Needs Update for Windows 10 Design Language

While it looks great, this is still very much a Windows 8 app. I like to use grid view (never understood why a feed aggregator should look like an email inbox), but Nextgen Reader doesn't allow you to set this as default and only allows horizontal scrolling. While this is fine for Windows 8/RT devices that focus on full screen applications, it becomes a real pain for split-screen multitasking. Add vertical scrolling and update settings please!

Great app, but where are the updates?

We need some fixes and improvements. UI update for Windows 10 and interactive notifications (eg. read, hide or save an article) would be welcome.

Love It

Just a workhorse, in the good sense. A very solid, dependable app. Scrolling two fingered touch on my laptop can be frustrating (sometimes reads as me swiping left or right - wish I could turn off that touch gesture), but works incredibly well overall.

One of my favorite apps of all time (especially since it worked on WinRT devices), but then I switched to a laptop with a high DPI screen, requiring 125% scaling. Now, everything is too small to read. Reading reviews, I see I'm not alone. It's a real shame that even MS can't get this font scaling right under Windows. I'll still leave it at 4 stars, since this app was so great on platforms (RT, WP, W8)starving for good apps.

By far the best news app

However, I would appreciate more "modern" design, title page with tiles etc. Nevertheless, it's only about a feel from reading, otherwise is Nextgen great.

it mistakenly marked all items read

I had it sync 250 articles, read those to the bottom of that list, marked them as "read", synced again -- now all 1500 articles are marked as "read" - even though I haven't read them! Also, it would be nice to be able to turn off the article view on the right. I just want to scroll through the articles with my right thumb - like we can on the Windows Phone version of Nextgen

Best option

Very nice app, love the interface but I'm not a big fan of the sharing option which only sends the link without the article title

Excellent, simple, beautiful. Awesome reader, perfect. Haven't seen an update for a while though.

Been using it for over 3 years

I got this because it was closet to the old iPad news reader I used. I would really like to see a "two column" mode and option for larger fonts on article titles. Still works great - the only thing I wish now is that it respected my large font settings better. I can make the reading text larger, but the UX stays small despite other Windows apps rendering larger.

Please update this app

This app used to be the best RSS reader in the store but it's been broken for quite a time now, it only displays last months news and it seriously need an update
