Graze rss crashes whenever I try to view any article on Android M. Anyone around who can help fix this?

I know. I'm looking at it but there's nothing obvious in the code so I need to use the debugger. I left my laptop downloading all the updates for the dev tools and the android image so I can run it in the emulator. I haven't updated my personal device yet, there's nothing interesting enough to make me want to bother with it right now. For me, the last couple major Android versions have been more bad than good. Quite disappointing.

Hopefully the newer SDK still works alright in Eclipse. If I have to move to Android Studio and get things building in there it will take longer.

I know it might be sacrilege on this list, but I tried the Newsblur app recently and it's come on significantly. The offline support isn't quite as good as Newsblur but it might serve as a stopgap.

A temp fix is, go to settings, synchronization, set offline use to DISABLE. Hope that helps. Was bummed when the app would crash also, think something similar happened for lollipop.

Still my favorite RSS app disabling offline use is a good temp fix till things get sorted.

Thanks for posting that disabling offline mode helps. I suspect it has something to do with permission changes on M. I was able to get an emulator running over lunch and reproduce the crash. I'm still not sure what's causing it exactly, but hopefully I'll be able to publish an update soon.

While you're at it can you fix the reflow bug while switching to web view, and overhall the entire UI to use Material Design? ;)

Glad I could help a small amount.

Just saw the update for the app on Google play, updated, re-enabled offline use, everything seems to work fine so far.

That you can have, but you need to steal a shrink ray first...... :)

With a recent m update it is working again without the workaround.
