Ever since the arrival of Feedly or InoReader to the panorama of online RSS feed readers, it looks like the desktop software used for this purpose has gradually started to disappear. It's not fair because some developers are still trying to keep them alive (on Windows, as well as Linux and macOS) although the majority of them have to bend their knee and include synchronization with Feedly if they don't want to lose all their users.

A fast, clean, and powerful RSS reader for Windows 10.

In this case, we're going to introduce you to an excellent desktop reader reconverted into a UWP application, previously known as Metro in the times of Windows 8. We're talking about Nextgen Reader, a universal app that has arrived as a great alternative to online RSS readers.

How to use Nextgen Reader

When it comes to using Nextgen Reader, you're not going to need a tutorial or anything similar. Just download the application, sign in using your Feedly account and observe how the program synchronizes them so you can check the news without opening your browser. Easy, simple, and suitable for everyone.

However, it does have two major drawbacks: on the one hand, it doesn't send us notifications about new articles from our favorite publications and, on the other, it's a commercial you have to pay for. Its developer allows you to use the trial version for a short period of time but if you want to continue using it, you'll to pay some money.

All in all, it's a decent RSS reader that integrates perfectly into Windows 10 as it's a UWP app. However, we have to bear in mind that there are other desktop alternatives for free. The choice is yours.

Requirements and additional information:

  • Minimum operating system requirements: Windows 8.1.
