  • Doesn't rely on Google infrastructure
  • Secure (forces HTTPS) & decentralized
  • Lots of customization
  • Material design adherent interface
  • Simple, easy to understand settings
  • High-quality code
  • Encrypted & secure connection
  • No tracking
  • No ads
  • Syncs automatically, regardless of whether the app is open

You can expect LibreNews to send you about three notifications per day if you connect to the default server API.
