And then Palabre marked over 500 RSS items as read and my reading backlog for the week was gone. Can't recommend that app at all.
Unfortunately I've ended up back at Press for reading RSS on my Google Pixel. Even though it's not maintained anymore, it's still better than almost anything else out there. I've noticed a bug where it consistently leaves the first article unread though, which is annoying.
I've had a bug in Press where it would not update the article list view. So I would tap on a category and instead of showing me the X unread posts I expect, it will show me whatever list view full of already read articles it decided to get stuck on Only way to get around that is a restart of the app and a resync. That's why I started looking for an alternative.
