User story

As a user who is mindful of bandwidth usage, I want to be able to set what is downloaded under different conditions.

Proposed solution

Provide controls to manage bandwidth usage under Settings, namely:

  • An option to only download on WiFi (for both Reading list items and Offline compilations files)
  • An option to download without images (for reading lists only)
  • An option to turn off default automatic download of articles for offline

This is a huge task that'll most likely appear in version 2.
