    I'm bumping my review up to five stars because I've noticed that the dev is actively squashing bugs. Although I would like the ability to refresh articles automatically at a preset time every morning. Also, when I retrieve the full text of an article, the loading animation won't stop until I hit the back button and re-enter the article.

    I have been using rss readers for some years and when the last one was updated to something that was annoying I grudgingly uninstalled then started the search for something simple to use to match what I had. Stumbled on this and wish that I had found it earlier :)

    Nice to be able to filter out nuisance items in rss feeds. This is the only rss reader I could find with a filter.

    Thank you for developing this wonderful app. It's not fetching rss from websites where cloud flare DDoS protection is active.

    While this is a great app, it could be a blessing for the visually impaired/senior citizens if the font size could be improved to double of the currently available text size. NOTE: It could be a really humane addition and the visually impaired/ senior citizens can't read newspaper and solely rely on their phone for news. Thanks in advance!
