fastReader - a TT-RSS Windows Phone 8 app

Hi comrades,

the first TT-RSS app for windows phone 8 was just approved from Microsoft. Have been a long way, as the MS guys are pretty picky about apps relying on hosted-only solutions. Anyhow, I managed to bring it through certification and here we go.

Check it out here: http://www.windowsphone.com/en-us/store ... fc7fdabec1

Oh my god, a reader for Windows Phone! Great, but its only for WP8. Could you please do the same for WP 7.8? Please! Please! Please! Please!

WP 7.8 is currently not on my radar.

There is a decision to make, if you start making an app. Should it be WP8 / W8 compatible or should it be WP7.x/WP8 compatible. So one platform is always left out.

As I plan to release a Windows 8 app, as well, I decided to drop the WP7.x path. Going now down to WP7 means completely writing the app from scratch for WP7 - furthermore: future updates would force me to manage two different code pathes.

I'll surely investigate this further to find a solution for a more compatible code base to be able to support WP7.x as well (presumably NOT 7.0 but maybe 7.5/7.8) but keep your expectations low, as this might take several weeks or won't come at all.

Thanks,
MC

Nice to see there will come a Win8 App, but I have also only a WP 7.8 device...

update: I got all libraries to compile with the WP7.1 SDK. (that's WP7.5 and WP7.8)
That doesn't mean there is a working version, but it will come.

Stay tuned,

fast Reader for Windows Phone 7.1 was submitted to the Windows Store today. The average submission certification takes about 5 business days, so we can expect the app to show up on Friday may 24th... As I'm not available for at least one week, I hope the submission process goes through without major issues and the app will be available on friday.

BTW. fast Reader for WP8 was updated to 1.1 a few days back.

Thanks,
mc

Hi, I'd be interested in using it but it's not available in the italian market. I can help out with the translation if you want.

Cheers!

The apps are available in all markets worldwide. My focus currently is on features and stability instead of localization which brings a lot more work than just localizing an app. You also have to provide screenshots descriptions and stuff in each locale. I'll drop this overload for now which definitely doesn't mean "no".

thanks for the offers, but I speak German and Italian my self. French, Spanish and Russian would be more interesting on future...

thanks,
MC

rocketdreamer, bilbo_b,

If you are looking for the WP7.1 version: It's not there yet and I'll update this thread, as soon as it is there.
If you run a WP8 device, please check out the link in the first post of this thread and click install or visit the link from your phone. - Otherwise open a ticket at MS or your carier.

The italian version is here: http://www.windowsphone.com/it-it/store ... fc7fdabec1

Please don't spam this thread when searching for a WP7.1 version asking when it is there - it'll be there if MS says it''s there.

thanks,
MC

Thanks for this. I am on WP8 and like the layout a lot. Curious though, the Italian version has a different color scheme, is that defined by the device color scheme? Also, is there a way to manually update or mark a feed category as read?

Thanks, Nice work.
