  1. Make shift+j and shift+k also do what shift+n and shift+p do

    This is how Google reader behaves and it is slightly easier as I often use j and k for navigation and won't have to move the placement of my fingers.

  3. Sort by getting date and tome

    Sometimes new posts are below the posts I have marked as unread (I have the reader set up to show unread posts only, newest on top).

    It seems, that the items are sorted by the date and time the item was created and when the feed is read and contains posts older than the items I have already seen, then these older posts go below the posts I have seen.

    Then, to read newly found posts I have to scroll down and again mark the posts I have seen before as unread.

    Would it be possible to add an option…

  4. Make a users Shared Items an RSS feed that can be accessed by other services.

    This would make it so that my shared items can be accessed by someone using a different feed reader (feedly, or HiveReader, etc...)

  5. support RTL (Hebrew/Arabic)

    Reading Hebrew feeds is painful: The text is left-aligned, and bidi is all wrong, which means if there are any numbers/Latin in a line, the text flow is completely broken.

  8. Selectively mark posts as (un-)read

    Could you implement a function to mark posts "older than ..." as read?
    Would be also nice to set specific feeds as read.

    Thanks :)

  9. Don't mark everything above the clicked-on post as read.

    I read a lot of webcomics/time ordered content in and it is incredibly annoying that clicking on a post automatically marks everything above it (i.e. everything I'm about to read) as read. It means that I have no idea where I'm up to through a browser restart.

    Please Please, never mark something as read if i've never actually opened and/or read it.

    (Tested in Chrome/FF)

  11. Include audio enclosures when sharing podcast feed items

    When sharing podcast feed items, enclosures are not showing up in the share feed. I used this feature a lot in Google Reader to create my own "mix tape" of podcast items.

  13. Position in import queue not visible any more

    I used to see my position in the import queue. It was once around 30.000. In time it went down to around 12.000. But now, when I click the import link the only thing I see is the following text:

    We find feed import to be quite resource intensive procedure, so our system only allows a limited number of import operations to run at the same time. Currently all available slots are busy, so your import operation will be queued.

    Doesn't indicate any progress and it doesn't look good this way. Please bring back printing the queue position.

  14. Unread feeds button?

    Dear Old Reader,

    My feeds are not appearing chronologically and I need to individually click items to read them.

    It would be amazing to have a way to click a button to just read the unread ones. (Clicking "Home" or "All Items" has not worked for me).

    Apart from this, I would like to commend you on a very nice program!

  15. API for subscribing to feed

    I know there's a suggestion for an API, but that's just a huge vague task.

    I'm just suggesting something for adding feed urls via a get request....

    http://theoldreader.com/add_feed?s=http://blog.skepticallibertarian.com/feed/

    or some such ( yes, that just happened to be the feed I was adding now ).

    I was trying to add a new feed via Google's reader extension, and since it was possible to manually decide services to parse the RSS feed, I wanted to specify your service.

  18. Sending to evernote posts that I like

    At this moment I do a think that is really great. I have a trigger on ifttt that send to Evernote each post that I like on GReader, that means that I my evernote account I have a folder that has inside all the posts that I liked, organized by the feed title. It's easy to do, maybe just adding RSS to the "Love" section, or integrating itself in The old reader (maybe better).

  19. add a keyboard shortcut for closing the current item

    I like the new keyboard shortcuts (as of 1 May) but you appear to be missing one for closing or collapsing the item that is currently being read. In Google Reader it's 'o'. Since you use that for opening the post in a new tab, you might use 'x' which would match up nicely with Shift+x (collapse selected folder).

  20. include user's notes in rss stream of shared items

    self-explanatory, i think. (this would allow users, for example, to build a microblog/annotated link-dump directly from the old reader.)

    there is a similar, but more complex request here:
    http://theoldreader.uservoice.com/forums/187017-feature-requests/suggestions/3746947-let-the-profile-rss-feed-show-initial-shared-comme
