    Since flipboard came out, and is surprisingly bad, lets discuss which news reader is the best so that we know which one to use. I'll start by stating the pros and cons of next gen reader, which I believe is the best news reader.

    Pros: Smooth app (no lag), appealing, offline use, beautiful pin, lots of customization
    cons: for some the main screen might be too simplistic

    Be free to add on to or subtract from this.

    It's very laggy and it doesn't flip.

    You can try Dailyaha, it flips with 3D effect and has content from 15 global regions. I think its a pretty nice featured news app, and free of charge.

    Nextgen reader is the best(its paid but I have full version, as I downloaded it when it was free for sometime). Other one is magnify beta, its also a good one. Phonly is fine, but you can't use dark theme, as its available in pro version. Plash is also fine

    Magnify is the best news reader I've used on my Lumia. Period.

    If you have a 512 MB RAM device you might need to disable some of the fancy animations to keep it running smoothly, but apart from that it is great.

    Nextgen and Weave are my favourites, however - Weave has some issues on my 512mb device. It becomes unresponsive for a few seconds and then either crashes or freezes the phone. I think it has something to do with memory. I really prefer Weave's UI over that of Nexgen's.

    Nextgen is amazingly fast at loading articles. The main page isn't too horrible. Could use a UI overhaul though. But you can pin a section (say, Technology) as a live tile and that is all that matters to me

    Weave, no question (full paid version here), I have been using it from Windows Phone 7, after trying a ton of different ones back when I first got WP

    With all the new ones (and if you watch WPC, they sometimes become free for a day or so), I have tried at least 10-15 of the newer ones but, always come back to Weave. It's got it's minor issues but, over all, simple to use, easy to setup and gives the information I want when I need it....

    Best is no question Weave unless you need something fancy with possible performance issues..

    Weave, was great until last update a couple of days ago. Now It becomes unresponsive and then either crashes or freezes the phone. When it comes back up it notifies of "something went wrong" asks to email, I agree, yet no email is ever sent. Not using it until this is fixed.

    My two favorites are Nextgen Reader and Collector. NG is more text based, and Collector is more image based. Both are incredibly beautiful and functional.
