Please Read Requests from a Power User
Please, please, please set an aging limit. What are we to do with 300,000 posts beside delete them all which we don’t want to do.
1. The ability to set an "aging" limit on posts that changes their status to "read" after a certain number of days. While read posts are removed at a user specified interval, without this critical feature, when posts are not marked read, they just accumulate. We have accumulated well over 100,000 unread posts. While it is possible to delete them all, this would remove CURRENT, unread posts as well. I would like to set posts to be marked read after, for example, 5 days.
2. The second, less critical feature we would like to see added is the ability to have the current highlighted post in the title list, centered vertically, instead of at the bottom. While this may seem a minor issue, when using the keyboard to visually scan hundreds of posts very quickly, it is extremely useful to be able to read ahead (i.e. further down the list) while scrolling. With the current highlighted post at the bottom of the list, new post titles appear, one-at-a-time, from beow the window, making reading the next title below of the currently selected post impossible.
App Is Good, Support is Crap
Update 2: I’m noticing that the subpixel anitaliasing opton for all fonts in this app is turned off. This makes the already thin text very difficult to ready on non-retina screens. It also has the horrible sideeffect of making text very blurry. Subpixel antialasing is a great feature that makes text very readiable. Turning it off is chaning a setting without any good reason. Please turn it back on. I do, however, realize that this comment is like shouting into the wind. The developer does not care about supporting his app and never responds to support requests or feature suggestions.
Updating: There is zero support from the developer. None. You’ll never get a response back whatever the issue might be. Don’t expect any help once you buy it. Changing the review because of that.
The app is great, has almost all of the features of the 1.0 Reeder and supports plenty of syncing backends. The support, however, is terrible. It’s essentially non-existant. If you run into any sort of problem or bug, good luck. The developer doesn’t care and won’t get back to you. He might fix the issue or he might not. Also the updates to the app take a long time to be released.
1991 called, they want their app back.
I can’t fathom why this app has so many 5 star reviews and such a high rating. In all honesty, this app is terrible. It looks pretty, but the functionality is seriously lacking. For starters, at first launch it wants you to add an account. This window isn’t clear on what it’s asking you to do. The default settings hide news feeds that don’t have any unread content, so it’s hard to tell if you’ve successfully added anything. If you create a group, you can not delete the folder or change it’s name. If you delete all the feeds in the folder, it will hide it, but it’s still there. Deleting feeds has to be done one at a time, you absolutely cannot select multiple feeds and delete them. And, finally, if you want to rearrange feeds and move them to different folders, it’s completely awkward they way that’s done. There’s no drag and drop, it’s a series of checkmarks. I got my money back on this one, it’s not worth any price. If the functionality could match the interface, it would be a good app. But, what you’re really dealing with is a modern interface with early 1990s functionality.
