    I’ve tried Groundhog a couple times. I don’t think the developer has updated it since 2010. Also, there doesn’t seem to be any way to get it to just download headers. It seems to always go for the whole article, which takes forever. Then there doesn’t seem to be any way to sort articles. It also seems to start fetching articles from older ones first. The end result was I could NEVER get to the most recent articles. I have yet to find a decent Android app that allows you to post to text newsgroups on Usenet.

    Groundhog is a feature rich android client, but I prefer the much simpler Nzb Leech

    Doesn’t fetch new articles after initially adding group. I suppose one could uninstall and reinstall, but i’ll continue my search for a working NNTP client for android. This isn’t it…
