Considering the stunningly enormous volume of news and news sources, single key keyboard shortcuts should be at the top of the priority list. If you'd like to charge $2.99 just to get that done, consider me a supporter.
Very much so. One of the problems with news readers these days, aside from Reeder on Mac OS X and iOS, is that there aren't quick and easy ways to do with news what you want. You have to click here and click there and open this and that menu. It's a pain, so I don't do it. Since I've now been relegated back to the Windows world, I have to deal with the fact that Reeder isn't available on Windows, and I can't very well handle all of my news on my iPhone or iPad. Please, oh please, keyboard shortcuts, and make them single key. For example, S for starred, T for Twitter, F for Facebook, E for email, P for post to blog, I for InstaPaper, N for next story, P for previous story, and sync with Google Reader instead of just sucking up the OPML file. Reader may not be great, but it's fantastic as a backup tool.
I can commiserate with you regarding the complexity of the target solution and the pain in implementation. It's no easy task. Might you be able to get syncing with Google Reader working first? I think a lot of people would be happy if you just synced up the feeds and groups, and Google has an API for this. If you offer that, then you can let Google do the heavy OPML lifting.
