Good, useable nntp reader - but could do better This is an excellent nntp reader. I use it occasionally and it does the job all right. There are a few minor things that I miss though: a dark scheme, support for more than one nntp server and downloading only headers. But overally it's already very nice, fast and stable - keep up!
Great for simple reading Usable offline mode ideal if only using wifi. Very good for a free product and if your use is for chatting not binaries in a small number of groups. Also helps cut down crosspost conflagrations.
Not what a news reader should be. Downloads entire bodies instead of headers, fails in spring threads. Have a look at the late David Wong's work on SourceForge for ideas on making this right.
Not bad for a free newsreader There are some which are paid for apps which don't do anything more than this. I've been using a Windows based client called Forte Agent for about 20 years now (or however long it's been out). It's probably a bit much to expect similar functionality from an Android app but I'd like to see at least multiple user posting (ie, use different usernames for different NGs) and something that should be mandatory - cross posting filtering.
RETARDED! Only downloads full articles, not just headers. Downloads OLDEST articles first. Takes FOREVER to get to current articles. Optimus V
No way to sort posts or threads making Groundhog impractical for large newsgroups. The color coding is confusing for NGs with dozens of posters.
