So I'm looking for a reader app that will download full articles instead of just the headline. Don't see the point of offline viewing if I just get a paragraph of text. I tried NewsRob but no luck there


Byline on iOS had this feature

I think that gReader does. Not got my tablet with me to check but it does say "Offline Reading with full article content" in the details...
Hope that helps

I know you already have a solution, but just to throw this one out there too as it syncs over multiple devices but I use Pocket

Thanks for the recommendation. Been ok with greader so far but two issues...

1) I think Neowin prevents full download articles for offline reading since I get errors when syncing

2) I would prefer that starred items were handled differently. I mean that clearing read articles would not clear starred items as well
