    • Sync only when plugged in

      I've tried setting to sync only when on WiFi, but what I'm really trying to save is battery life and not bandwidth. Syncing when charging would work better since I could keep from killing the battery when travelling or missing syncs when I can't find WiFi.

      • Instapaper Mobilizer as optional mobilizer

        Currently, NewsRob uses Google Mobilizer to save traffic when opening feed item source pages. This is good enough, but Google Mobilizer is anything but designed for easier reading and does not filter content as good as alternative mobilizer services.

        Instapaper provides its own open mobilizer API that uses very readable, smarter and better filtered mobilizer. I would highly suggest that NewsRob implements Instapaper mobilizer as an alternative option, off by default.

        • Separate syncing read and unread articles

          While usability issues are addressed by adding the "Sync and keep unread articles only" changes, I kind of wish the "All article" synchronization was actually usable. Read and unread articles should have separate counts. Unread articles could have an "all unread articles" option, and read articles could have a "don't cache read, unstarred articles" option.

              • Space out the feed list view better. It looks cramped as of now.

                Right now when I select a Feed to read its items, the item view is very cramped .. vertical spacing is almost nil and font is small. Its very straining on the eyes.
                For one, the blocks are not of the same size... I know it saves space but for some reason it looks awkward. Whether a title spans across one or two lines, the block size should remain the same. UI will look much cleaner that way.

                In general the Feed listing as well as item listing boxes should have more height. It will be much easier on the…

                • Additional NewsRob Pro Widget functionality

                  In NewsRob Pro, when user creates a widget that is an Label View or Feed View, he should be asked one additional question:

                  * if creating Label View, he is asked - Show Feeds -or- Show All Articles -or- Read First. If Feed list, he is shown all Feeds in the Label. If Show All Articles, he is shown All Articles in the Label. If Read First, he skips showing list of feeds or feed items, and reads the first article within the label, depending on the order set by the user.

                  • Improve Skin support to make this a beautiful app

                    As a Pro user who was enticed with the promise of better UI via skins, I am somewhat disappointed to find that on Android a "skin" means just changing the colors. This simply doesn't do in 2010. I really suggest that skin platform is reworked to change all graphic elements of the UI, as follows:

                    * Background - not simply a color, but also textured (i.e. rough carbon, dark glass, soft pastel textures)
                    * Font, Font Color, Font Size
                    * List backgrounds - background for list items that are read, unread, starred, shared
                    * Color Bullets for different feeds -…

                    • Share article content instead of just the link. Was: share RSS article contents with Evernote

                      Currently, Newsrob allows Sharing of articles with apps, e.g. Evernote. But only the link gets shared as a note.

                      Would it be possible to share the entire article content with apps, e.g. as a note in Evernote?

                      • Prevent freezing during Sync

                        I use NewsRob Pro to read 200-300 articles on any given week day. Regularly, I get NewsRob UI freezing while its synching over a slow connection (3G). If that happens I'm stuck on whatever article I'm reading and can't move forward/backward for 10s of seconds.

                        It would be great if syncing would be handled in the background w/o affecting the UI performance and articles appear in the list once they have been successfully fetched.

                          add a 1-line showing the date of feed. e.g. "today" then list all today's feeds. Or "yesterday", or specific dates. Would help me to remember what feeds are new.

                          • Display used bandwidth in Notification window / plus ability to set a bandwidth limit

                            I'd like to know how much bandwidth NR is using when it's syncing... ideally I could see this info in the NR notification window.

                            Also, the ability to set a bandwidth limit for background (sync) activities would be nice.

                            • "Star" articles quickly in the list view

                              I usually use add a star to some articles I want to read later, so it could be very useful to be able to add a star when you are seeing the article list.

                              In the same way you do when you are in Google Reader list view and you can click in the star on the left of the tittle of the article.

                              Do I explain correctly? (I'm sorry for my not so good English)

                                I find it very useful to "sort by magic" on Google Reader because there ain't no way I'm going to be able to read all articles in chronological order. It'll put the most important articles at the top rather than the newest. Of course, this is contingent on adding the Google Reader "like" button.

                                • Make Newsrob Pro available outside of the Android market too?

                                  Hi,

                                  I really like Newrob, but as I live in a country where there is no paid market access, I'm not able to support Newsrob even though I like it.

                                  Would you consider making Newsrob buyable via other channels? For instance you might like to see how the authors of MyBackup Pro and Locale did it. That'd be really great for users who'd like to give you money too :)

                                    I get some feeds in Spanish, and I have to go on my computer to translate them whenever Newsrob downloads it. It would be nice if there was a translate option just like in Google Reader.

                                      • A snippet of 2/3 lines of an article below its title

                                        What about an an option to display a snippet of
                                        2/3 lines of the article below its title directly in the article list: this should help getting some more hints before deciding to open or skip the article itself and looking at the next one...

                                        • Minimal article reading interface

                                          Reduce the interface when reading articles to virtually nothing. After you start reading an article there's no point having a large toolbar that takes up a large chunk of space that has the title/star in it. In addition if it is possible, can the top system bar be removed as well? In xscope everything is hidden unless you swipe down to view them. This makes more sense, when you read a long article all this interface takes up valuable screen estate, and this effect is greatly pronounced in landscape where the toolbar doesn't seem to scale with the reduced height…
