Version 4.0 (Nov. 2014)
----------------
* Offline reading and story syncing. Stories read while offline will sync as soon as you’re back online.
* Option to also store images from stories for offline reading. They do take space, though.
* A dark theme for reading at night.
* An option to mark stories newer than a story as read.
* Major backend improvements for faster story loading and transitions. This app should feel like new.

Recent update had made this unusable. Feeds no longer sync, app force closes, opening feeds incredibly slow...

Used to be so good Now it just crashes constantly. Started about with the offline reading. I'm really disappointed.

Update issues Lag, sync issues, poor response times, and no search. Please fix.

Latest version is just too bad I'm a subscriber and while the earlier app versions were lacking in functionality, it was usable. Not the same with these latest versions, it tries to update *all* stories (why exactly?), adds fancy task queuing that just keeps tripping on it's own shoelaces, and simply cannot handle many feeds (a subscription feature). The end result is always the same: the app crashes. This needs to be fixed ASAP and testing needs to be improved (count me as beta-tester). I really don't want to have to change newsreader!

After update, now unusable Crashes every few minutes when I'm reading. Am connected to Internet the whole time, same problem on cellular and WiFi.
