Reinvented Feed Viewer for Windows Phone 8.1

Last half a year was revolutionary for Windows Phone from a developer perspective. Windows Runtime was extended from Windows 8.1 to Windows Phone 8.1. This is a successor of Silverlight environment which all apps are built on. Feed Viewer was redesigned from the ground up to take advantage of a modern Windows Runtime. The benefit for user is a fact that Feed Viewer downloads latest content in the background. Device will cache fresh content without need to run an app. This allows reading of the latest content in offline mode. It is also possible to subscribe to multiple sources at once. Mainstream sources were divided into categories. But the biggest improvement is fluid swiping between articles.
