  1. Chinese interface

    Would you please provide a Chineses interface? You know many chinese people use GR because it can show feeds outside the Great Fire Wall, and now when we turn to The Old Reader, because you're one of the few RSS readers that can do the same thing, we hope have a familiar interface. Thank you very much!

  2. Make it possible to share posts on Biz pages on Facebook. I really, really need this feature...

    I use a reader to curate posts of interest to my writer community. I must be able to share directly from the reader to my Facebook BIZ page.

  4. Please disable hover on list item - it's kind of distracting

    To scroll through list items you have to have cursor be over them, and there is always hover, which jumping from one to another item. It kind of distracting :(

  5. Preview text to the right of collapsed items

    It would be nice to see a short preview of an item's body to the right of the title when running in collapsed mode.

    The feed for http://alistapart.com/site/rss doesn't get a title automatically. I'd like to add one myself.

    This has now been released. If you go to your settings, you can choose to protect your shared items. If selected, you must approve all new follow requests, and your shared items will not be available to anyone except your followers.

    If you “like” a post, your name may still appear on the post for all users.

    Additionally, any existing followers can be removed by going to your followers page.

  14. Add a link to a list of all dead feeds

    The list of dead feeds on the home page is super handy! I'd love to see a list of all my dead feeds.

  15. default autoplay=false on video/audio clips

    A few feeds have had embedded videos that autoplay when I click on the feed, which can be annoying, especially if the video is many posts down the line, and difficult to find and pause.

    I'm so glad you guys made this, btw. Reader was the greatest thing on the internet while it lasted.

  18. Extend keyboard shortcuts

    I'd love to be able to exclusively use keyboard shortcuts rather than ever touch the mouse. To that end:

    • add a '?' shortcut that gives an overlay describing available shortcuts
    • add a shortcut to mark a post unread

    Most of requested shortcuts have been implemented, check out the announcement at http://blog.theoldreader.com/

    If you think that more keyboard shortcuts should be added, please create separate feature requests for each additional shortcut. This will allow others to vote and will help us prioritize.

    UPD: We also have fixed shortcuts for international layouts and added ‘x’ key to toggle posts in list view.

  19. iOS

    I really need an iOS app or at least a better working mobile website. Until then it's hard to leave google reader for the old reader :(
