Nextgen Reader v2.5 is here! We just released the most exciting update ever with a cool new feature tagged as “The Amazing Everyday” (yes! same as Nokia’s tagline for Lumia devices).

  • Around 20-30% faster sync.
  • Beautiful reading experience powered by Readability based on app theme.

    I was lucky enough to get free access to next gen 2.4 by you guys but now if i go to market I could see only buy option instead of update.

    So the license you distributed was only for 2.4?

    • No, the app will remain unlocked even after the update. :)

    How do I create folders? I’ve seen screen-shots with folders but I can’t find an option to create one.

    Also, the Al-Jazeera news feed only opens a summary natively and I alwys have to launch the mobilizer (instapaper I prefer) version. Is there a way round this?

    Thank You for the app. It is hands down the best app on WP7. The attention to detail and the usability is stupidly good.

    • Go to manage sources hub, swipe right till end and then switch to “my feeds”. Tap on a feed to open “Edit feed” page and then click “select folder” list picker and choose “Add new folder…”.

      In future updates you’ll be able to set a default view for a feed.

      I hope that helps. :)

    My live tile has never worked. I’ve tried toggling the live tile option on and off several times, as well as restarting the phone. Also, unpinning/re-pinning the tile to the start screen. I’m on a Lumia 900.

    Any ideas?

    (besides this, great app!)

    • Hello Chris, Can you please check the background task is enabled in phone settings -> applications. Also, send feedback/mail from app and I could help you further. Thank you!

        Thanks for the reply. The tile is now “live”. Thank you for the great product.
