Android App stuck on Loading Stories

  • Updated 7 years ago
Android App on Stock 4.2.2 Nexus 4

Tapping on All Stories gets stuck on the loading stories screen.

However if I previously viewed a single feed, then clicking on All Stories gives me the entries of that previously viewed single feed. So as of now the app is unusable for me (with 995 subscriptions)

Having a really tricky time reproducing this one (even tried it on a stock N4 with an account with >250 feeds, the biggest I have).

Are you on a paricularly shaky network connection? Running a battery saver / task killer? Does feed view and folder view work allright?

My wifi is fine, no battery saver or task killer.

Folder view and single feed view works.

I am thinking that it might be related somehow to the number of subscriptions. Just like Gregor, I have a large number of subscriptions and both the Android app (on a Motorola Droid with 4G) as well as the iPad app just will not work. Checking individual feeds, no problem, but All Stories? Both apps just seem to get stuck.

I only have 57 and I seem to have this problem on an SPH-D710 with JB 4.1.2.

How many feeds? It's possible the URL you're trying to hit is too large.

What are your usernames? I'd love to see if we can repro it.

We'll be launching a fix for this bug tomorrow, as soon as I get the repo cleaned up a bit.

This fixed it. All Stories is loading fine for me now, except that it is painfully slow. It takes 36 seconds until the stories appear when I tap "all stories".

If the most recent update (available, downloaded and installed this morning - version 2.02) was meant to fix the issue, it doesn't appear to have worked for me...

Just to be clear, I'm trying to read all (159) available stories from my focus list. After 2 minutes nothing has loaded.

Did the 2.0.2 update do the trick for anybody else?

Yes, it is working for me now. One suggestion, though: I remember from when the iPad app was still working for me (...), that you could mark as read either all articles or just the number of articles that you had just scrolled by. I figured that the Android app would give me a similar choice, but when it hit the "mark as read" button, it marked all 900+ unread items as read, without any warning. Not the end of the world, but annoying nonetheless. In the interest of consistency, similarly labeled buttons should do the same things across apps and if they don't, it should be made clear that they don't. Ok, temporarily to the Old Reader for those 900+ articles...:-)

This has been talked about elsewhere. A confirmation is planned for Android.

To be even more precise, I'm trying to read all available stories from my focus list *sorted by oldest and unread*.

Still experiencing this when sorting all focus articles by oldest and unread. Can anyone else reproduce this?

I find both that the refreshing/syncing take a long time and then "Loading stories" takes a long time - or just seems to hang. I don't use the focus articles view, but definitely still happening with unread view in 2.0.2.

Is this bug particular to me? Am I the only one for whom the all stories focus list won't load when sorted by oldest and only unread items? Sadness - that's my favorite way to browse.

Nope, confirmed there is an issue with All Stoies in Focus mode. We eliminated another bug with All Stories last week that was masking it, but I'm looking into the new one now.

Excellent. And thrilled to hear I'm not crazy.
