What’s new in version 2.0?
- Read articles are now “grayed” out (i.e. they appear dimmer than the non-read articles) making it easy to determine what you’ve already read.
- Ability to turn on/off the “FavIcons” in the article listing. If you are on a limited data plan then you might not want to include the FavIcons to reduce data usage. This can be configured in the settings.
- A new menu option, this article should be blocked, has been added when reading an article. If you feel the article should have been filtered out for one or more reasons, simply select this menu option and it will provide a formatted e-mail message so you can notify us. We will use this feedback to better tune the article filters.
- Miscellaneous filter updates.
In the next version (v2.1) we will be providing a Windows Phone 8.1 version (we’ll still have an 8.0 version as well) that will include the ability to share articles using apps other than just e-mail (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, etc.).
The free trial version never expires but is ad-supported. However, you can opt to buy the full version if you do not want to see the ads.
