  1. An "All elements" category

    Like on google reader, a category that would show all the news from all other subjects

  3. mark as read when scrolling (setting)

    In google reader when you scroll away from an article, it is marked as read. I like this setting because I prefer to skim many (hundreds) of feeds and headlines and let the less interesting ones go by.

    Great idea. A bit tricky because in Good Noows the articles have different scroll heights depending on the applied visual style. But we’ll look into it. In the short term we are working on an “Mark all as read” button, which you could use after having scrolled through the stream of articles.

  4. open feed without the popup

    i don't like the pop-up. it breaks up the flow of reading. could you set one of the styles to NOT use the pop-up window for viewing the feed? and instead just expand the entry in place (like google reader).

    other than that this looks great! very clean.

  6. Change the size of the stories on the page depending on their importance. Just like a newspaper.

    When you dont have much time it would make it easier to 'skim' the paper just reading the stories of major relevance at the time.

  7. Aggregate similar items

    If you follow a lot of news sources that have some overlap in the topics covered, it would be nice to get similar news items grouped together.

  10. I want to be able to click on an "+" and expand article on the same page. Not pop up or new page.

    I want to be able to click on an "+" on the right and expand article on the same page. Not have a pop up on the same page or open a new page.

    Its like the "group" functionality in Excel.. (...and don't kill this idea because of reference of a Microsoft product!)

  12. Font selection and custom font sizes

    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.

  14. Search capability for past feed items

    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.

  15. add statistics on read articles.

    It'll be awesome to be able to track your personal reading statistics.
    Which sources do I read the most and from which categories? How do these values change over time?....this kind of stuff.
    Would be appreciated!

  16. Reduce clutter and increase snappiness

    First of all, goodnoows is terriffic, however...
    I have noticed that the site is currently getting more and more cluttered with features and buttons.

    Please keep the interface as simple as possible, REALLY SIMPLE!

    I only want to see the features, that I use everyday on the dashboard. In my opinion everything else can be hidden in the settings.

    Examples:
    - I do not change the font size everyday, shove it into the settings
    - Adding feeds could be subsumed under one button ("+"), that then opens a menu like the filter for sources menu
    - I also do not…

    Started reducing the number of icons on the toolbar and migrating them into the new Settings dialog. Will do more of this as we move towards a more touch screen friendly UI over time.

    Also, settings dialogs much more snappy now.

  18. Having some notifications

    Using tweedeck too, their notification system is really cool.
    To give the possibility to goodnoows user to manage their notifications for each topic would be awesome because currently if we wanna see what's new, we must go on GoodNoows.
    We don't necessarily have the time to check. Notification would be desactivated.

    in the box that pops up to read the news item, the read more button is always at the bottom and I always have to scroll even if I know I'm going to be going to the link no matter what. Maybe have the read more link even before the box as an option (like where the share button is)

    More votes for this?

    Please note that if you always want to read the article in a new window you may completely disable the in-app reading dialog. A click on an article then takes you directly to the publisher’s website. You configure set this in the Settings menu.

  20. Add tagging to feeds and stories

    It would be great if you could add personal tags to feeds and stories, all the more for untagged feeds.

    Thanks
