Best news reader ever! I've looked for and tried many news reader widgets in the past, desperately looking for something that would neatly display and scroll through my google reader subscriptions. This app/widget has the best customization and appearance out of any. Not to mention clicking on articles takes you to the original article not the reader app, AMAZING! Easy to configure and use. The best reader widget of all time!
Great features, but buggy This app has all the great features that I want in an RSS reader widget. I love having the ability to customize so many things, especially the multiple tabs within the scrollable widget. However, it's sad to see so many basic functional bugs in an app with so much potential. The widget refresh and tab switching do not work reliably. Most of the time changing tabs doesn't change the items displayed in the widget. I'd love to see this fixed and would gladly pay for a fully functional version of this app.
Problems when no network connection available Finally a news widget again but it has problems when the device doesn't have a network connection (airplane mode, disabled in the settings, etc.). I switched my phone into airplane mode and the widget told me that the servers can not be found. On my tablet (which only has wifi, no other connection modes) I got the same when the tablet wasn't connected to any wifi access point. 5 stars when this is fixed. Otherwise very good widget.
Very nice! Looks good, works well and it is available in 4x4. Well done! The only criticism I would give is that the word limit feature for content doesn't work and it would be nice if we had the choice to remove the coloured bars on the side in transparent mode. Thanks for your hard work!
Good, could be great with updates This is one if the better RSS widgets I've used. Unfortunately there are a two issues that make it less than perfect. First, although the user can define the font sizes even the largest fonts are small and can be tricky to read, particularly in articles with a lot of text. Second, when the user clicks on a story they are forced to use a horrible lightweight browser built into the app. There is no way to open links in the default browser nor can the user copy the URL to move it into a real browser. This is VERY annoying and stops this from being a seriously great rss reader.
External Browser Awesome concept. Only thing preventing a 5-Star rating is the ad supported internal browser. I'd love to pay for a premium ad-free version offering the ability to use my personal browser.
