Overall good app. Pages load quickly, no gui issues. Content is limited but I'm aware it's a new app. One issue did occur however. After about ten to fifteen min of reading the images failed to load on all threads. I had to force close the app, clear cache and restart it. Afterwards the images appeared as they should. It only happend once but it may be something to look into. Thanks for a excellent reader.

Hi

https://github.com/enricocid/iven-feed-reader/commit/c7791c7d1e4677fa1e7837f88814ca4ce35e8446

I've added this to clear cache programatically when onDestroy the listactivity, so when You click on a feed it will start with new cache:) this should be enough to avoid crashes related to the cache garbage collection
it will included the next update

The app is really smooth and nicely designed.

That said, Feedly support would be greatly appreciated!
Also a way to mark what has been read and what hasn't would make it easier to use long term.

wow. I love the UI. much smooth. are you planning to add feature/function that will enable users add/remove feed manually not from feedly(I see a request above)? would love to keep this app.

homescreen widget would be the best. i will switch to this app as soon as i can customize the feeds. thanks.

    this is cool, lightweight and it does the job pretty well.
    To those asking for 3rd party plugin support, I guess you should hold on.
    As this is early development, I believe Ivan will add all those features.
    The most important thing is getting stable first, :)

    Iven news reader 6.4 released with great news:


    Implement custom feeds right-to-left drawer layout (please use RSS 2.0 feedburner format)


    Thanks to a dynamic list, and a fab button which will autohide when list is scrolling, it is possible now to add all the feeds You want. Feeds will be stored into a sqlite database and saved on memory. Furthermore You can also delete them from the list


    - Resources clean


    I'm going to release the update also on GooglePlay and Github!:)

      Looks promising! Will it be possible to add Feedly integration?
