And I don't think two taps to "Set unread," or looking at a separate "starred" feed, is some sort of Herculean effort.
One of the things I like best about TT-RSS is that fox does take useful suggestions and implement them, but doesn't take every single suggestion that people blurt out. Sometimes using new software means learning a new workflow. If TT-RSS doesn't work for you, there are plenty of other options.
It's by no means herculean, but that's not the point. A combined feed would be a (minor) improvement (for some). If someone doesn't want it, they don't have to use it. I'm sure most people don't publish, but it's still there as a button in the app and as a virtual feed in the list.
If a new virtual feed is off the table, can we try something else? Since "Starred articles" is supposed to be a good way to handle "read this later", how about the following:
1) Instead of an unread count for starred items, can it show the total item count (on the web and in the app)? It would be a nice visual reminder that there are articles that I've saved for later.
2) Can "Starred articles" be brought near the top of the feed list in the app (pref. right under "Fresh articles", like on the web)?
Either way, it's all minor, and I'm not going to raise hell about it. I admire that fox has a vision, has stuck to that vision, and has executed. It's also nice that he's provided his source under GPL. tt-rss is a fine piece of software, and I have no major complaints.
