GrazeRSS crashes on 9.0 Pie #36

@BenjaminHCCarr BenjaminHCCarr commented Dec 3, 2018

Just upgraded to AOSP based Pie on Essential Phone PH-1

Here are my bugs:

  1. Open in browser crashes GrazeRSS
  2. Share item... crashes GrazeRSS

This doesn't happen in other apps, and it crashes such that the framework doesn't pop up a report dialog.

Related #35

Is there a log that would be useful @travistabbal?

Refining what causes the error:
After clearing caches, and resetting everything to scratch.
I can now reproduce the crash only by:

  1. Open in Browser from the RSS list crashes GrazeRSS
    1a. Open in browser from article works fine
  2. Share item... crashes GrazeRSS regardless of where it is called from

I can confirm similar behavior of GrazeRSS v2.0.10 on OnePlus5 with the latest upgrade to Android 9: OnePlus5Oxygen_23_1812232102


  • article overview: "Show in browser": -> no browser displayed in share dialog; when I share to my email client instead, I get:

  • article overview: "Share link": GrazeRSS crashes
  • article view: context menu: "Show in Browser" crashes app
  • article view: context menu: "Share link" crashes app

This makes GrazeRSS useless to many of my use-cases where I need to share articles to browser or to my notes app.

I can confirm exactly same crashes as described above also on Android 10 on Pixel 3A.

Latest commit 010a300 on Dec 27, 2015

This project seems to be unmaintained, unfortunately.

Meanwhile, I completely switched to the Android app of which provides the same set of features (and more). I had to invest some work on finding out about the different usage patterns but I could find a replacement for all GrazeRSS features. No complaints so far.

I recommend you to switch to a different RSS aggregator client as well.
