It attempts to be exactly what an RSS should be--a compendium of your chosen RSS feeds with a (mostly) easy add option and filtered folders based on the type of content. At first, the folders were a little slow populating but eventually loaded. I finally deleted the app after I couldn't get my smallest folders to load. Good luck and keep trying, plenary devs. Maybe I'll try it again after a couple of updates.

Fantastic. I have been looking for a feed app that I actually like using for years. This is it! So far I have no complaints. The purchasing model sealed the deal. I hope it proves to be very lucrative, because subscribing to an app that's for displaying someone else's content is ridiculous - no matter how good it looks. This was an instant lifetime purchase for me.

The best RSS reader I've found on Android. Would love to see more granular options for choosing colors for system-theme color schemes, along with possibly more granular control over heading and body fonts, font size, leading, etc., maybe even material you color support. Excited to see what else this developer does with it because they clearly have put a lot of love and effort into this app and it shows. I hope even more people find it and enjoy it.
