@RHo that's a cool and modern solution. I can give a hand with it when I am back from my holidays :)

Not sure about the implementation details yet, but from the UX perspective it is a splash screen that could maybe be avoided by simply showing the activity with the feed? I understand that you want to wait until the data is retrieved, but please consider how other data intensive apps like Google Keep fix this issue.
I forgot to mention that in case the designers decide to keep the splash screen, a little improvement would be to hide the status bar in that particular activity.
Oh, sorry about it! Thanks!

@Dbrant I am referring to the one shown every time the app is launched. This can be applied only to the MediaWiki flavour. Thoughts?
