  1. I like what you are making here! But I do not want to read the Spain news just because I talk Spanish. If you could add more feeds according to countries and not to languages it could be nice!

    You are so right! I know that you are not necessarily interested in El País when you are eg from Latin America. We’ll try to fix this asap. In the meantime you can of course manually add feeds from all your favorite sites. Thanks.

  3. I hope you can make pages readable without signing in because I have lots of stuffs to share ... Is it possible to provide a link like http://whatever ... and it works like a webpage (just like Google Reader) ?

    Hi there. Thanks for the suggestion. We are working on a feature that will allow users to share their whole news stream with other users. Also, you’d be able to make your news stream public, i.e. to be found and followed by others. However, we probably won’t be able to make anyone’s Good Noows persoanl news stream truly public, i.e. accesible to non-GN-users. This is due to copyright issues in some territories and conflicts with other features we’re planning.

  6. Hey, first off, cool app. Could you add an option where the users have a choice to grab the whole feed or visit the main webpage of the news website/source. I would like the whole news to be pulled into the app when I click the headline or something. Cheers!

  8. Hi,

    It's a nice service especially you will add google reader to it BUT it need to support other languages in Mac OS such as ARABIC.

    kindly support the Arabic language in Mac OS to benefit those who speak it this language.

    Thanks ..

  9. It could be useful to have a clock on the top bar to see the time when you're in full screen mode browsing through the news.

  10. I would like to start the app on 1 page with the latest news from multiple categories (maybe 6 or 9 blocks and the ability to scroll down).

  11. I don't see the point of an RSS feed it if doesn't let you see the entire content of a post, including text, photos, and videos like Google Reader. It would make the site much more functional and a competitive replacement for Reader.

  12. I would like to be able to replace my OPML collection without having to delete each category.

    Or said otherwise: I would like to be able to remove all categories by one simple click.

  14. When you click on a feed it should keep track of the feed or key words in the feed so when new items related to it comes out they will be shown first

    Thanks. We are planning to recommend articles to you that might interest you and also to give you the option of sorting your news stream accordingly – based on what you have read in the past and based on other factors. But we’re not there yet. Please bear with us. Cheers.

  15. Add an option dialog (or some other method of input) for font and font size selection. This option is mostly just for accessibility as it can irritable to strain your eyes all day.

  16. One feature I enjoy about Google Reader is the ability to search past feed items from a long time ago, such that they might not still be in the actual rss feed. This makes it easy to share an article with a friend if it comes up in conversation a month later, or if I remember seeing a past article but can't remember where I saw it.

  19. It would be a real boost in UI to have an unread items counter near each category name (even the custom ones) + a small color/highlight customization panel to set the border of the unread items after each user preferences (or something similar on this idea).
