Looks promising, except one thing: is there a general 'unread items' folder somewhere?

The first tab shows me my subscriptions, and I can customise it to just show unread, but I have to open each subscription separately to read them. On the 3rd tab, I see the expected 'all items' folder - but it contains all the crap from 'recommended' mixed in with what I actually want to read. Am I missing it somewhere?

The article reading part looks good, better than the other readers I've tried. The layout is great, and I really love how you can scroll 'past' the end of an article and it loads in the next one. The pop-up menu is quite nifty.

One problem here: some feeds don't show the full article, just a few lines, then you tap through to read more. When this happens, the UI is different, which is a little confusing. Also I found a bug here. I opened the drop-down panel showing the sharing options, then went back to the previous screen with the drop-down still open. It stays on-screen permanently - you need to force-close it when navigating away from that view if it's open.

Ah, just noticed something else: the recommended items seem to get shown in the unread count.

Overall: this is a VERY promising start, with a few teething troubles. Once they're sorted I suspect it'll do very well, it's a lot better than the other RSS readers I've tried.

To show unread items, from any items list page, hit the drop-down button then select "show updated".

Oh, you are right:eek: I should separate "recommended items" from "all items". Will fix it in the next update:)

I also found this bug. It's really a shame:(

I mixed them up:mad:

Cool. If they're fixed, this is going to be a very useful app indeed. I've left the free version a review (and sent you an email).
