3.0 out of 5 stars Ok but could be better 18 Oct 2013

Ok as an RSS ticker - though seems restricted to just a handful of feeds. Also (unless I have not configured correctly) it needs a screen to itself - displaying just a clock and ticker tape ribbon. Would have been better to run alongside other applications; as if I wanted to sit watching the news tick by on its own - I'd have visited the BBC website!

4.0 out of 5 stars How to add feeds step by step 3 July 2014
By NR - Published on

Adding feeds is easy. All it takes is a little patience and a few clicks. Apparently some users expect instant in your face gratification. Here is my STEP BY STEP ABOUT HOW TO ADD FEEDS:

1. Get the app on the Kindle you plan to use. (Mine is fire HD)
2. Run the app with it`s limited feed list. Don`t delete any yet.
3. go do a google search with this: rss feed list news.
4. Find a feed list and select one of the little icons in front of it.
5. A window will appear asking you what reader you want to add it to. Select the symbol for the RSS Ticker App.
Repeat, Repeat, etc
6. Now you can work with the apps settings and delete etc. what you need. The feeds will scroll across your screen.

(This is basically what the author means by using "share" to add feeds. ). This has limitations but is as good as any IF YOU WANT OR NEED A SCROLLING FEED ACROSS THE SCREEN system of reading feeds.

Obviously 2 or 3 scrolling bars would be better. Also, if the scroll appeared at the bottom of a displayed page. Cheers. NR

Limited customization: the ability to add your own RSS feed is hampered by not being able to do this within the app itself. The developer offers a "tip" to open your Android Web Browser and add the feed. What "Android Web Browser" is he referring to? You cannot change the font of the digital clock readout which looks clunky as is....You cannot change the direction of the RSS feed. I read from left to right so I find it disconcerting to see the feed come from the right hand side of the screen. Maybe the developer will upgrade app to add a bit more usefulness....

Good begining to what I was looking for. Would like to see the ability to add your own feeds, maybe the option of having two tickers at the same time? Delete the ones you dont want (trash can don't seem to work on my kindle. Also allowing to choose a personal background would be nice. Overall good price for a good desktop clock idea.
