It might be a good idea to add a thumbnail next to (or overlayed to) each post, similarly to what Pulse does. It could be automatically generated from the first image of the post, and could be e.g. cropped to square.

This would give this screen a much more visual look, as otherwise it might be a bit too much text.

I am considering the idea, but first i have to think about the behavior of such thumbnails: what do we show to the user when the feed has no pictures or, even worse, pictures that occur randomly?

You could show an automatically generated color pattern based on the hash of the text contents if no image is included in the feed. That way the user at least gets a uniquely identifiable blob to aid in navigation.

Alteneate version with image thumbnail next to article titles

I'm not very knowledgeable about how RSS works under the hood, but is it at all possible for the reader to grab the favicon of the feeds website?
That way you could instantly identify the website of origin.
Though I'm assuming that this can't be the case due to the nature of feeds? I'll just put this forward just in case.

@Sharp, of course, most (if not all) RSS readers actually do this, so don't worry :)
