Perfect Thank you very much for publishing a no nonsense RSS reader for Android! True to its name, Sparse rss is free, small, fast enough, ad-free, non-invasive, unintrusive and easy to use, and it offers only essential functionality. For me, that makes it perfect. TIP: Want to share an article? While reading it, tap the "Goto link" button at the bottom of the screen. Then, after the article loads in your web browser, use the browser's sharing feature to share the article via email, text, etc.

Opinion... Small application, but very efficient.

by Lineum the 10/15/2011

Beezer! Just aggregates RSS, no irrelevant features and no ads. Has sensible options such as disabling image downloads. Menu buttons in awkward order though.

I want some more stuff Hi, ´this app is very usefull for me and just because of this I ask for more stuff. When I sync my rss sometimes I don´t know if the app is running o has crash. Is very difficult to put a clock or a wait message beside the name of the rss so people can know if the app is sync Regards

NO ADS! Works like it says. It's not bad. Worth trying for sure. IT WOULD BE NICE IF IT COULD RECOMMEND ARTICLES ON TOPICS YOU LIKE. Thunderbolt
