Did you consider using http://viewtext.org api to generate a sanitized reading experience?

This looks really cool, thanks for sharing it with me.

Looks easier to integrate too but a call to another service isn't always reliable

Anyway I will try to implement and see if it works

If you didn't want external service, you could scrape content (word density of a page) in the app via a WebView attachedproperty

That would be a really nice feature to see the all images and links - that is the only thing I miss in the Windows 8 RSS Reader.

By the way - I notice that the horisontel scrollbar on the GroupedItemsPage does not work with mouse scroll. Is that by purpose? Anyway - I can't figure out how to change it to work.

Thanks!
