I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

      Unfortunately this is depending on the request limit of the Twitter API. Their interface is ridiculous and rejects our requests after we reached a certain limit per day. We have an idea how to circumvent this. Stay tuned please.

    • The product is nice, but:

      1. It’s very annoying, when “loading” happens down the road and have to search the last article I’ve seen.
      2. App for Android is much needed.

      Thanks for your time and consideration.

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

          • Option to search news by date or custom timeline

            When I don't read news for more then a day, it is impossible to catch up what happened day before or two days before. And it looks like it eats your ram memory when you are trying to read anything older then yesterday news (I don't have top of the line PC).

                  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.

                  • New Microsoft OneNote APIs available for Developers

                    Hello –

                    I work for the Microsoft OneNote team on a project related the new Microsoft OneNote Cloud API. As part of this work I’ve been doing some research on scenarios connected to note taking and capture, and I saw your app in the Evernote app center. I was thinking that your app would also be a good fit for OneNote integration.

                    OneNote has been a core part of the Microsoft Office platform for over 10 years, and has already shipped to hundreds of millions of customers. The new API provides developers with an easy way to add OneNote Cloud…

                          • Productive follow list

                            I would like to have option to see how productive each site I follow is. For example if I have never read any news from Mashable for minimum of 30 days (lower limit) and upper limit could be customizable, it should be suggested to not follow anymore. And any news I open and read, there should be option to be labeled by me as useful and unseful and by that feedback suggest some new websites to follow or to unfollow current ones.

                                  I am unable to see any content, just shows "Loading" at top of page when I log into my account. I just signed up for an account.

So all the ways I tried it just see loading at the top of the page. The panels show up at top of page and left of page, but no content will load. I've tried it with all of my plugins shut off in chrome, and I've tried…

                                    Hi Erik, thanks for letting us know!

                                    Everything works fine for us. Sometimes feeds with invalid code or unescaped special characters in the content can temporarily mess up the stream. This is the only thing I can think of.

                                    - Since you say “Loading” I assume you are using Good Noows in English?
                                    - Did you activate/deactivate or add any sources/feeds after you signed up?
                                    - Any chance you could open the Newsstand dialog and let me know which sources/feeds you have activated there?
                                    - Or let me know the email address you logged in with? (you can also reach me at support@goodnoows.com)

                                    Apologies for this. I have no idea what this could be. Would be awesome if you could help us out. Thank you.

                                  • Allow others to see *your* view and not default when you share.

                                    Sharing the link only sends them to a new user's default screen. Not really sure why, but I want to share *my* chosen stream of content with my team at work. How to do this??

                                      If you send someone the URL from your browser’s address bar they will always arrive at the sign up screen. Currently the only way to share news is to post it into your favorite social network’s activity stream by using the small Share icon on the top right of every news story in Good Noows.

                                      The feature I think you are looking for is actually planned! I want to enable users to share their whole Good Noows stream – their personal newspaper if you will – with their peers. But this is not yet possible.

                                      images are too small

                                        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!

                                        • Integrate the YouTube v3 API so that we can get new videos from our subscribed channels

                                          now that YouTube has shutdown that feature via RSS in the v2 API. That would give GoodNoows an edge over other news readers.
