My Software Project

I’ve been using my Surface since the end of October, 2012 and I have yet to find a decent news reading app which would load all the articles in the background and let me read their full text during my commute. I spend about an hour on the bus into the city and have plenty of time to invest on some reading.

As a bonus, I’d like to have each article be formatted for easier read.  Ads removed.  Instapaper and Readability do that, but I don’t want any of my users to have to sign up for those services.  I want my customers to deal with my app.

So I started coding the app in C++ on top of Windows RT.  The home for my project is here: http://windowsnewsreader.codeplex.com. I’d like to invite other developers to read and contribute.  It’s under Ms-PL license, Microsoft’s Open Source.
