NewsReader

it’s now submitted and should soon be available.
Updates are following…

Für deutschsprachige User:
Die Version wurde vom App Store abgelehnt weil angeblich nicht alles auf deutsch lokalisiert ist.
Möglicherweise liegt es daran, dass der News Reader per Default auch englischsprachige News abonniert.
Daher hab ich erstmal die deutsche Lokalisierung entfernt (die Lokalisierung beschränkt sich auf nur wenige Begriffe) um die App noch in diesem Jahr in den App Store zu bekommen.

NewsReader8

it’s almost ready!

I just need to finalize it, prepare it with tiles, icons and descriptions before I can publish it.
Browsing through differend feeds and articles is really fast and easy with it!

The first version will support english and german, feed finder but probably no search yet.
Because of the holidays it won’t be available this year.

btw: Passwords for Windows Phone 8 submission was rejected because of a bug with skydrive and cancel though I think this is a bug in the skydrive login itself I need to fix this first or a way to circumevent it. so unfortunately no Passwords for windows phone 8 this year too 😦

RSS Reader 2.0 is on it’s way.

with improved performance, new features and small changes on the UI.

Here are some teasers:

 

Update 2011/10/25

I think the new version works fine now. Just one more test tomorrow and I’ll submit it.

 

RSS Reader 1.3

This is probably the last update before mango (in fact I already have a mango version wich supports tile notification and fast resume).

It fixes a bug in the feed settings which didn’t save the image location option and adds the backup and restore functionality in the settings page. In order to use backup/restore, you need to install PhoneExchangeService on a Pc or server if you haven’t done this already.
PhoneExchangeService is a windows service which is used by ShoppingLists, Passwords and RssReader to upload and download files between a Pc and your windows phone.
