Is there a Flipboard alternative for W8?

I find Flipboard too confusing and limited. To be specific, the way it handles magazines. If I create a magazine, it's not accessible from the start page of the app. And when I do access them, I than have to select each source separately to read entrees.

Is there something else that works more like Nextgen Reader?

Yes, I could use Nextgen, and I find it amazing for quick news reading, but magazine like UX of Flipboard is superior when reading something immersing.

So, it there any alternative?
