- When scrolled to the end of the article list, pulling up now presents the “Mark all as Read” panel
- Improved display of author information in the article viewer

- Fixed: Possible crash when swiping left in the article viewer to open the browser
- Fixed: In-app browser layout issues
Have you ever used another newsreader? If so, you know how much faster it is to comb through 2000 new posts when you have thumbnails to look at. The sole newsreader without even the option to turn on thumbnails? Reeder. As beautiful as it is, staring at a list of text and favicons doesn't allow me to skip posts quickly based on their hero image, and that's crucial. The author of this otherwise fine app seems to have a philosophical grudge against such imagery, so I'm forced to use a less pretty, but much more usable RSS reader. Posting this here is like shouting into the wind, but I always hope the author will see the light.
There is a very critical flaw, it's way too easy to accidentally mark everything as read and no way to undo that! While reading at night I accidentally long pressed and BAM hundreds of articles I saved were marked read and gone. No way to revert. All my saved articles lost. Very very upset about this. Who even uses this gesture anyways, who batch reads everything above/below an article? I've never once wanted to do that. This should be removed.
UPDATE: Just happened again. Absolutely infuriating!!! 😡😡😡😡😡
Additionally it is just sad it doesn't have any VoiceOver support whatsoever. I shouldn't need perfect vision in order to catch up on the news.
Waste of money with a catastrophic bug
It was useful until I added several ATOM feeds at once. From that time, when I open the app, it freezes while refreshing the feeds. There is no way to clear the caches through the iOS settings. The in-app settings are also frozen out. The help on the developers website mentions freezing in another context: "There's currently an issue if you have (way) too many unread items (thousands should be fine). Unfortunately, it's not something that can be fixed in Reeder at this point." Again, a waste of money with a catastrophic bug.
