Multi services feed reader, specially designed to work offline. Currently, supports Netvibes, Old Reader and Tiny Tiny RSS as feed aggregators.

Kaktus works in sync mode, so network connectivity is not required all the time. The key feature is possibility to read articles in offline mode, so without a network usage. In such mode, previously downloaded content of web pages are displayed from local cache.

To run the application, you must already have a Netvibes, Old Reader ot TT RSS account - new sign up from app is not possible.

Any comments, issue reports are highly appreciated.

In the latest version (=2.3-1) I added new "Click on article action" option. One of the value could be "Show feed content". Your feedback is welcome.

Perfect, love it. I'll check my subsribed feeds if there are any issues displaying them but for now, all looks good! 

Is there a way to change the color of the links? The deep blue is kinda hard to read (at least with my ambience)

Sure. Fixed in the latest version.

Thanks for the idea. It is quite easy to implement and I like it, but maybe not as a default. I will introduce new settings option enabling behavior you described.

The reason I'm cautious is that content of RSS can be very unpredictable and simple UI components could  have problems with proper rendering.  Will do some tests.

Please add the style offline viewer - transparent (as in the main window).

Hi,

 

I will not post something about features as there are already 2 points describing my needs :

Option "Mark all like unread"

Option "Show all feeds in one list" or similar, I prefer this option to selecting which feed to read.

Could it be possible to see the number of unread news in the app cover on the home screen?

 

Thanks a lot for the app.

Hi MAth,

Your two requests: "Mark all as read" and "number of unread in cover" are in latest (1.0.3) release. Have fun :-)
