One of the few RSS reader app with stunning UI.

shame you can't get the binaries from F-Droid, or even directly from Github.

If you're in the market for an Android RSS app, I've been using ReadYou recently and I'm very pleased with it. Available both from GitHub and F-Droid.

[-] noodlejetski@lemm.ee 5 points 2 months ago

I use Nextcloud for my RSS needs, so it's mostly just the default app from Nextcloud for me so far. I've had issues with ReadYou not recognizing a bunch of feeds when I tried to add more sources in the past, and when you straight up paste a website link, it wouldn't find existing feeds.

[-] Evkob@lemmy.ca 3 points 2 months ago

Like the other person who replied to me, I just use it as a frontend for FreshRSS and it works fine for that. But now you kinda have me wondering why I never bothered checking out Nextcloud's RSS, how do you like it?

[-] po_tay_toes@lemmy.sambands.net 2 points 2 months ago

I run NC News. It's in no way comparable to FreshRSS and have like only the official companion app for mobile use beyond the web interface.

The main benefit is that it's not another platform to run on one's server. On my big server I've integrated two FreshRSS's (one for text, one for video) into Nextcloud through iFrames, on my home hosted Raspberry I just wanted something simple that didn't require reverse proxies and other advanced setup. Thus NC News.

There used to be a couple but they didn't seen to be too well maintained the last time I checked. But to be fair, it's a niche implementation of what at this point is a niche internet tech.

I have it and its great

The only thing that's preventing me from use ReadYou is that it's still missing "Older first" reading order (and that's why I'm using Feeder).

[-] Evkob@lemmy.ca 3 points 2 months ago

Fair enough! Feeder is good too, and what I used before ReadYou. I usually just go to my unread articles, scroll all the down to the bottom and then scroll up from there.

[-] starman@programming.dev 3 points 2 months ago

Thanks for the link! I think it'll replace Feeder for me

[-] PoliticalCustard@lemmygrad.ml 1 points 2 months ago

Yes, this one is good too, very simple interface. I found it a bit tricky to find out where you import/export (but that could just have been me tapping randomly until something worked). I switched to Feeder when I got bored of ReadYou and now I guess it's Twine until another shiny thing comes along.

Have they added support for FreshRSS ?

Last time I checked they said they did, but they didn't.

[-] Evkob@lemmy.ca 3 points 1 month ago

I use it as a frontend for FreshRSS, works great!

[-] warmaster@lemmy.world 1 points 1 month ago

Thanks, I'll check it out!

[-] bizdelnick@lemmy.ml 1 points 1 month ago* (last edited 1 month ago)

I tried ReadYou. Looks fine at first glance, however I removed it after few days. Terrible UX. There are so many small annoying things that I even did not report them to the developer as I usually do.

Still looking for a replacement to Flym.

[-] catculation@lemmy.zip 8 points 2 months ago

Yeah they should put the binaries under release. But I think they didn't found a way to automate release with KMM.

[-] vort3@lemmy.ml 10 points 2 months ago

Is it local? No freshess or ttrss server sync?

[-] po_tay_toes@lemmy.sambands.net 0 points 2 months ago

I think some sort of sync capabilities is almost a must have now a days. My impression is that only power users use RSS and they usually have several devices, at least a computer and a phone.

Who doesn't have a dedicated toilet tablet for browsing RSS and registering poop quality, both very dependent on sync capabilities?

[-] PoliticalCustard@lemmygrad.ml 7 points 2 months ago

Thanks, it looks really nice and I'm always happy to try out a new RSS reader. As noodle said, it would be nice to be able to get it from F-Droid, I used the Aurora Store instead.
