    Wow I was really happy to see this and it got even better when I started the pretty client, at least until I realized it cannot update feeds and is not adapted to my regular wm6.1 os. So I had a look at their website and on the front page it says “news” and the top headline is this version launched almost exactly one year ago.

    I think this is the 15th reader I’m trying out. Most works well but not good enough to make me use it for my essential newsconsumption. Looking forward to see what they will do with this… if they ever get around to work on it again.

    I’m on WinMo 6.1 Professional, and it works fine.

    BTW, have you checked FeedMe (http://feedme.baxiabhishek.info), an RSS reader and podcast client I released a while ago.
