and bug fixes.

We took v5.5 out for a brief spin and tried out the two major new features:


Long pressing on any image now pops up 'save image' and it ends up in your 'Saved Pictures' album in Photos; (right) when searching within your feed article titles, previous searches are remembered and offered, for convenience.

A very nice update, Nextgen Reader goes from strength to strength.

You can buy Nextgen Reader here in the Windows Phone Store.
