You can tag any article with any tag you like.

Very convenient for organized people :)

Respects your privacy

The app keeps all data on your own computer, and only there. No servers somewhere in the internet involved.

Questions and Answers

Any plans to support synchronization with Feedly?
In near future - no. In distant future - probably not. Two reasons for that:
1. Sputnik wants to be independent software. Adding integration with commercial platform doesn't help with that.
2. Integration with Feedly will force Sputnik to behave like Feedly forever, and will make much harder for Sputnik to go its own way.
I want for this app to be alternative to other readers, not desktop clone of one of them.
