Text-Only RSS Reader is simple RSS reader that allows new RSS feeds to added at anytime. This reader does not store any newstories on the device. It only stores the RSS URLS. In addition, no external (internet) storage is used. It also gets the news on-demand. This means there are no background fetches - this is not available (at this time). This app can be described as sparce and spartan-ish – as in, rigorously simple, frugal, or austere.
Since this is a "Text-Only RSS Reader", this means that images listed in the RSS feed will be ignored. This also means there is no advertising - none is planned.
Lastly, since this is my first RSS reader it is likely to have a few warts. Currently, the [backbutton] does not work on Android. This will be resolved with the next release.
