Love it!

I don’t support the way Twitter is being run at the moment, but it was my only way to get news notifications. Now that i (maybe temporarily) deactivated my Twitter account I was looking for an RSS feed app, this app tick’s all the boxes for me, thanks devs!

Super RSS reader 😻

4/5 stars because:

Some settings are hidden. Took me a while to stumble on them by accident.

Also, there is no Nostr integration yet.
