  2. Search only in unread posts

    Search only in unread posts:
    I want a checkbox "Search only in unread posts" next to the search button.
    I often need a search which only searches in my unread posts.

    Thanks, Jan

  3. Fix feed

    I have 419 active YouTube subscriptions. Why I check YouTube daily for New vids some of the subscribers and videos are not even being shown in the feed. I got this account to show all YouTube vids because YouTube won't. And now I don't even know what's right

  4. Support Microsoft Surface in your App for windows mobile

    The Old Reader web version doesn't display properly in chrome for this platform, the preview window clips the right margin on any story longer than a line.

  6. "Sort by popularity" and/or relevance

    Going through a feed you haven't read for a few days can be painful, as hundreds or even thousands of posts may have piled up in the meantime.

    Today, your options are going through everything or just marking it read and restarting.

    I want a middle way, where you can sort the feed by popularity (# of starred, # of people who've clicked through, I'm sure you have a lot of metrics that can be combined to form 'popularity' ).

    That way, you'll hopefully get more of the best posts you've missed in easy reach, and when you feel you've…

  7. Enable a "View starred only" Filter Option for Each Feed

    The user shall be able to filter a view to a single feed by starred items only.

    [1] A "View starred" button will be displayed to the right of the current "Refresh" and "Mark all as read" buttons while the user is viewing the feed. [see mockup: https://goo.gl/jAtqKY]

    [2] When the user selects the "View starred" button, the displayed items in the feed will only be the items the user has starred. In addition, the text in the "Viewed starred" button will change to read, "Unview starred".

    [3] When the "View starred" filter is active, the individual items displayed…

  9. test the old reader with firefox on android

    The currenrt behavior of buttons and links is extremely sluggish. It somtimes takes more than one second to get visible feedback. I can never be sure whether the "click" worked or not. Too much ajax I guess.
    I am using the most recent firefox. And yes, the mobile firefox is aterrible browser implementation with serious performance issues, but who wants privacy intruders like chrome?

  11. Filter in feeds

    I used Yahoo Pipes (it was removed this week) to filter items within a feed; it would be so much better if The Old Reader could do this directly.

    What it did was it read a Google Sheet which had a column of filter terms; only feed items with those terms would be displayed on the feed the pipe created.

    It would be a lot quicker and more user friendly if The Old Reader could read this sheet (or have its own way to save filter terms) and then filter feeds based on it.

    I really hope this functionality will…

  12. make the internet “a more thoughtful, engaging and self-aware environment.”

    I saw this line on a Zen Pencils comic. It was about Robert Ebert's blog, which I have not read yet. But it struck me as something that I pine for a lot.

    Is there anything in your technical prowess that you could do to bring "thoughtful, engaging and self-aware" content to your readers?

    Popular social networking sites have utterly failed at delivering this in my view. I don't know how it can be done better, but i see hope in the particular kind of people that support TOR ... people that see value in RSS feeds.

  13. Allow us to sort in random order.

    Instead of just "normal" and "reverse," it would be nice to be able to randomize the order in which items are displayed.

  14. Convert any site into a RSS Feed

    Before I make a subscription to the Old Reader, I have one question. Is it possible to use Old Reader to generate RSS feed from any source of website? I'd like to subscribe the Old Reader service forever if it can! Thanks !

  15. Mark post as read in all feeds

    There are some feeds that have the same post, and hence it is cumbersome to have it displayed over and over (for example new publication on arxiv.org). It would be very useful if a post that is marked as read is marked as read in all the feeds where it appears.

  17. Add mechanism to modify feeds

    It would be nice if we could modify the feeds contents after being retrieved. Some feeds like the ones from Youtube contain lots of information, but not in any place that's usable. I would like to be able to apply some XSLT to the entries to create a modified entry with the information I want.

  18. Allow to select all items in a feed as unread (batch unread)

    There should be some way to batch select all items in a feed as unread, perhaps in the /subscriptions page where there are already actions for each feed (i.e. rename/unsubscribe) in a drop-down next to each feed. That seems like a sensible place for it.

    Numerous times I have accidentally marked large feeds as unread, with no sensible way to mark them as unread again.

  19. Please Offer:Pay with Alipay for Premium Account

    I am from China and willing to upgrade to premium account.

    The problem is: I don't have a paypal account and I DO NOT want to create one.

    Instead, why not you guys provide an additional option: Pay with Alipay from Alibaba?

    According to Credit Suisse, the total value of online transactions in China grew from an insignificant size in 2008 to around RMB 4 trillion (US$660 billion) in 2012. Most of them are Alipay account holders.

    OR please read this news on Market Watch on Feb. 2014:

    Sorry PayPal: China’s Alipay is world’s No. 1

    http://blogs.marketwatch.com/thetell/2014/02/10/sorry-paypal-chinas-alipay-is-worlds-no-1/

    Please help ~
