Yes, I like that as well, stuff to be left unread while scrolling. But I would like to have the option to mass-select items (all above or all below) as read. So nothing is done automatically, a button somewhere on the current post (or a menu if you keep tapping a specific post?) does what I have described.

Hi,

i really like your app, its quality is on par with the official Android client.

I just have one small issue with the navigational consistency within the app:
Back = left
1.png
Feed overview
1.png (24.63 KiB) Viewed 5446 times

Back = left
2.png
Article overview
2.png (10.89 KiB) Viewed 5446 times

Back = right (?)
3.png
Article view
3.png (48.82 KiB) Viewed 5446 times

So when browsing categories and articles, with the back button always on the left side, and finally reading an article, most of the time when wanting to go back i hit the "source" button instead, since it is placed, where usually the back option sits.

It would be really great if these two buttons could be exchanged, maybe not generally but as an option.

Other than that, great work and thanks :)

Greetings

In fact, the article view is not "pushed" like the Subscriptions -> Feeds -> Articles sequence. The article detail view is a "modal view". If you look at the iPad version, you'll see that it's a different window. So the action is not Back, but Close. This action on the right because, on iPad, it's near the "Mark All Read" action. So when you read some articles, you just close the detail view and mark read all remaining article on the same side of the screen. But OK, I'll add an option to switch Source/Close buttons ;)

Personally I'd like to be able to choose with my finger every time, not by a global option. Tapping on the number of unread articles vs tapping on the category name may not be immediately intuitive, but I think of it like this: I tap the number 7 to see all those 7 unread articles. I tap the category name to see what's in the category.

Hi everybody,

I've not enough time to work on my app, so I release a new version with just a bug fix and a new option to swap Close / Source buttons.

I'll add new options later, such as swipe article list to mark/publish an article or shortcut to show directly unread articles as suggested. Version 1.2.1 is still for iOS 6.1 min, but I think that future release will be iOS 7 min.
