  1. Mark as all as read by date option

    In Google reader, until it's unfortunate demise, you can "mark all as read" but choose "items older than x." When sometimes you come online after days away from your feeds (vacation, a great weekend, long work binges, etc.) that is an incredibly useful feature.

  3. Show subscriber count and posts per week

    One nice feature of Google Reader is you can tell how popular a feed is (or whether you've clicked the wrong one by accident) based on subscriber count. Also, if you show posts per week, I know I won't subscribe to one that inundates me with articles. Thanks.

  5. Package your app as a Firefox OS app

    And releases it in the Firefox OS marketplace - currently it lacks a good feed reader and since you are already web based it should be pretty easy to get an app of the ground using some responsive designing and then you can iterate on it from there.

  9. Add "Mark Previous as Read" feature

    This is a feature in Google's Android app, but NOT their web interface (????). But it is OH SO helpful.

    Say you have 900 unread items, but only time to scan over 300 and read 15. With this, you can scroll through the listing, check out interesting titles, skip the rest, then hit "mark previous as read" when you have to leave. Next time you come back, you start right where you left off.

    It is, in my own opinion, a much more "powerful" feature than "Mark All as Read."

  11. Move the comment button

    Right now, the comment button is too close to "unshare", and it's possible to misclick on unshare by mistake.
    If you could put "comment" somewhere else, maybe on the same level, to the right of unshare, it would be nice.

  12. Bing alerts

    More of an issue I haven't been able to find a solution for. It seems that when I try to grab an RSS feed from Bing News "Subscribe by RSS" and add that one subscription to The Old Reader "Add a Subscription", The Old Reader won't accept the subscription - I can't add to my subscription list at all. I'm not sure if this is a problem other folks have run into, but would love any insight/solutions.

  13. The sort order date for a single feed or single group

    For example, the feed from the forum I want to read from the old to the new record, something to keep the discussion within the band.
    But newsfeed about space I want to read the newest entries first, and move on to the older.
    Now sort mode is set for all subscriptions and not only one.

  14. keyboard shortcuts after share

    After sharing a post, I press 'n' my usual shortcut to move to the next post, but it starts typing n in the shared comment box. The keyboard shortcut should have priority. Those that want to comment, should click on the comment box.

  15. Allow iframes in feed items

    Slashdot feed has iframes for top 5 comments, which allows to read/moderate them without opening the main site.

    Google reader displays this iframe; Old Reader does not.

  16. Ability to turn off any social features!

    I just want to read my news in a quick way with a simple interface, no social anything which disturbs the clean interface. no recommendations, trends, ...

    So if i could turn all these features off under settings, that would be great.

    Ability to email an article to someone else is enough.

  18. Create a way to manage folders.

    When I am on a feed, and I want to remove it from a folder, there isn't a way to do this. Or, if I want to create 5 new folders, there isn't a way to just create them. The dragging and dropping method isn't working for me, the way the how to says it should. Have a manage folders page, where we can manage all the items and folders, like the favorites page of our browsers.
