News Reader Pro was created as an entry for the WinSource Windows Phone official application contest, in which it placed third. The app is well designed and provides a pleasing user experience – with fast page navigation, tile and toast notification and features like social sharing and youtube video launching.
While the app can be used as an alternative reader for WinSource, it is primarily provided as a base for developers to create their own great reader apps for other websites. We think developers can use it to understand a lot about using the above features, within the context of the MVVM Architecture. You can also try it out on the store here.
Note also that the project owner won a Lumia 800 for this effort (see blog here for more information)
