I've made the change, so now if the address doesn't end with a "/", I'll add it.
When you'll update from 1.0.0 to 1.1.0, you'll need to re-enter your server address (only for the first launch).

Hi everybody,

I've almost finished the new version of tiny Reader RSS (1.1.0).
I've added the published option (as simple as clicking on the icon in the article view)

Thank you to jdelamater99 and joergb for beta-testing (and joergb for the German translation)

I've thought of another slightly obscure feature I find handy for one particular feed ( http://xkcd.com/ ). In the Reeder app that I use I can click on an image and you get a menu pop up, one option of which is "show alt text" which pops up the images alt text. The vast majority of feeds are never going to need this option, but the xkcd comic frequently shows the punchline of the joke in the alt text.

+1 for this. Hijinks Ensue (http://hijinksensue.com/) does the same thing. :D

what a great app - far faster then any of the others I've tried for IOS. This is now my default for iPhone and iPad.

how about a way to view oldest posts first in a feed?

Just checked it out, it's looking pretty good now. Just to let you know though it's still doing the double slash thing in the POST to the API. "POST /tt-rss//api/". Also definitely needs favicons in the special feeds to make it nice and easy to quickly identify which posts belong to which feeds.

Are you sure ? This was supposed to be fixed in 1.1.0...

Do you mean on this view ?

Ok, added to my todo list.
