gReader Android app now support tt-rss!

The best Android Google Reader client has added beta support for tt-rss! Here is a link:

BTW, the official tt-rss Android client is very good. The fellow doing gReader only had to build a client. Fox has built the server side, web client and Android client. Essentially Fox has done pretty much all the Google did on Google Reader and built a pretty damn good Android app. AND, despite his sometimes being grumpy he actually supports tt-rss, something Google didn't do much of on Google Reader before they canned it.

Fox, sorry if it pisses you off but note the comment about the limit of 60 results being returned by the API slowing down things. This guys has spent a lot if time on making a great app and he knows the user expectations. If I remember correctly, Google had a 200 items per request limit. maybe you could optionally allow the limit to be bumped to see if it does indeed help speed things up.

As soon as this alleged slowing down is actually demonstrated and proven to be caused by tt-rss and not client application design, I will enlarge the limit. It's very easy to do.

Edit: in fact, if that will shut people up, why not. https://github.com/gothfox/Tiny-Tiny-RS ... cce4b42611

Just wanted to say that I´m super happy that gReader added support for TT-RSS!
Not to insult anybody or to belittle the effort fox invested in his own mobile app, but gReader simply is the best mobile feed reader app I´ve ever seen.
Now TT-RSS + gReader = unbeatable!

@fox: Tagging currently isn´t supported by gReader with TT-RSS - presumably because the TT-RSS API provides no methods for it. Would you consider adding these features (or anything else that comes up) to the API if someone (me) opened a ticket for it? Maybe even accept patches for it?
