Thanks for the suggestion. More supporters for this?
I could see this being useful. you could possibly have a theme optimized for slow internet connections/computers and a theme for people that don't really care for the whole "web app" theme
I wouldn't mind having them for individual feeds... Quite a few of my feeds update very intermittently, like once a week or once a month. It would be nice If I can see when they get updated. Maybe make it so that you can turn on or off the counters for each category, then I can just move all of the slowly updated feeds into their own folders.
I agree. Native iPhone/iPad/Android apps are on the roadmap. On the way there I’d like to optimize the mobile experience of the existing web app as well. If I only had the time/resources… Thanks for documenting this idea.
Honestly? I consider this to be the ONLY alternative to Google reader. I'm still trying to organize my feeds (with GReader I just had them all dumped in the same folder, but GN doesn't care for that as much), but so far I'm happy with it. I recommend you focus on making a mobile friendly website version than a dedicated Android app, because if you're on Android you're already committed to the Google ecosystem.
So far it seems the current version would work, but the scrolling doesn't work, and it's very crowded on small screens (Especially on a 480x360px Blackberry)
