Reading news oldest first sounds about as strange to me as marking stuff as unread, btw. Even then it's dumb because it assumes you open the feed next time when "later" has finally come, otherwise you'll just keep marking shit as unread again and again like a monkey with nothing better to do.

>So by the way: Can you bring back showing oldest articles first? Or did this option just move somewhere I didn't find it?

It's right there in the actionbar.

I hope you realize how ridiculous this sounds. The reality is that there's space for 3 major functions on the UI now thanks to google and you want this kludge to be one of them because of this painfully elaborate scenario that requires a paragraph-long explanation and careful control to sorta-kinda work for you. It should be very obvious why this isn't gonna happen.

e: anyway I think that's about enough about marking shit as unread. It's not going back on the toolbar, either get used to it or switch to something else, I don't really care either way.

The exit on back is biting me every single time too. Is it possible to show the drawer on the back button press, instead of exit?

Just wanted to chime in on olest first. I like the grouping and within the group I also set to read oldest first. The reason is for feeds from discussion baords. You have to read from old to new to get the flow of the discussion. For example, on the tt-rss forum feed, watching Fox's growing "admiration" for the skill of the Android UI designers from the past to know is quite entertaining. Just wouldn't be the same to start with the current state of total disgust and abject scorn and go backwards to when he thought they were merely incompetent idiots. The build up is everything!

Oldest first is not going anywhere, relax.

e: if anything it's easier to deal with now what with not having to go into preferences to switch sorting.
