    Stopped working not too long ago. Needs an update before this is worth anything again. No articles load or show up in the app.

    It's good until a few weeks ago all of sudden stopped working. All I get is "no item". Please fix it. Thx.

    Verge removed API, not much he can do. Converge has the same issue.
