Works great on my Note 20 Ultra currently on Andriod 10. It's fast and responsive. Easy to add feeds and easy to tweak the appearance as you like. The only thing is thumbnail images don't really show up. Maybe 1 in 100 headlines will show image. Not a big deal since you can turn them off.

I use 3 news sources. This widget works perfectly for one of them; on the next one images are not reflected; on the 3rd one images are not shown, and date is not getting picked up so the feeds are not in chronological order. I realise that the app hasn't been updated since 2013 and the last time the developer responded to a comment here was also in 2013. However neither the website nor the email address provided by the dev work anymore, so I thought I'll take my chances and post here.

The most pleasant looking RSS feed widget on the market. However, on some phones got the "no data available" message after a few hours, and nothing loads. I have to delete the widget, add it again, load back from a saved config file, and everything works - for a while, then nothing loads again. This happens more on some phones (Infinix Note 12) than others (Mi max 2). The last update to this app was in 2013, which was said to have addressed this issue. Hope it gets another update.
