    • News are all the same area, must be dinamic to show the news as they are

    • Must be an option, by clic or keyboard to tell reader "this news/feed is already viewed, don't show" and then hide the news and move to next

    • Where can I save my favorite reads?

    Hast du das schon die Labels entdeckt? Einfach einen Suchbegriff ins Suchfeld oben eingeben und dann den Filter Knopf rechts daneben klicken. Dann wir der news stream nach diesem Wort durchsucht. Wird zwar nicht gehighlightet, aber es bleiben ohnehin nur relevante Artikel uebrig. Kommt das der Sache nahe?

    Hi Steven,
    I can’t reproduce this. Sometimes this happens when some news content from a feed in your stream is not properly escaped. Can I ask you a few questions?
    - Do you use Good Noows and does this normally work for you in Chrome?
    - When did it stop working? (I assume it is still not working?)
    - Is this about the web app or the Facebook app?
    Thanks!

  8. I've tried signing up twice with two different emails. In neither case have I received the signup conformation.

    I can’t reproduce this. I just registeres multiple new accounts and got confirmation emails less than a second after clicking “Sign up” Let’s investigate this.

    You are sure that the emails did not end up in a spam/junk mail folder of your email client?

    Are you using Gmail?

    Thanks

  11. I think it could be useful to be able to limit the date of the feeds, so as not to see the month old articles anymore...

  12. I would love put a limit of articles (in the settings) to certain newspapers or magazines, so as not to have plenty of articles from one newspaper when I have only a few from another one...

  14. Google Noows is wonderful app. But I have some problems reading news via this app. I have a small laptop (netbook) and when I read news, it is not easy to close the window, because the "close" botton is under the monitor's screen. That would be great if there was an option lets to change the size of news-screen that appears when you click any news. Or make a button on the top of the screen. Or maybe change the size of the screen.

    Thanks.

    Thanks Sergey. I see your point. We could fix this by automatically adjusting all the CSS dimensions depending on rages of screen sizes. Any chance you could provide me with the maximum screen size (or, even better, the available width and height in a browser window) on your netbook device?

    1 – Yes, I plan to do that. There is a separate idea here in UserVoice somewhere. Please feel free to vote, to push it’s priority.
    2 – Good idea, will look into that.
    3 – We have default sources sets for EN, DE, ES, FR, IT, depending on which language you first register with. I’m working on a PT version. The main problem for me with other languages is that it’s hard to identify and find valid, frequently updated feeds with sufficient content from popular non-English written publications. Please feel free to suggest any!
    4 – Thanks!

  17. It would be nice if he put the Portuguese language as an option, and a mobile version of the site. With the closing of googleReader, Good Noows and the best option, beautiful and well-resourced.

    Hi Carloz, thanks. We are working on a Portuguese version right now. I hope I can release it in the next couple of weeks. Would you be willing to help translate the app. If yes, please request access to this document http://bit.ly/translategoodnoows

    Native mobile apps and an improved mobile web version are also planned. Please feel free to vote on the respective ideas here in the forum.

    Thanks.

  18. I have several feeds I run through Fulltextrssfeed.com in order to read them in my rss reader. When I try to subscribe, it tells me there is not a funtioning feed, though I can view it in the brower. Please allow this source.

    Hi Timepiece, we are not deliberately disallowing any sources. It’s more likely that the feeds generated by fulltextrssfeed.com are invalid. Can provide me with URLs of example feeds that don’t work. Then we can look into it and maybe make our XML parser more tolerant for the malformations in these files. Thanks.

  19. You cannot add Twitter streams to Good Noows anymore, so I searched for another option. I found a solution. You can add a Twitter feed as a RSS feed beginning with https://api.twitter.com/1/statuses/user_timeline.rss?screen_name= and after the = you add the Twitter username. Like this: https://api.twitter.com/1/statuses/user_timeline.rss?screen_name=cnnbrk

    This normally works, and also with Good Noows, but sometimes I just get empty entries.
