Update: iPhoneX Supported

It’s been a long while from last update but we never forgot RssBook. We gave extra time to accommodate to the new device and iOS.

    • Support for iPhoneX.
    • Fix the bug that starred(save for later) mark does not sync correctly when using Feedly account. If you have missing starred articles, enable ‘Resync All Starred Articles’ at the bottom of sync settings.
    • Add side margin option for article view.
    • Add ‘Mark All As Read’ button at the toolbar of the article list.
    • Update the notification for background fetch on iOS 10 later.
    • Deprecated support for iOS 7. Only support iOS 8 later. We can not keep supporting because it’s not possible to test on iOS 7 anymore.
    • Free version of this app is rename to ‘RssBook Lite’. (App Store policy changed to restrict the ‘free’ word usage in app title.)

Update(2.0.2): Support for Compacting Database

We didn’t forget RssBook. Here is a small but long anticipated feature, ‘Compact database file’. It’s located at Settings->Maintenance.

Generally you don’t need to run this, but it will be useful in case, when unsubscribed a lot of feeds, or have been using this app massively for a long time. Internally, this uses ‘VACUUM’ command of sqlite database, which rebuilds the entire database, deletes blank space and organizes fragmented pages.

Warning: You can not cancelĀ  this action. You must wait patiently until it finishes. If app is terminated while compacting, you will be forced to wait until completion at next app launching. In our test it completes quickly at the devices such as iPhone 6 or iPad Air 2, but older devices than that it can take a lot more time up to several minutes depending on database size.
