App works great for the most part, but if your connection is at all spotty, it's gonna waste tons of data timing out over and over. The amount of time it takes to time out should really be adjustable. Update March 14, 2022: My 4G connection is way better now, but the app still just times out over and over. I want to like it, but it simply does not work at all. I can sit and refresh the feed 20, 30 times, and it will not load it even once. It needs an adjustable timeout setting, full stop.

Thanks for the feedback! I hadn't thought about this scenario, but I have an idea how to fix it now that you've brought it up. Kepe your eyes peeled for the next release :)

Effort appreciated, the app looks nice and is easy to use. Still the issue of media displaying as an exclamation mark with "video player had an error" message. The videos are available sometimes but most of the time it displays an error. Also, the app info reads it was updated to include translate feature but that doesn't seem present on my app, looking forward to that feature!

The video errors are (mostly) fixed now, in the latest version! Only the "Saved" tab still occasionally throws, but will be fixed in the next version. Im curious where you saw the translate feature documented, but that will be in the next version! :)

I like it, it mostly works well though there's sometimes a few errors when loading replies, but it's dealable. My main issue is that I use the app to read up on Russians invasion, and the translate limit "(250)" can be irritating and I'm unsure what I may be missing out on. That's my only issue with my personal browsing!
