Android client: open in browser

Postby pcause » 30 Dec 2013, 16:26

When I am scrolling through the article list in the Android client I often see an article I know I want to open in the browser (see full content). To do this I have to tap the article to get the title on the left side and the article excerpt on the right and then tap the headline. Could you add an 'open in browser" to the tap and hold menu in the main view (feed on left and title/date on left)? A "Share" in the tap and hold menu would also be great.

Thanks.

Are you yawning yet. Here's hoping you are oooohhhhh sooooo bored and ready for the interesting challenge of adding this exciting, groundbreaking feature.

EDIT: But adding to the Android app, "Display on loading" per feed; such as "Feed View" or "Web View" or "Always Open In Browser" would be nice. Especially for those sites that like to only include the first paragraph of content in their feeds and you have to click through anyways.

Nah, I'm definitely not too bored to deal with android shithole of an ecosystem right now.

For example:
Long Press on FEED NAME
Window pops up with:

* Browse headlines
* Mark read
* Place shortcut
* Unsubscribe

Add a 5th item to that list, "Feed preference" ("Display on loading" or "Content display mode" is another way of saying that) similar to whats in desktop version of TTRS when you right-click and choose "Edit feed"...

Add the "Feed preference" option for always displaying that single feed inside the app ("Feed View") or always calling an Android browser to display the feed ("Always Open In Browser")

Attached screenshot of TTRS desktop prefs as an example for Android feature suggest.

Nah, this sounds like it would break consistency too much. You'll have to endure long tapping.
