Unread, the previously launched RSS reader app created by Riposte co-developer Jared Sinclair, has just received its first ever update which adds a number of fixes and options to the app.
Apart from the number of fixes and options added to the app via the new update, probably the most important among them is the option to hide read items from navigation screens, so that only unread items are visible.
The new update also adds an option where users can open folders as either a list of feeds or a list of articles, which is something similar to what Reeder offers.
Moreover, the Unread update adds an option to adjust the font size for the article view which is independent of the font size that has been set for the rest of the app.
Here is the list of additions and fixes to the app via the new update:
-Made the double-tap-to-mark-as-read gesture more forgiving. May your thumbs be at peace.
-Fixed a bug that could trigger an automatic refresh upon launch, ignoring the manual-only preference.
-Turns out some of the words in navigation bars are buttons. To make it clear, they have borders now. Who knew?
-Fixed an issue that made it difficult to select text by double-tap-and-hold when the selected text is a link.
-Fixed an issue that could cause refresh operations to fail prematurely under certain conditions, preventing a proper sync of new articles.
-Removed the link shortening button from the Twitter compose screen.
-Sign-in screens weren't using email keyboards when appropriate.
-Fixed bugs with state restoration that caused in the in-app browser to open App Store views, or worse, insta-launch other apps via URL schemes.
-Signing into Feedbin or FeedWrangler now ignores unintentional spaces in the username field.
-Fixed a bug that caused blank inline thumbnails for articles from certain feeds.
-Fixed numerous minor crashes related to background threading issues.
-Made image pre-caching less aggressive, thus fixing an issue that caused the size of the image cache to balloon out of control for some users.
-Fixed a bug that prevented slow image downloads from timing out after a reasonable interval.
-Fixed a crasher affecting certain FeedWrangler accounts.
-Fixed an issue that prevented Feedly users from un-saving an article.
-Fixed an issue that broke signing into Readability.
-The "Thanks" screen had the wrong title.
-Fixed a crash when using the contact form on a device without an email account.
-Hide the "Change Grouping" option when viewing article lists from a single feed.
-Decreased the distance required to trigger the web view back and options controls.
-Swiping to advance the cursor by one character didn't work correctly with emoji.
