RSS Junkie (RSS Reader)

RSS Junkie (RSS Reader)


RSS Junkie, a RSS reader with support for offline reading and push notifications. Add any feed you want by sharing the RSS feed using a browser with RSS Junkie, or use one of the builtin presets. Special layout for (7") tablets. Feedback is welcome (please use the market feedback button or the feedback option in the app).

RSS Junkie uses it's own server infrastructure for push notifications, so you will get your alerts about new RSS items really quick. An additional advantage is that your phone will consume less battery as it does not have to check for new items each couple of minutes. To offer these feature we do not use Google Reader as backend (and there is no Google Reader sync). We use 'green' servers, which are power-efficient and uses environment friendly power.

Features:
- Push notifications using GCM (nearly realtime, in comparison to polling it is faster and uses less battery)
- Offline reading
- Star your favorite items so they are remembered
- Efficient communication protocol, so it saves you bandwidth/datalimit (all the heavy work is done on a server, compressing both images and text)
- Tablet layout (with high quality images) for Nexus 7, Nexus 10, Asus Transformer, Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, etc.
- Android 2.2+, but specially designed for Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) and Jelly Bean (JB) (for devices like the Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 4 and the Samsung Galaxy S3)
- Presets for popular channels: CNN, USA Today, BBC News, Engadget, The Verge, etc.
- Green/Blue/Dark color theme
- Pebble Smartwatch notifications
- OPML import/export

RSS Junkie displays ads to recover some of the costs of the infrastructure. As an option, you can buy RSS Junkie in the main menu (and ads are not displayed anymore).

Please contact me to resolve any issues, or if you have any suggestions.

Nice simple interface, but feed problems I've enjoyed the simple interface to swipe through easy to add feeds, optionally visiting the original site. Occasionally though my feeds reset and send everything as new. Lately it is constantly duplicating, making the app unusable. Farewell.

Push broken ......again! ** Push server down again since 19th Sept. Was down in June last. Seems this is a recurring theme. Please fix** ... Thanks for fixing the push. This is a great app and i miss it when it breaks. Nice to see the development team respond to issues. Thanks, keep up the good work. If possible in the next release, any chance of putting a self check to advise the push server is not responding? Would help with diagnoses.

Great app Only thing its missing is the ability to set the interval at which the RSS feed is checked. Dev is awesome!
