  1. if the former functions work, don't change them!!!

    Lately, goodnoows runs like s"#** everywhere I connect to, and with every browser. The easiest and older functions of goodnoows, now don't work fine. For instance, marking as read all articles at once, or just one of them: i have to push F5, 2 o 3 times to do it. In addition, i just don't understand the improvement of the ever-hidding filter bar, cannot be more annoying

    I’m really sorry to hear that you are experiencing these problems,

    >> if the former functions work, don’t change them!!!

    This is not that simple in software development. Sometimes you have to make architectural changes to be able to keep evolving the product. For me all the recent API changes did not result in any problems but that doesn’t mean there aren’t any. I need your help here. Could you explain your “mark as read” issue in more detail? Especially, why, under which circumstances do you need to press F5 ? I really want to help here but I need to be able to reproduce the problem to fix it. Any details help.

    About the filter/label toolbar: Apologies if you don’t like it. I will keep trying to think of improvements there. Just as an explanation: More than 95 % users do not use it. So I was facing the…

    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?

  4. allow feeds from fulltextrssfeed.com

    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.

  5. Improve the sign up/ Login system. Possible bug?

    Today I've tried to login into the Good Noows Chrome app after a period of absence. First I tried to sign in via the google button (a few times) but was always taken back to the sign in page. Then, I tried to type my email address and password which returned "email address or password is not correct". I also tried various combinations of old passwords but none worked. And last, I tried to reset the password which was successful according to the email but still haven't managed to sign in.

    Could you point me in the right direction and…

    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. ... allow me to reach my account.

    Hello, I'm trying for some days now to reach my account at GoodNoows, and would like to make some changes to the "Kiosk"-thingy.
    The screen blurrs out and that is it, I watched the loading icon long enough now. Is there some overload, some wrecked server ? Did I miss some update ?
    Thank you for yer patience, best regards.

    Thanks for reaching out. I just tested and everything works normal for me. No known server issues.

    A few days ago we had a brief database performance issue which made the site unresponsive for a while. Maybe you experienced that and your browser downloaded a partial file or your cookies are corrupted.

    Did you already try to clear your cache (http://www.wikihow.com/Clear-Your-Browser's-Cache )?

    If that doesn’t work, could you try removing your cookies (http://www.wikihow.com/Clear-Your-Browser's-Cookies )?

    If none of this works I’m happy to look into the issue. But I would need the following information:
    - In which language do you use Good News?
    - Which browser do you use (include version, if possible)?
    - Which operating system?
    - And if you let me know your registered email address I can look up your account in the database, make sure everything is good.

    You can send this information to support…

  9. Reuters Top News feed not working.

    Reuters Top News feed not working for 3 days now. All other feeds seem to work.

  10. let me pay you!

    This is an awesome service and I'd pay to make sure it never went away.

    Of course I want skins and even custom headline generation. 5 columns of excerpt text. My choice.

    But it's great, I love it, I've been looking for Goodnoows for a _long_ time. Thank you!

    Thanks a lot for the nice words.

    The number of happy and loyal users is growing and growing and our infrastructure costs are increasing as well – without any revenue. We have yet to figure out if and how we want to make Good Noows a freemium product.

    If you are seriously interested in “donating” please contact us at support[at]goodnoows.com

    Think about the contents of your welcome e-mail. It ended up in my junk E-mail folder. I use Windows Mail in standard configuration. Really nice app you have made :-)

    Hi Chris, awesome, thanks for the initiative.

    I’m happy to use it but can you first describe the issue that this is supposed to fix? :) Scrolling works fine on my iPad and I don’t have any other error reports on this topic. Ideally, please state iPad model, iOS version, and browser. Thanks!

  15. No Hover Effects

    Please remove the hover effects or allow me to turn them off.

    I find them very distracting, especially on the iPad.

    They shouldn’t be there on mobile. This is a bug. We are looking into it.

    Update: Chris, sorry but I can’t reproduce this. What do you mean by hover effects? At first I thought you are referring to the tooltips but I just successfully confirmed that they don’t appear on my iPad. Just on non-touch devices.
    Thanks
