New filter menu

Posted on Jun 24, 2023

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.

New filter menu

The menu uses the fairly standard filter icon (it also has a tooltip on long-press) and shows options in plain language.

Not final yet, I’m going to be using it myself a bit first to see how I like it. But I think the overall direction is sound. At the moment the two options are not exclusive - you control both individually which people with many saved articles might like but not final as said.

Reach out (send bug-report button in the app) if you have specific opinions about this.
