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.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Pretty please add support for Open Watch

    Open Watch is an app that displays Mail, SMS and other notifications on bluetooth watches like the Sony Ericsson MBW150. Check out the app here: http://tinyurl.com/m7e8tn

    • stop noisy feeds drowning out quiet feeds

      At the moment, feeds which get a lot of posts quickly push out articles from less busy feeds. This is because, when the number of articles in the reading list exceeds the maximum, the oldest ones are deleted regardless of which feed they come from.

      If we could specify a maximum number of articles for individual feeds, the latest posts in every feed would always be available, no matter what the frequency of posts may be.

      • Allow seeing just own subscriptions

        So far NewsRob allows seeing either "friends' shared articles" or "user's own subscriptions + friends' shared articles" (or contents of any folder created by the user, like "Listen Subscriptions").
        It would be great to have an option to see just my own subscriptions' articles (without all that "friends' buzz").
        I would suggest having implemented this as a new top-level "group" called "My Subscriptions". So on the top level there will be:
        - [all articles] (with all the articles)
        - My Subscriptions (with all feeds I'm subscribed to myself)
        - Shared by Friends (with all articles my friends shared)
        - "Listen…

        • Integrate with PostRank

          PostRank (formely AideRSS) - http://www.postrank.com/ - is a project that calculates the "rank" of articles based on different criteria (number of comments, number of times article was bookmarked, mentioned on Twitter, etc.)
          And it provides an API to access those "ranks" (http://www.postrank.com/developers).
          So NewsRob could utilize that API to retrieve and show articles ranks somewhere near their titles.
          NewsRob could also implement PostRank-based filtering so that it is possible to display only "Best" or "Great" or just "Good" articles.
          You can see, for example, how it is implemented with PostRank's own Firefox addon for Google Reader - http://labs.postrank.com/gr

          • Sync Read State automaticaly when reading article

            I'm a former user of the iPhone and the biggest impact when I moved on to the Droid was changing my RSS Reader. Now I'm totally used to the newsrob UI but one thing is still bothering me: I have to always sync the articles after reading it on the phone in order to mark then as read on google reader too. I know that this can be an issue for some without unlimited data plans, so implementing this as an option on the settings would be great :)

            • Drop the price

              5 Euros ($6.75) is way too much to pay for the pro version. Dropping the price to $2-3 would not only be far more reasonable, but you'd sell more and ultimately make more money.

                Maybe you could add the Polish language for user interface? I could deal with the translation if it would be necessary.

                • Download Alt Text for Images and display from the context menu

                  Sites like xkcd make use of alt text with the images. It would be very nice to be able to view this text within NR. an option in the context menu would work very well for this.

                    • Add the ability to toggle Notifications on a per-label(tag) basis

                      Right now, you can turn on Notifications for any individual feed (provided you have Notifications turned on in the general options). It would be nice to also be able to turn notifications on (or off) for an entire label (tag/folder/whatever you call it).

                      That way, it would be easier to manage notifications in bulk. For example, a user could turn on notifications for existing categories in google reader, or create a special "NewsRob Notifications" tag to manage which feeds to be notified of.

                        I am a registered user of Financial Times (www.ft.com). The website only allows full article download when you have logged in. I believe this information is stored in the cookie.
                        When I use NewsRob to download full articles, is there a way for it to use and store the cookies?

                          • Hide Read Articles 'Later'

                            Hi. I have one of those grocery list app and when I check off something off the list, it stays visible until I restart the app. This is good in case an item was accidentally checked off ... or if I want to refer to what was checked off ...

                            I think the same could apply to NR. For instance, in NR if read articles are hidden, right away. So, if you use the left/right arrows to go from articles to articles and want to return to an article you saw from the feed page, you need to unhide read…

                              Currently if you open an link or article in the external browser you loose the ability to navigate article forward/back if you switch (longpress homebutton on device) back to NewsRob. Instead of the next/previous article you jump back to the feed folder (there you must search your last readed article and click again).

                                  • implement google reader feed management

                                    Implement features that make it easier to manage google reader feeds. For example, (1) adding a feed from the browser, which could be implemented very easily using "Share Page" functionality, (2) manage feed bundles, etc. I would certainly upgrade to Pro if these were added. I would be content even if it just linked in to the Google Reader web service for management (as opposed to an Newsrob embedded interface).

                                      I would like to control notifications by Locale. It will be great if we can set "enable notification" OR "disable notification".

                                        • add flicking from labels to feed view to article list

                                          Allow the users to use left to right gestures to navigate through the menus: Folders <-> Feed List <-> Article List. I personally do not use these gestures to mark the feeds as read/unread. This would fast scanning the state of all your feeds. A related request is to show the number of unread articles insteaf of the number of articles in the feed. Again for fast-scanning the feeds. But that's already asking for too much...
