Here we are today with version 4.5.0 of the NewsBlur Android App. This is a great release because we took our time to update and improve a number of things about the app.

The app now has the common header shared between all of NewsBlur’s first-class clients (web, iOS, and Android).

Here’s the full changelog for version 4.5.0 (October 2015):

  • Reduced CPU and battery usage
  • New activities/interactions list
  • Updated feed list UI
  • Explainers for empty lists
  • Support for more types of alt/title text on images
  • Better error messaging
  • Tons of bug fixes, especially around offline usage

It’s a free download and continues to get faster and more reliable. If you want to vote on which features you’d like to see next, comment here on NewsBlur’s GitHub repo.
