  1. Offline Sync

    I was using Greader pro for google reader and I was able to download the latest news and read while I was offline. The next time I connects to the net it syncs for rea/unread/liked/starred items...

  2. A "trash can" for unsubscribed feeds and folders

    I've apparently deleted (or unsubscribed) inadvertently from a whole folder - EEEK! I'd love to have a way to roll back!

  3. very small mobile web enhancements

    I love the fact that The Old Reader has a mobile web interface. For me this is THE reason to switch to The Old Reader. With a few minor tweaks it could be great !

    1) add the button to mark all as read at the bottom under the feeds. Afterall you browse all the way down while reading them and now you have to scroll back up to press "mark as read".
    2) Would be great if on mobile you could also still work with the categories and they would be collapsed by default. This way you don't have…

  6. Mobile Site Static Menu or 'Back to Top'

    I've been using The Old Reader for a good two weeks now and truly appreciate the service. Great minimalist UI and nice mobile adaptation. When I load a feed that is large or has a lot of unread items, scrolling can be difficult. Maybe either a small static menu button or a scroll to top button would be helpful?

  8. Fixed sidebar width

    The sidebar, with the list of subscriptions, should remain at a fixed width (as in google reader), and not change width when the browser changes width.

    If you have your browser windows wide, the sidebar gets too wide, and it's just wasted space, that could be used for the posts instead.

  9. Google reader + IFTTT

    This was a big deal for a lot of users. I want to automate an action off the back of a The Old Reader RSS update (or even tag update). Will this ever be possible or will I need another alternative to Google reader?

  11. Great reader! One suggestion

    Great reader! One suggestion I'd like to make is to provide a link in the listing that allows you to go directly to the source article without having to open the summary? Most times I can simply read the headline and would like to go directly to the source without having to open the summary and then click on the provided link to go there.

    I wish a widget to include several RSS Streams into my website pages. The widget should be customizable (width, color, date of the feed, URL-source or original source name)

  14. Opt to limit number of saved items below standard 1,000.

    An option to change the number of maximum saved items to specific or pre-determined values such as 200, 500, 750. Saves you space and gives the user the option to cut down on out-dated news. Personally I have no need or desire to read through 1,000 old articles and only really care for the more recent data.

  15. Show folders names in bold if there are any unread items

    Same behaviour like the Google Reader.
    If there are any unread items in that folder display the name in a bold typeface to stand out more.

  16. Share news items with only specific people (or only 1)

    The one feature I miss from Reader than Old Reader doesn't have was the ability to share news items with a select audience via the use of shared folders converted to RSS feeds.

    This was a bit of a hack, but it worked for my purpose: Sharing items only with my wife. Sure, someone could have found the feed and subscribed, but why would they care? It didn't consist of private news items, but it did consist of things my wife and I would talk about, and I didn't really want to share what I was reading/thinking about with everyone.…

  17. Automatically pull URL from clipboard when adding a feed

    I would find it convenient if, after clicking to add a feed, the contents of my clipboard (most likely a URL) would automatically get pasted into the field.

  19. Allow all/more likes on a post to be visible

    If I recall correctly, Google Reader used to have the "and ## others liked this" string as a clickable object to list out all of the people who liked a post. If that's not feasible (due to the possibility of loading 1000 names), maybe allow one click to load up to some acceptable number of names, and subtract that number from the "undisplayed likes" count.

    Mainly, I just want to be able to see the people who liked a post that are either following me or that I'm following.

  20. Following users - comments highlight

    One of the most missed functionalities from the (old old) greader, was the ability to have "conversation threads" within the shared items, this really made people fall in love with the platform.

    The Old Reader (new new... like ramona i guess), have this almost nailed down, sharing and commenting in content is a breeze, however there's no highlight of the commented items and therefore the "conversation" within the topic may be lost. It would be good that the Following section highlighted the items that have received comments.

    Thanks
