  1. Provide ongoing search within subscription feeds

    I have 10-15 items in Craigslist that I continually am on alert for potential purchase/trade. Microsoft Outlook offers a static search feature w/ RSS feeds, where reader does the searching automatically daily/hourly once the search criterion defined. This would be a huge selling point for monthly subscription plans, IE: 1-20 @ $3/mo plan, etc. Thanks for the consideration!

  2. allow certain feeds to be imported as already read

    I determine which posts to read by their read/unread status but I have a number of feeds which I don't need to read very often - I tend to let them accumulate and then browse through picking out the interesting stories. This means that my 'unread' total grows when, in fact, I have read everything that is currently interesting.

    If I could set these feeds to import as already read, I would still know that they were there and go and check them periodically and my 'unread posts' would actually be the ones that I am interested in checking as…

  3. make it possible to link to original sharer when sharing other's people posts

    Very frequently, I see people sharing items and posting in their comments something like "via Joe Smith". It would be nice (although maybe not easy) to have a way of automatically link to Joe Smith profile instead.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  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. 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.

  12. 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

  14. integrate RSVP - rapid serial visual presentation - into your product

    A number of apps using RSVP to increase reading speed for screens are available, integrating one or more with the old reader would improve its functionality

  20. Add AI-powered ranking of articles

    Do you subscribe to too many feeds or too fast ones? Both? Me too. That's why I wrote a machine learning-based ranking service (https://github.com/piccolbo/rightload). But it needs to be integrated with a reader. It would also be more powerful the more people use it.
