Review from David Lewis
Nicely done This is now the preferred RSS reader on my tablet. Lose a star while there is no easy filtering for articles. Say, by tag, date, location, importance, category.
I want to like it I decided to revisit the app and see if it had improved from my previous review. I was overjoyed to find that it had. The only problem still nagging me is that when your feeds refresh/update, the home screen will "jump" from your current position to somewhere unknown. If you have the "mark as read on scroll" option activated, many news items get marked even if you've never seen them. This is, unfortunately, a deal breaker as it impairs regular use of the app. It randomly crashed on me as well.
Slow to start, but pleasing and functional design Very slow to load initially. I guess it has problems reading the database of all the saved feeds (gReader has no such difficulty). Once loaded, the app is fast and smooth, well organized, and the interface is visually pleasant. Still, the initial load time is so long that I don't use this in favor of faster alternatives.
Beautiful app needs a lil more Love the app but would like to see a few more things added. First I think a quick line to Pocket should be added to each feed. Secondly, all links to apps from Google play should direct you to the Google play store app not the Google play website. Other than that this is a great app. Keep up the good work.
Best reader but widget always missing many pics Probably the best reader I've tried. The only major problem I have is that the widget is usually missing about 75% of the pics and it never truly synchs at the 1 hour intervals I've set. It's more like once per day which is really annoying. Would Greenify affect this? Every time I check the Amber is never Greenified so I can't tell why this is happening. Very frustrated.
Lots of bugs The list widget has 2 bugs that bother me. Sometimes it stops refreshing until you remove and add the widget again. In addition, full screen and immersive reading options simply don't work within the widget. In addition, the image cache doesn't work properly and the app freezes regularly. I can't believe this is a paid application.
