What's New in Version 2.0.2
This a spit-and-polish release, designed to deliver your articles faster, smooth-ah and safer.
- Whereas once, synchronising with your reading list exhibited some slight dilatory indications and a tendency to cessation (crash), the future holds nothing but breakneck synergy and robustity.
- It used to be that Readtime crashed when the article you were reading was archived outside of Readtime. Not any more, babycakes.
- In days of old, there was a distinct possibility of a crash when attempting to downloading articles that haven't yet been sent to the bookmark service. Now it's ixnay on the crash-ay hombre.
- Once upon a time, error messages would flit by like a Lark in pursuit of a grasshopper. Now they're like a Lark who has just eaten a grasshopper and is thinking about an afternoon nap.
- On occasion, your bookmarking service rejects links added via the Share panel. We're totally handling that now.
- Apparently, we used to proffer a Share panel for silly things like anchor links. If indeed that was the case (which personally I doubt), it certainly ain't the case now, sweetcheeks.
- And best for last *cough* miscellaneous bug fixes.
Great way to go through my Pocket links:
It seems counterintuitive to have an app to organize the app where I send links to read later, but it really adds value! It syncs very nicely with Pocket, and makes it easy to take 5 minutes (or however many minutes you'd like) to read some articles.
I love that it pulls the links randomly, which is something I had requested for the Pocket app since it I started using it many years ago as Read it Later. That adds nice variety, just like shuffling iPod music.
My only request would be to add an option for a dark/night background. The white screen is too bright & brings on my migraines, so I triple-click the home button to make the background black, but then the photos are all inverted too, which is not so pleasant. Otherwise, I am very happy with this purchase
P.s. I had an issue after a recent update (in June '13), but the excellent, fast, informative response to my problem was much appreciated (& impressive) and it works great now!
Sometimes it pick an article you want to left unread, and there's no such option.
Also, an universal app would be perfect for long reads in iPad.
Keeps crashing. Nice otherwise, but useless because it crashes so often.
