  1. Translate feeds in other languages to english

    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.

    • Refresh content for all posts in a feed

      Sometimes a dropped wifi connections which leave my posts with out their images. I can go into each post and refresh content but this takes a long time to long hold on each post and refresh content. It would be great if I could refresh the content at a feed level

      • Cleanup Cache

        NewsRob stores article assets (images, html etc.) to the SD card.
        When everything works fine NewsRob deletes those assets when the article itself gets deleted by NewsRob.
        But in some cases this automatic cleanup is not possible, e.g. NewsRob is uninstalled and then later on installed again. The old directories and files of the pre-existing articles will still be on the SD card.

        So in the future NewsRob should regularly remove all directories/files for which no article is existing in NewsRob's database anymore.

        • allow option to display unread count instead of, or in addition to, the #cached articles count

          For me, it would be more useful to see an unread count by each feed / folder rather than a count of read + unread articles.

          • Add Mobilizer Button

            Please add a button that allows you to either Mobilize an article in Google or Instapaper (better) mobilizers. This would mean when the RSS is only a preview you can read the text without having to open the whole page.

            I know there is the cut down option for syncing, but if you don't want to sync a whole feed mobilized, just an article you want to read, there currently is no option.

            This would greatly improve the experience in my opinion.

            • NewsRob Browser to keep cookie information

              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?

              • Add ability for 2 types of syncing (All and one)

                Add a second sync button to the toolbar so that you can choose to sync All articles and the another for the sync only folder (Currently "newsrob").

                It would be nice to allow all of my folders to sync automatically (When connected to WIFI, as defined in the syncing options or using Setting Profiles), and to only sync one folder when you aren't connected to WIFI.

                This would give the ability to keep up to date with your important feeds, without the time or data needed to download all your folder contents when you're out and about.

                • Support feedafever news server.

                  Could support be added for feedafever servers? I've moved to that from google reader and would love an offline reader for it on android. API info at http://feedafever.com/api

                  • rss filter

                    add user-defined word filter, so a rss feed title that contains this world is not downloaded.

                    exemple : name*,football,psp+theme

                    i get many rss i dont care about.maybe this would even make the download of feeds faster.

                    • Implement Reader-style mark read on scroll

                      Sorry if this has been discussed before, but could you add the option to mark items read as they scroll off the top of the screen, mirroring the functionality of the Google Reader webapp?

                        • 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.

                              1. Makesure you are viewing the list of unread items only (it doesn't
                              matter which list you are viewing, single feed or all articles, bug
                              applies to all)
                              2. For simplicity's sake, let's say the list contains articles titled
                              A to F.
                              3. Open article A, mark it as unread by swiping the header. Do the
                              same for articles B and C. (Make sure you advance through the articles
                              by the onscreen buttons, not by exiting to the article list and
                              selecting the next one).
                              4. View articles D and E, but this time leave…

                                If all the articles are pinned (thus read), show this to the user by changing the color of the bar.

                                This could perhaps be done by partially changing the color as well, to show the relation between unread and pinned...

                                • Allow the user to create home screen shortcuts to open chosen feeds/reading lists

                                  It would be really great if you could respond to the ACTION_CREATE_SHORTCUT intent and allow the user to long press on the home screen and create a shortcut to directly open a chosen feed or reading list (i.e. all items menu for any folder). This would be great for one-click access.

                                    When using a tablet in portrait mode for reading, the little next/last-item arrows are really far away from my thumbs.

                                    Can we have an option to have these arrows much nearer to the bottom?

                                        • When I open a tag, it should automatically default toAll articles

                                          When I open a tag,i have to select the tag, then select all articles then select the first feed. It would be great if it could just take me to the first unread feed after selecting the tag.
