Nice app...would love to have support for additional names and servers. I had a minor problem that the author quickly helped me to fix. I love this app and I'm sure it will be a 5 star rating real soon!!!

Hi guys, I'm the developer of Groundhog. @Vlasac: the sorting options for articles are on the way, don't hold your breath because the time I can devote to Groundhog is limited, but I'll be done eventually. @terryzx: you mean several profiles? The multiple server support is on my TO-DO, along with it multiple profile support will probably arrive. @mjpt57: yes, my original idea for Groundhog was a easy and casual Usenet reader. But with the new Android devices already there (powerful phones) and the ones coming (tablets, Google TV) I'll turn it into something more complete (I'm evaluating the option to have a setting for basic/advanced interface). That said, Groundhog is GPL (open source) software, so if somebody wants to implement something and send me a patch I'll be more than happy to add it, you can browse/download the code at: https://launchpad.net/groundhog

Nice app, but posts are not in chronological order. Also, date and time should be visible in message list.

Having used the industry standard Forte Agent for nearly 20 years this is my first mobile Usenet reader. It does the job. It's more for casual browsing and the occasional post or reply. For the intense Usenet participants, it would become tedious after a while. It needs a filter option to weed out the spam, mainly from crossposts and certain domains that tend to allow spammers unfettered access to Usenet...

Will not fetch/display new articles I thought this was "the nntp app" for android. I was wrong...

Simply doesn't work. Connects to news server but can't find newsgroups

Good, useable nntp reader - but could do better This is a neat nntp reader. I use it occasionally and it does the job right. There are a few minor things that I miss: a dark scheme, ability to roll threads and download only headers. But overally it's already very nice, fast and stable - keep up!

Uninstalled right away Should not download the full article but only the headers at first. Don't know the other problems because uninstalled immediately.
