Discourse lets you to keep up with your favorite news sources (including feeds from Twitter lists and searches) in a clear, picture-rich, easy to read newspaper-like format. There's also a selection of visual themes if you prefer more variety (including Dark, of course).
Create your own 'Sections' of news, combining one or more of the large number of included feeds, a topic of interest, Twitter searches and lists, or by searching for and adding fully custom feeds of your own.
You'll be able to read the full content, images too, of the majority of articles right from within Discourse, even for custom and Twitter feeds.
- 'Topic Sections' use keywords to maintain a set of up-to-date news articles about a particular topic. (Powered by Bing, Google and Yahoo)
- 'Twitter Sections' use the powerful search and List facilities of Twitter to bring Tweets into Discourse (Twitter account required). Discourse will give you the full readable content of links in many of those tweets.
- Import your Twitter Lists as Discourse sections right from the main Discourse page - just use the AppBar.
- Import whole sections and individual feed subscriptions from Google Reader: Do it soon, before Google Reader is shut down in July.
- Share your section definitions and articles with others using the Share Charm
- Share individual articles into Discourse using the Share charm from other apps so you can read them later.
- Support for many audio and video podcasts (those with audio and video enclosures)
- Optimized for great execution on Surface & Windows RT machines
- Pin a live tile to your start screen for sections, including custom sections (Twitter feeds currently not supported for live tiles).
- Import and Export your RSS and Atom feeds (as OPML files) and section definitions (as SECTIONS files). You can also export and import from SkyDrive, just use the picker and choose SkyDrive.
- Once your sections are created, simply running Discourse will sync your news and you can then go offline if you wish.
- Search for articles across your sections using the "Search Charm".
- You can also save pages to Discourse's "Saved Stories" section so you can read them later, offline, at your leisure.
- Highly configurable via the settings charm.
- Twitter search required a Twitter account and uses the standard twitter search syntax. Details here:
New in this update:
1. Better support for many podcast style feeds, and for audio, video and YouTube links in Twitter feeds.
2. Added a new main menu command: All Unread Articles - jumps to special section that contains all unread articles from sections other than Saved Stories.
3. Saved stories that have been read can now be unsaved from the columns view (use the AppBar)
Bug fixes (particularly in Twitter link handling), updates, and performance improvements.
Many thanks to everyone who contacted email@example.com - it's the very best way to get the fixes and features you want.
