News reader apps for Windows Phone give you the info you want, when you want it

Trying to find time in your day to catch up with the news? Several news reader apps for Windows Phone can make that easy for you.

In addition to the photo-rich Bing News app, and Weave News Reader, the Conversations blog points to some other apps to consider from Feedly, the popular news-aggregator app. Among them: Phonly, a free, “beautiful and powerful third-party Feedly app that can be as personalized as you want. Add the topics and blogs you want to follow and Phonly will do the rest. The app also makes it easy to share articles via email and social media, and you can bookmark stories to read later.”

Phonly works hand-in-hand with Feedly.com, so “if you’re at your computer, adding topics and reading stories on your account is a seamless experience. Another useful feature is the ability to send and save articles to OneNote.”

Flux is another third-party Feedly app that provides a “stellar” offline reading experience that’s optimized for mobile. It’s 99 cents. Nextgen Reader ($2.99), also from Feedly, is optimized for low-powered devices, such as the Lumia 520, and can save content to OneNote, Pocket and other similar services.
