Navigation

Flyne is pretty easy to navigate.

A swipe from the left edge reveals a list of available feeds.

A swipe from the right edge, reveals a full list of the posts in that feed.

Navigating from article to article is done through swiping as well. Swiping to the left over an article moves to the next, and vise versa.

A “More Sources” page allows more topics to be added, or custom feeds from Twitter or Feedly.

Functionality
Reading in Flyne is a pleasure to say the least.

The preconfigured feeds are a great start and should satisfy most users. Feedly and Twitter integration offer further control over content.

Flyne marries the different content streams into a single stream for easy content consumption.

By default up to 50MB of content is saved to the device for online reading. This can be adjusted in the settings menu to allow more or less content.
