I just released a simple WP8 client app for For those who do not know, NewsBlur is a service that is competing with Google Reader. Or should I say was competing since Google is shutting Reader down.

Like many others, the news of Reader being shut down got me in search of replacement and in NewsBlur I have found a very good service that satisfies what I need from it.

Back to my app! The version that just got published in WP marketplace is very simple and gives you only the ability to browse and read stories within your feeds. I plan to add new functionality within the next few weeks. I have just submitted v1.1 for certification. This version brings the ability to signup for NewsBlur service, add new feeds, some performance improvements and other code changes to improve stability.
