Great RSS Reader - I was already a fan of the original Flym News Reader. The new version has some very nice features such as "Remove Duplicates" that the original doesn't have. Unfortunately, it doesn't have the capability to move the app to my SD card. Probably not a problem for some phones, but mine has limited internal memory. *Update: Won't load news articles. May have to go back to old version. *Update: Don't know if dev made changes, but seems to be using a lot less memory. Awesome!

I have tried many, many newsreaders and I like this one the best. It is easy to select the items you want a place them in a favorite category for reading later. I don't know anything about the underlying technology but the articles end up in nice, readable text unlike other readers. Also,, as far as I know, there is no interaction with a remote server. A nice feature that I use is that you can send the articles as a tab to Firefox on your desktop computer. Using this, you can select your articles efficiently but read them on a better screen. Unfortunately, that requires a few extra keystroke. I would love to be able to select my favorites and then send them all at once to the desktop with a single command or command sequence. I don't believe that is possible now.

Lot good but several serious issues. Does not refresh on open despite setting. Once refreshed new articles can not be seen until you change list views (new/all/back again). Usually fails to show content in reader view. No toolbar in browser view so disjointed using OS back button at bottom then app back button at top to return to list. Big bright colored squares next to every article is largely pointless and needs option to hide. Some times a feed is full of spam ad links.
