RSS Central (Mango): App ReviewOctober 4, 2011 No Comments
There are tons of RSS readers out there now a days for Windows Phone. Some free, some not but they all differ as to which roadÂ to successÂ they choose to take. You have RSS apps like Fuse or Pulse that try to do it through looks, and let me be honest with you – those are two great looking RSS readers. To be even more honest, that isn’t the road that RSS Central has taken.
RSS Central tackles the Windows Phone marketplace from another direction. It attempts to be the best at feeding you articles. It does it very quickly, effectively and without any hesitation. If you are really serious about consuming as much information as possible in a shortened amount of time, then RSS Central is for you.
The app comes pre-loaded with a huge amount of RSS feeds already built into the application. It is a breeze though if you want to add your own collection of feeds. This RSS Reader isn’t without its set of tricks either. One thing I really like about RSS reader is the fact that you can set keywords to use, then you can filter articles depending on which keywords you have set up.
RSS Reader also has been updated to Mango so you get all the crazyfast Â app-switching, live tile and you can even pin subscriptions to start. The only real downside to the app is that is costs $1.29 while many RSS readers are free. If you are serious about your feeds though, $1.29 will feel like a steal.
RSS Central is a fast, powerful and easy to use application that can download and display RSS, Atom and RDF news feeds from web sites all over the internet. Its quick multi-download system will bring all the news feeds you want to your fingertips in no time, and will hold on to them so that they can be read even if you lose your internet connection.
RSS Central features an attractive and informative user interface, categorised news feeds, a feed search to discover new news sources, article search tools, article summary and full web page displays, read/unread article tracking, support for international characters, useful send to email/text message features, portrait and landscape support, plus a whole lot more.
RSS Central’s trial mode is fully featured, and just displays occasional “nag” screens while using the application. Please give it a try and see what you think.
New in version 2.0 (for Mango only): fast app resume, live tiles, background downloading, pin subscriptions to the start menu, share articles with social networks, compressed data downloads for faster operation, and more!
