  1. Bigger "Mark as read" button

    It looks like the button is pressed more often then others so sometimes at fast checking what's new I miss the button and press another one :)
    It would be nice to have a little bit bigger button.

  2. Add ability to send article link to account email address at "Read article later"

    Could you add ability to send link of article to email assigned to account please?
    I suppose the menu item could be added to "Read article later".

    Reason: It would be very easy way to remember the article for later reading or for personal "library" orginized on base of some email client for those who don't use/need any of listed under "Read article later" services.

  4. share article: copy link option

    I wish i could just copy the link to share the article. it's very useful when I'm in 1-1 conversation online, rather than 1-many options currently available.

  5. Enable us to adjust the size of the reading screen

    I wish I could change the size of the article (after I click into it from the home screen)

  6. String parsing is imperfect

    Sometimes the article starts off with credit/source of an image, but there is no 'space' between credit and article. For an example, one of my articles started off with "FlickrOne of the great promises..."

    Minor thing, but I hope this gets resolved!

  7. It's the best I know.

    It needs to have a public version. Like dit Bloglines. I'm a librarian, and I would like to give public accés to the library users.

  9. Кнопка "Все обновления" + отображение непрочитанных новостей на вкладке браузера

    1-Кнопка "Все обновления"/"все", которая показывала бы суммированное количество непрочитанных новостей во всех категориях вместе взятых и на каждой категории в отдельности.
    2-Так же было бы плюсом отображение во вкладке браузера количество новых непрочитанных новостей.

  11. 'Flatter look'

    I've been using GoodNoows for some time now. I like the 'newspaper' interface. And the wide range of layouts available. Also the Newstand feature is very nifty. However the interface does looks a little dated now. I first tried goodnoows in 2010 and it still looks more or less the same.

    You could do away with the 'rounded' look and bring in a cleaner minimalitic 'flat' style thats being implement with Metro/Modern Ui and Google Holo/Card UI. A new font might not be bad idea either.

    The design changed since 2010 but only small changes. I agree with your opinion and I’m working on a more modern design. But this is blocked by some more deeper changes, involving mobile and more responsive design. I promise to get it done asap.

    UPDATE: I launched a new, flatter design. Got rid of most of the background patterns and images, without loosing the newspaper UX – I think. I’m still working on some deeper optimizations but am already interested in your feedback.

  12. Scrolling problems

    Just a small problem when I'm scanning through headlines, and read an article, when I go back onto the headline viewer i find myself at the top of the list again

    So I have to re-scan through all of the headlines again to find where I was before.

    It'd be handy if the feed stayed in the position I left it when I go on an article

    It appears that Facebook is currently blocking your service from seeing Facebook Pages' RSS feeds.

    It’s quite likely that we are being blocked by them. Twitter does the same. In this case we couldn’t do much about it.

    This can also be related to request limits they give us. Can you provide me with a URL of an RSS feed that doesn’t work?

  14. Mark as read - don't make it "light"

    I would like that colors of articles that are read remain same as those unread, just change color (red?) of that small check mark!

  15. Custom text color

    Give us option to change text color - example: I would prefer that all text is black, not grey, silver etc.

  16. Duplicate Detection improvement

    It seems that a duplicate detection feature was implemented, but I can still see the same headlines featured twice - for example 'Rupert Murdoch files for Divorce' on WSJ Business as well as BBC Business - that too on the same row. Although the body differs a little, it is more or less same in terms of content.

  19. Option to hide feeds that have no unread items from the sidebar

    Analogous to google reader's setting; essential for people with a lot of subscriptions.

  20. Ability to collapse categories

    Clicking the name of a category on the left sidebar should collapse that tab. People with a lot of subscriptions will want to collapse to the original state to navigate without wasting time scrolling.
