The basic idea...

"The basic idea behind open source is very simple. When programmers on the Internet can read, redistribute, and modify the source for a piece of software, it evolves. People improve it, people adapt it, people fix bugs. And this can happen at a speed that, if one is used to the slow pace of conventional software development, seems astonishing...
...The Open Source pages exist to make this case to the commercial world."    - Introduction to Open Source -

* TTRSS-Reader

market download NOTE: I won't respond to ratings on the app anymore since I really don't care for your bad reviews if you don't manage to write me about your problem by filing a bugreport or at least sending me an e-mail (!

This is a client application for the project "Tiny Tiny RSS" (from, 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.

? Swipe for faster browsing
? Optional navigation with volume-buttons
? View and download attached media files
? Cache articles and images locally
? Share URLs
? Easily mark things as read, starred or publish/comment them
? SSL with self-signed certificates
? Fast JSON-Parsing with stream-based parser GSON
? Scheduled updates via Tasker/Locale
? Layout optimized for tablets
? Dark and light themes available
? many more, Changelog and Feature-List can be found on the project-page...

You need to enable the API for the user-account in the user-preferences.

• "modify/delete SD card contents": Download of attached media files, ImageCache.
• "full Internet access": Connection to your Server.
• "view network state": Check for mobile network/wifi.
• "control vibrator": Vibrate when last article is reached.
• "wake lock": Keep CPU running, necessary for the ImageCache.

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.
