    I guess it depends on which feature is most needed. At the moment the top 3 (no order) are:
    • Offline Support
    • Portrait Mode
    • Sharing via Email,Twitter, Facebook


    I think I need to set up a poll to decide which to build next.

    GeeReader 1.8b1 worked well for me. I like the new menus.

    A couple of (probably easy to add) features I miss:
    * tweak default font size
    * an unread items counter on the status bar

    Thanks for sharing this app! Wolf

    Sharing, font options..... And I know we can search this, but it might be helpful to include a link to instructions for installing a .bar file.

    Thanks for your continuing work on the app!

    I'll add the option to set the default font size tomorrow.
    Can you maybe send me a screenshot highlighting the area where you'd like to see an additional unread counter?

    Will try to get a doctored screenshot soon.
    I read the items maximized in full screen, so I was thinking of useful to have an unread/total counter displayed in the bottom bar (close to the Star/Like/Share/KeepUnread buttons, or the prev/next pagination arrows)
    Thanks! Wolf

    Well, I see the GUI methods for loading a BAR file have been posted, and I'll post up my old thread that has a very simplistic method for loading, just extract the zip into a folder and then setup the batch file. Once that's done, all you have to do is drag and drop the BAR file onto the batch file and it will load it.

    The new version works great for me! Few little bugs I found for you to dig up, nothing major just usability fixes.

    When bringing up the drop downs from the top to select new items, unread, etc. I noticed if I touch anywhere else on the screen it acts as if I hadn't brought that window up. IE. if I click on an article, it loads it up. What I would expect to see as a user would be if I touch outside of the drop down window, it would simply close it and return to the regular view.

    The "Blogs I am following" entry is empty and it gave me a button to view all items. The button only appeared once, and while I was waiting for it to work I moved to the CrackBerry feed and it notified me the CrackBerry feed was empty. (No button there) This isn't a big issue, move to a different feed and back and everything works normal again. But I wasn't sure if you wanted the button to be displayed more then once, it does seem to disappear till you restart the app.

    Otherwise looking great! I really like the look of the new article boxes and the slimming of the top control bar. I did find the gesture area in the article window, it's basically the entire area from the top of the article window to the bottom of the title section. (Where the name and author is listed) Gestures work well and it's a nice alternative to the little buttons at the bottom

    Thanks for posting this here! I know betas aren't for everyone, but there's a good portion of people here who eat this stuff up.

    When is the new update expected to hit App World? I have a MAC therefore can't sideload anything.

    It's the best rss reader by the way. I've tried all of them and it's easily the easiest to use and the most solid.

    Thanks

    I agree. I'll see what I can do

    The "Blogs I am following" entry is empty and it gave me a button to view all items. ....
    I've noticed that the "Blogs I am following" folder returned by the Google Reader API even when its empty (and not visible on the Google Reader website). I'll specifically excluded this category if it is empty. I'll also make sure I handle other regular categories properly when they have no feeds.

    You can actually initiate a gesture from almost anywhere in the article detail view except on the article text (which is a web view), or on the article navigation bar at the bottom, or on the article title (which is a clickable link). You can even make the gesture next the article panel (on the transparent black area) when the article panel is minimized.

    I just have to sort out a few bugs and usability issues found in the beta and then I'll submit to Appworld for approval. I'll probably submit it for approval this coming week sometime. RIM takes about 1 week to approve the new release.

    Glad you like it

    Thanks for the feedback on that, hopefully I'm not coming across as nagging, I just wanted to give you a few things I know users get hung up on. Besides, isn't development more fun when you've got people engaging, testing and giving feedback?

    Thanks again also for the great app! Still my favorite RSS reader.

    Has anyone else had probelms with updating through AppWorld? Everytime I updated, the old version would remain. Appworld would show the download but the new version would not replace the old version. I doubt this is an issue with GeeReader, but figured that many of you guys might have had the same issue.

    I finally got it working by deleting the old version from my home screen. Then deleting it from AppWorld. Then restarting the Playbook. After the restart, went into Appworld and reinstalled.

    I found that I had both versions on my homescreen. This also happened with Flash games. I just deleted the old versions on the home screen. I'm hoping this will stop my continual update prompts for the aforementioned apps.

    Oops....I think the "2 icons on homescreen" issue may have been as a result of something I did. I changed the name of the application package file name. Apparently this results in you ending up with 2 application icons...one for the old version and one for the new one. I thought the installation process would be smart enough for this not to cause an issue.....

    You can simply delete the icon pointing to the old version and the old version of the application will be uninstalled. You shouldn't have to reboot your PB.

    Sorry for the inconvenience this may have caused.
