Would like the ability to "mark as read" by long pressing a group/entry. Other than that it looks nice, good work so far

I'm planning to implement such feature. (Also, give a possibility to mark as read "on server". sometimes is usefull, I think)

So, I think it will be available in the mid of the next week if you are interested.

Now for me the first priority is auto sync and sync of pictures, but after that I'll surely implement a widget (but, maybe in pro version).

What do you like to include in such widget? A list of articles (for selected feed, category) or texts?

Thank you both for the feedback!

Thank you for your job, it's a great lightweight app!
I use it as my everyday reader for 1 week, so far so good.
I'll wait for the auto sync but actually I don't really need it!
Thank you very much

1.0.beta3 was not very stable.
So, check out quick fix!

1.0.rc1 is much more stable now.

Also, you can just download JustReader from Android Market!

Hi everybody!

I've just implemented downloading of the images (view images offline). Do you want to try it?
If so, check out this version!
It's not very stable, but you can try and write here what you think.

It can be switched on in account preferences screen.
Next things I would like to implement are:
- possibility to stop synchronization process
- show synchronization status in notification bar
