Changes to read status in 2.5.0


Today I’d like to demonstrate a change to the read status in 2.5.0. This is probably best shown in video. In short though, from 2.5.0, read items will not immediately disappear from the view. Instead they will remain until you either Swipe them away Toggle show read / unread Navigate to a different feed Restart the app This has a couple of benefits. You accidentally close an article and decide you want to read more or star it.…

Upcoming style changes in 2.5.0


End of summer vacation is looming which means it’s getting time to release everything I’ve been working on during the summer. Because of several user-facing changes this version will be 2.5.0. To highlight said changes I thought I’d actually write about them for once. First up is the most obvious change of all: article styles. First a couple of common points: *The New indicator is GONE. Yes I did read all the hate mail.…

New filter menu


Got some feedback over the years that indicated that people were having a hard time understanding what the eye-icon in the toolbar was for (toggling between showing read articles or not). Combined with a need to let people view their saved articles in specific feeds/tags I decided to address both with a new button and menu. The menu uses the fairly standard filter icon (it also has a tooltip on long-press) and shows options in plain language.…

Giving OPML import/export some attention


A user emailed me and asked if I could fix the filename of the OPML export from .xml to .opml. This was a quick fix but it lead me down a rabbit hole. See screenshots. OPML import is something many users never do (I think) and the ones that do typically only do it once or twice. Still the app should support opening the files directly in my opinion. Currently you must select “Import from OPML” in the main menu.…
