For the next week, I’ll be giving the free trial of Inkl a go. It’s a news aggregator; the idea is they pay news outlets for their articles, and you pay Inkl for the clean ad-free interface and the warm fuzzies of helping to keep journalism limping along.

Inkl is an app, no? There is no feed (with a token) I could subscribe to if I understood this correctly.

And it was almost interesting.

@beko.famkos.net You're correct, it's a closed app with no way to import its feed into an app you prefer. Honestly (although I haven't finished the one-week trial yet), I'm not thrilled with its selections either. It's very Anglo-centric, and despite not giving me that much news to browse a lot of it is very uninteresting, like about boat races or beach closures in places I don't live...

@jayeless Ah, I see. Thanks for testing anyway. Saves others the trouble :)
