TTRSS-Reader


This is a client application for the project "Tiny Tiny RSS" (from http://tt-rss.org/), a PHP-based online feedreader which runs on your own webspace. If you want to host your own feedreader, want a cross-device-solution and don't want to use Google Reader (for whatever reason) this is the app you want! This reader offers automatic update on startup, filtering articles by status and efficient browsing through categories and the virtual categories "Fresh", "Starred" and "Published Articles" as well as Labels you can define by yourself. You can browse the articles offline when they have been synchronized before and the ImageCache can be used to pre-load all included images from the articles too.

FAQ:
Q: Why can't I update this app ("Signature incorrect" error)?
A: Remove the application and install it again. Sorry about that but it's the only way. And not my fault. Someone included this app in a custom android build on your device or you installed it from a third-party-source and it isn't signed with my key, so there is no way you can update it.

Q: When I switch to offline-mode, how do I know when the caching is done?
A: There is no caching. The only difference to normal mode is that no connectivity is necessary and changes are stored locally. When switching to online again the spinning indicator should show while changes are uploaded. Caching occurs only when starting the app (everything except images) or the ImageCache is started (everything).

Q: Why don't articles appear as "read" when I did read them on my PC?
A: Most of the time this is no problem at all. But. There is simply no way to get this information from the Server-API. I have to guess how many articles could have been read since the last update of the local data and would probably transmit much more data then necessary in the end. So it *can* happen. But mostly it doesn't.

Q: Quote from the comments: "SSL doesn't work anymore -> deinstall"
A: Yeah, deinstall. Don't want people like you around. Thanks. My fault. I broke some functionality by trying to make the app more secure and I didn't have the resources to make sure this didn't happen. Mostly because THIS THING IS FREE. I fixed it btw, but people like you don't care. So yeah, deinstall please.


Please feel free to contact me via mail or on the project-page, I am happy to receive bug-reports, feature-requests, donations or (of course) also critique.

Recent changes:
== Version 1.80 ==
* Revert to default implementation of SecureRandom because the suggested bugfix from Google (http://android-developers.blogspot.de/2013/08/some-securerandom-thoughts.html) seems to crash on some devices. Due to this the SSL implementation "may not receive cryptographically strong values". I'm investigating solutions for this. Thank you for your patience. :)

Toller Ansatz, weigert sich nach 30 Sekunden weiter Kontakt zu meinem Srv aufzunehmen und killt sich dann selbst

Fullfeatured but VERY SLOW and VERY unstable At least for a reasonably big list of feeds

Ugly and dangerous The largest button in the app marks every article as read without a confirmation or undo. The articles themselves look bad, especially the dark gray background on the black headline text. Article navigation is also clumsy.
