  1. Sort (and sync) by date

    I've just imported from Reader, but I'm having to comb through 2000+ updates from 4 years ago. Limiting the period in which to sync would be helpful.

  2. Log in with Google account and you can't read the GReader stream? This makes me nut.

    I think I did say everything on the title. Once you have people logging in with a third party OTP, it mean you are effectively able to gather relevant info on the entire account.
    What's the point to not read the GReader stream and import automatically saving the hassle for people to export and import their OPML again?

  3. Small changes in design and layout

    Small changes in design and layout

    I realy like Old Reader, closest to GR for me, so I have something to suggest for even better user experience (at least in my opinion)

    original
    http://i.imgur.com/gLqjdU0.png

    explanation:
    1) I think this section is useless, selected feed easily can be seen in subscriptions tree. Plus this dark bubbles kinda distract a little bit.
    2) If we remove (1) we can lift up (2) buttons and it's give us extra vertical space (which is important in 1080p age :)
    3) This icon looks like list items is blended together, don't know if it's bug…

  5. 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.…

  6. streamline folder making

    It's not hard to make folders and get the hang of moving stuff. It's just that it's memory intensive and it takes a lot of time to organize stuff

  8. Date format

    Please could we have a choice of date format. 2013-04-28 08:07:00 UTC means not a lot to me. Smallest to largest would be better, time, day, month, year.

  9. Allow users to buy extra votes.

    I like the old reader and I am willing to put my money where my mouth is when asking for new features. Let me buy extra votes so that it can go some way to funding the new features.

  10. up arrow behaviour

    Strange behaviour of up and down arrow makes mixed arrow/scrollwheel navigation a bit confusing.

    The up arrow seems to not move to the "next unopened item" in the list, but to the "first item in the list that is visible in the current viewable area".

    Let's say I am scrolling a long list of items: some are visible on screen, some titles are up (outside of the viewable list), some are down: if I open a post, its title wil be aligned to the top of viewable area.
    If then I scroll the page a bit up, revealing headlines of…

  12. 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?

  13. Allow share of individual items into specific shared folders

    Pretty please with pizza on top? I am a power GR user, Amd run one of Writers Digest Best 101 Websites for Writers. One of my regular features is that I curate content for other writers. I do this by integrating BufferApp into Google Reader and using it to Tweet selected items. After that, I assign a specific folder to the post. I have the feeds from those folders shared into the blog sidebars, and I use those feeds to generate my weekly round-up of important posts people should read.

    So, several questions, wish list items.

    1) Share individual posts…

  14. FInd out why the pull-down menu is corrupting the Home page?

    I appreciate that as a recent Old Reader convert I am liable to make many mistakes, but I notice that for me, using Google Chrome Beta as my browser under Windows 8-64bit, I am finding the pull down menu overlays and corrupts the text at the top right of the Home screen, and from then on. I am using the native theme.

  15. Bing alerts

    More of an issue I haven't been able to find a solution for. It seems that when I try to grab an RSS feed from Bing News "Subscribe by RSS" and add that one subscription to The Old Reader "Add a Subscription", The Old Reader won't accept the subscription - I can't add to my subscription list at all. I'm not sure if this is a problem other folks have run into, but would love any insight/solutions.

  16. Move the comment button

    Right now, the comment button is too close to "unshare", and it's possible to misclick on unshare by mistake.
    If you could put "comment" somewhere else, maybe on the same level, to the right of unshare, it would be nice.

  17. Provide option to make list view (even) more compact, to help with high-volume feeds.

    Big feeds like Zero Hedge or Hacker News pump out hundreds of posts per day -- RSS readers with an ultracompact list view make scanning these much easier. If The Old Reader had an ultracompact option, that'd be immensely helpful (less scrolling).
