This is my latest build with a couple of new features and changes. I’m currently traveling so have been doing bits of bobs along the way on planes and in cafe’s with free wifi. Hopefully haven’t made too many mistakes. New Features Include:
- Scalable fonts via the app bar when reading an article
- Pivot for the feeds to allow easy change between feeds
- Changes to backgrounds and live tiles to improve the look and feel
- General tweaks to increase stability and Speed
As always let me know how you get on and if you have any suggestions. New build is available here
Also if anyone has a good suggestions of places to go/eat/see in Melbourne or Sydney let me know

re Australia Ask @longzheng or @chriswalshie. They live there.
Live tiles look much better- would like one new feature, however.
Can I have an option to lock portrait mode?
As always, fantastic work.
Thanks, will try and add in the screen lock for the next build.
very good. can it have the sections like on the website for local and things? and a sport section?
or the features / magazine / click section
most popular/ most read? thanks
since 2.64, things seem to be a lot slower and can randomly crash when reading feeds. 2.63 was lot quicker at loading initially and stable
running on 7712 on mozart and 7720
Anyhow, the background task has stopped working and the app tells me that I have to many background tasks already running, despite it is only one and I even turned the other task off.
Is this a Mango issue or a problem with your app?
Any chance of adding a quiet time feature for the breaking news notifications? I’d like it to only toast me during daylight hours. 😉
Really like this idea, will try and add it into the next version. Thanks for the feedback.
