  2. Create a "current post" indicator

    Google Reader uses a [blue] highlight on the left border of a post to indicate which one is the current, that will receive all the actions from keyboard shortcuts (un/like, un/share, mark as un/read, ...)

    Currently, The Ol' Reader uses instead a [green] highlight on the left border to indicate if the post is marked as un/read and, as far as I can tell, considers the top-most (partially or completely) visible post as the current one. This happens even if the user is using "list" mode and any other post, that is not the first, is the one actually expanded…

  4. eliminate redundancies between shares and reshares

    I feel like I read the same shared article every time it's re-shared, which fills my following folder with unwanted redundancy. I only want to read something once, unless it has received new comments. Can an item have an original sharer and a list of resharers (without violating people's privacy concerns, obvs)

  7. Limited text width to improve readability

    Google Reader uses a max width for entry text, presumably to improve readability. This makes it easier to read posts, as the eye does not need to move across as much of the screen to get to the next line. Essentially it makes the text width similar to a novel.

    .entry .entry-body, .entry .entry-title {
    max-width: 650px;
    }

    “Refresh all feeds” button can only work in a reasonable amount of time for users that have a very small number of feeds (10-15 at most). An additional requirement will be for RSS feeds that are refreshed to serve their XML files very quickly.

    Please keep in mind that voting for this feature, you automatically vote for imposing a very low limit of feed count per user.

  19. Unload posts that have been scrolled out

    It looks like google reader unloads posts that the user have scrolled out. This helps to maintain low memory usage and stops any running audio/video embeds. We should try to do this as well.

  20. Pocket: tagging

    After sending the post to Pocket we should present user a separate form that will allow him/her to enter pocket tags. We could also store a cached list of tags and show input suggestions, however this will be quite cumbersome, because the only way to get the list of all tags is to fetch all user items.
