Will add some of them. I had thought of adding all of them initially but it would result in flooding with the same piece of news from various sites. It defeats the purpose and increases data usage, needs more space, etc.

But still might add in a couple of them as they offer breaking and exclusive news.

Please add these two options in this priority order:
1) The ability to include or exclude feeds from the built in list (checkbox UI)
2) The ability to add your own feed url. You will likely need to specify supported content requirements.

Thanks for considering my requests.

I really thank you dev I followed you from the other thread about flowly. Thanks for putting this together. I'd definitely look at the sources in flowly because those are the a lot of the main android sources. Like someone posted above the ability to add or turn off feeds individually would be awesome. I know you're working with the appyet format so I don't know it's limitations but those would be the suggestions I have. A working replacement for flowly. Regardless thanks for putting this together.

The ability to turn off feeds is under development I believe.

I did not want the app to be flooded with the same news over and over again. The IFA 2014 week has started and if a new mobile comes out it will be reported in all Android sites and my app will have the same news over and over again! Anyways I will release an update later in the week to add more Android sources.

Guys please click on the Thanks button and more importantly give our honest reviews at the play store.
Also spread the word, I have only 20+ downloads.
