All I want is a list of titles that you tap to read. Then scroll down to the next. When you scroll through they are marked for removal - no categories to manage, no folders to clean or organize and no need to manually remove anything. Just read what you like, and most importantly: new stuff comes in below so you just can keep on reading.
What’s so snuff about that? Most people won’t care, but I just hate how feeds these days keep unread items at the bottom AND new items come in at the top. The next item is above all you have already read, and then you need to scroll all the way down again to continue where you left off. This is madness. Not to mention the “algorithmic timelines”, which truly make everything appear random.
The second order of business is the actual content. Who gets to decide what you read, and the sources you trust? Your friends, some algorithm based on trends and guesses, or yourself? If you don’t find this obvious, think about the “small” interests people have - like motherhood, running shoes, a friend’s personal blog, etc. These will never have a newsflash, a category, or be trending. But they can still be/have important news to you.
All of this brings us to a super-slim feed, easy to scroll through on the commute, or by the breakfast table, with all new articles from sources that matters to you. A truly user-centric reading-focused experience.
It is the best feed-reader I’ve ever used, and I hope you will like it too!
