Alkonost version 1.0 released

Project Release! Alkonost: Another News Aggregation App

Alright. Alright. What’s the project?

TL;DR link to news app


So recently, I’ve been kinda annoyed with news stuff. As a result, I’ve been working on a news aggregation app in my free time.

It’s called Alkonost. You can use it here

What does it do?

Well right now. Not much.

Currently I have it setup to read some news from a select set of newsfeeds and categories. The categories are as follows

  • Business
  • Tech
  • Entertainment
  • Art and Culture
  • Lifestyle
  • Politics

I hope to implement more customizability in later versions.

Features to Implement

Here is the current list of features that I plan to implement for next release.

  • Add custom rss feeds
  • Add custom categories
  • Delete rss feeds

There is definitely a ton more I wish to implement, but I need to have a goal in my sights :P

Important Bugs

The current version of the app works. However, there are a couple of bugs. The main one is that

You can’t pull up the newsfeeds too quickly

What this means is that by switching between different news categories too quickly it could cause the app to glitch out.


That’s it for this post. If you enjoyed it please be sure to comment, like, share, and all that other fun stuff. Cheers.
