Everything was fine. Set age limit of posts to one week. I added two podcast feeds. Loved functionality I was seeing. Literally half an hour later Flym had chewed through 1.4 GB of -- roughly half -- my monthly mobile data. Configuring "Retrieve the full text" in settings, or when viewing a podcast article, seems to download, then discard, the mp3 binary, and will do so every time I open the article again. Deleted, sadly.
Was using new+ before until the developer abandoned it. It was hard to find a reader with offline support since I don't have a data plan. I tried to write my own, but this is way better and I hope to contribute to this project in the future. It's simple and gets the job done. Being open source definitely helps and I hope a heathy community grows around this wonderful piece of software. What's great is that there's no server side component required like tt-rss, but this means syncing across devices is not possible, but I'm sure it can be developed with time if the use case is required. Great work and looking forward to version 2.
RSS feed reading function is fine, I also like its search feature to get feeds quickly. But, frankly, I chose it for its the *offline* mode. Even though everything was set to "wifi only", etc., this morning it ate 22MB of my mobile data. WHY???? Not happy as long as my tariff is capped at 150MB :-(
Very nice. It's clean and effective, it gets the job done, and the offline reading capability is the most important feature to me. The feature called "Retrieve the full text" is a bit confusing, though. What this means in practice is: "download the linked web page and try to guess which part of the page is actual article content". The latter part of this otherwise useful feature does not always get it right, unfortunately. Secondly, when opening the app, I'd like to return to the feed last viewed (or perhaps a selected "preferred" feed) instead of to the Unread view. (I didn't see an issue tracker on the Github page, so I thought I'd post them here.) Thanks for a very useful feed reader!
Awesome app, clean, fast, responsive and fluid. Having a blast coming back to the old way of reading news in a refined format. Apps like AppyGeek and NewsRepublic are spamming users with trackers and ads, but this app is completely functional and ad-less for free. Would gladly make a donation to keep it that way, thanks again.
Love this app. One thing makes me sad. I can not quit the program. To completely shut it down I go into the phone settings and close it there. Can you add a Quit menu option? I do not need Flym running all the time, just use it when needed. Thanks in advance.
- fix feed search failure issue
- improve some translations
A new v2 version is ongoing with a new UI and totally rewritten code. Stay tuned.
