I suggest you ...

Implement a secure method of authorizing a user's credentials

As previously suggested (and declined) here: http://newsrob.uservoice.com/forums/35624-general/suggestions/871003-implement-oauth-or-android-accounts-api

"Implement OAuth or Android Accounts API. You should never trust your personal password to a third-party android app. I know NewsRob has great and honest developers, but this is not the right way. This feature (although complex to implement) must get more attention."

        Personally, I'm a Google Trusted tester for Google 2 step verification product.

        It works with google authenticator client on android.

        Now I give generated codes 2 my apps which ask for my password.

        Waiting for OAUTH...

      • AdminMariano Kamp (Admin, newsrob) commented  · 

        Because OAuth is not the right solution.
        When Gingebread is out I will investigate again if I can get the internal auth mechanism to work which allows to select an existing user account instead of authenticating again.
        If I then don't get it to work, I will fall back to OAuth. Maybe February.

        Even gReader has OAuth access to google reader now. Why newsrob still have not?

        I am not the only one with a 30+ character password for his google-account.
        It's more then just an inconvenience to store it in yet another application that fails to use the Authenticator-mechanism provided by Android for this purpose.

        yes. let's do it.

        I am also for this change, it will remove a great aggravation!
