Any plans to increase font size? Max works out to be a 7 or 8 pt.
Which UI interface you mean? For article view, there’s already ‘font size’ setting in toolbar. Is it not enough for you? Please let me know a more detail of question.
Is there a way to delete the articles I’ve read. I see that you can filter them but I want to remove them from my iPad entirely.
As you pointed, there is no way to delete specific articles only. We expect similar effect by changing folder’s filter setting to unread only. It will automatically hide read articles in that folder. (And folder’s filter setting is also saved when changed. so, next time, you access that folder,it will display unread article only!)
BTW, RssBook is highly optimized and specialized for accommodating large articles. It does not load all the articles data. It load just index only. In fact, number of articles does not matter for most case.
