RSS Central features an attractive and informative user interface, categorised news feeds, a feed search to discover new news sources, article summary and full web page displays, article search tools, read/unread article tracking, support for international characters, a useful “send to email” feature, 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.
Before getting my Windows Phone 7 device, I had an HTC Touch Pro2. One of the applications that came pre-loaded on it was Ilium software’s RSS Hub. This rapidly became one of my most-used applications. When I moved to WP7 I tried a number of the RSS apps that were available, but none of them worked in the way I wanted or offered the features that I was looking for.In true programmer style, instead of compromising with one of the available alternatives, I set about writing my own application. RSS Central is the result. It is functionally inspired by RSS Hub and uses a similar approach to displaying and organising its content. I also used the opportunity to clean up a few of the little annoyances that I found with RSS Hub. I hope you like the end result!

One area that the Adam was looking to improve things further was with a little bit of branding. The new logo I put together, whilst very simplistic was put together to try and play on the traditional RSS icon, whist emphasizing the central ‘tag’ in it’s layout to create something a little more unique.
Several versions were created for different uses and scenarios, including Marketplace submissions, various splashscreens, and Metro style tile icon tested against WP7 accent colours, ready for live updates.
The author Adam Dawes has done a tremendous job in maintaining the application, adding various new features with the most recent submission (version 2.3) has added several new languages to make this truly the best option for News Feed Reading on a Windows Phone Handset.
