Unlike other Windows Mobile applications, this app is very user-friendly because of its huge onscreen buttons. The app is available for $9.89 USD, though its just a simple RSS app. Some basic apps on the Apple’s App store are available for as low as $0.99. But the touch friendly UI makes SmartRSS   worth it.

You can also try out the trial version, which allows you to add up to 5 channels – everything else is functional. To use this app on your Windows phone you will require:

.Net Compact Framework 3.5 Sp1
Microsoft SQL Server Compact Edition 3.5 Sp1 for Windows Mobile

Techie-buzz Ratings: 2.5/5
