Feature Request: I would like to be able to filter elements by date , so that only elements which are newer than X days are visible. I'd give you 5 stars if you implement this :)

No widget ever appears I have an lgg3. I try to add a widget to my home screen, then it brings up a configuration screen. I can edit settings, add my feeds, and save the configuration but the widget never shows up on my home screen.

Very good It's a really simple, functional rss widget. I only miss some more appearance customization.
