It’s been a long time from last update. Finally, we complete major update for RssBook. This includes following features: Support for iPhone 6 / 6 Plus, iOS 8 and ‘Background Sync’. It will be a great present for enthusiastic RssBook users.
But there are some thing to note:
1) From this version we decide to impose a limitation on free version. In free version, sync will be limited to max 10 feeds at a time.
2) No more support for iOS 6. To keep up our development, we decided to support only iOS 7 or later. iOS 6 user still can use the version 1.7.1 at App Store.
New version may be available about 5~15 days.
After upgraded to iOS7, our font mix in cell view does not look good and become obsolete. Finally, we have made the time to repair this.
- Design update for more modern look & feel.
- Performance improvements (from internal engine optimization).
RssBook become 64 bit compatible. Performance boost for the iPhone 5s and new iPads.
And some annoying bugs fixed.
- Scrolling frozen in article view from time to time.
- Sync order setting reset for feedly account type.
- Image viewer bugs.
Another big update. Finally, RssBook supports for Feedly.
- Add new account type, Feedly. If you ever use Google Reader, Feedly is nearly same as it. Manage subscriptions/labels at Feedly. View at RssBook with extreme archive/offline support. You can get a free Feedly account at here. Feedly app is also available on Apple App Store.
- Sync settings are refined. ‘Article saving count at first sync’ option are renewed as ‘Min/Small/Quarter/Half/Full’. Default value is changed to Quarter. ‘Max Article Count per Feed'(renamed from Article Saving Count) get more options at lower counts. ‘Image Saving per Feed’s default value has changed to 20 (from 50). You can find more detailed explain at the footer text of each select list.
- New Compact article cell size with text only option.
- New Color theme – Dark Gray, Gray, Alice Blue. Especially, ‘Dark Gray’ is really great, it’s going to be second default color.
- Export to OPML file at Manage Feeds toolbar bar menu when standalone account type.
- Several bugs fixed- Occasional Facebook login crash fixed. Article view stabilized.
This may be the most anticipated news.
Feedly is the next sync service provider for RssBook after Google Reader retirement. Feedly is well-known as the best replacement candidate for Google Reader API service. Their service is reliable and powerful, even comparable to Google Reader API. They opened API service to public about a month ago. And today we has finally complete integration works with Feedly service and summitted new version(1.6.0) to Apple App Store. Just wait about a week~
