This app is written in Kotlin using modern native Android, putting special attention to clarity and resuability of the code. At the same time, it integrates Google Firebase for services like authentication, push notifications, and database. This means that the code provided also implementes the backend for the app.
Following the comprehensible instructions, you can have your app up and running in minutes. Just decide the source of the news articles, that is, the RSS feed that the app backend will fetch. For example, point to CNN for general news or to your local newspaper if you like. Extremelly easy configuration.
The backend thas been designed to allow maximum scalability and flexibility at the lowest consumption (the free tier of Firebase will support thousands of users).
Users can log in to enter the app (Google login working out of the box but many other available) or they can get in the app and log in at a later time.
