  1. 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.

      • unread feed.

        It should reflect the number of unread feed.

        Thank you.

        • 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.

            • 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…

                • View original feed source

                  It would be nice if I could somewhere find the link for the source of any of the feeds I have, so that I can share the feeds with friends more easily.

                    Thanks. The idea behind Good Noows is actually to share your news stream – or parts of it – to people that matter to you. So what you are asking for is a small part of a big feature which is not yet launched. Still working on it.

                  • remove filter bar

                    top bar can accommodate all options, gives more space for content

                        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!

                      • ... 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…

                        • Insert link to the Feedback system in the app

                          I'd very much like to have access to support options in the apps that I use on a regular basis. I only found the link because I was asked to give the app a 5-star review in the app, and the link is in the Chrome store. I can't imagine it would be harder than a few minutes work to add it next to the Newsstand or Settings button.

                            I am trying to add 15 different magazines that I like but somehow I receive an error message. How can I pick my favorite site and build my own newsfeed?
                            Let me know kindly what are the solutions for creating my fav news.

                              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...

                                Facebook is a good example for a 'newsfeed' with, let's say, maximum 3 stories per line and infinite scrolling. Would be much easier to follow.

                                • Allow us to vote with our wallets.

                                  That way, voting up will really benefit us by giving you the incentive to do it. So, you could make each vote count for 3 or 4 U.S. dollars, which would be optional and done privately so only you see who donated.

                                  That would make us want to vote for other ideas we wish we'd thought of, and really want, too. For me, that would be Night Mode.

                                    • Number of articles per magazine / newspaper

                                      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...

                                      • 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.
