Best ever Been using it 6-7 years and has always been my favorite app/widget. Can't comprehend how RSS never caught on with the masses. I hope it never stops working!
This app is abandoned and one of the ugliest I've seen! It still looks like Android 4.4!!! Need a SERIOUS revamp design wise and more options such as adding a URL directly
Fall From Grace This used to be my favorite rss widget for the extensive customization options, but now it crashes EVERY TEN SECONDS, literally. What happened? Would love to go back.
No longer updates on Samsung Galaxy 4 Note My news widgets no longer update on my Samsung Galaxy 4 Note with the Aviate Launcher. I've had the phone for about 2 months, everything worked fine until about a week ago. At that time the widgets stopped updating, even if the manual refresh icon was pressed. I removed the widgets (I use 3 of them, one for Headlines, one for Sci/Tech and one for Entertainment) and added them back, configured them all again and they worked...for about 3 days. Now they've stopped updating again, again even if I press the manual refresh icon. Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Aviate Launcher Pure News Widget with Feedly I'd have rated this 4 stars prior to the update issue (there are some UI issues that prevent me from giving it 5 stars, and I'm a UI guy by trade), but since it doesn't update now, it's essentially useless to me and I've given it 1 star. I figure I'll give the developer a couple days to address the issue. If he does, I'll happily go back to 4 stars as it's a good widget/app! If he's unable I'll look for another option.
Absolutely Perfect I needed a replacement for Taptu, and I've finally found it with Pure News. This is combination with Feedly satisfies my need to stay abreast of daily news. Themes are a definite plus as well. It's absolutely perfect for me.
Been using it for 2 years. From Jellybean on Galaxy S3 to Lollipop on S5, it still works great. Maybe add a Google Now skin.
