[Android Client] Select folder on startup

Hello.

Thanks for the android client, it's a very good piece of software.

In the play store version it's only possible to select open fresh articles or nothing at all, as a switch

Usually, I always open the same folder that is not the fresh folder, so...

Would it be possible to implement an option to select the folder that is opened on startup?.

Thanks a lot.

fresh feed is there because it's a one size fits all thing: in a news reader it kinda makes sense to show latest stuff on startup. however, adding this option definitely pushes towards the too much customization, imo

in short, no.

You could alao use filters and article scoring to make Fresh Articles only display arcticles which are within the folder you want to see.

e.g. apply a negative score to all articles which are not within the categorie you want to see.
While this may not be the most elegant way it should be pretty straight forward.

In my case, usually I read the news from old to new. So usually I open the folder "all articles".

Thanks for your time.
