Suggestions for Improvement

What features would you like to see on AOL Reader

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Add Android app.

    This makes Feedly look like a child's web page. I will use AOL Reader as soon as there is a App. I love how clean and non cluttered it is. It might even be better than Google Reader was.

    • Remember login session across browser restarts

      Right now if you close and reopen browser with AOL Reader, AOL will require you to sign in again. This is annoying, please keep the cookies and let me just get to the Reader when I reopen the browser.

          • to add support unicode UTF-8 and right to left texts.

            I'm a Persian user. when I want to read a text which has a complex set of Persian and English characters, then whole words in the text are disordered. I think right to left text support in UTF-8 Unocode can complete this reader.
            Many thank for your good reader, it's the best replacement for gReader!

            • Add integration with Pocket, IFFT and others.

              It would be much appreciated if it were possible to quickly (i.e. via shorcut) share to a read it later system.

              • New Tab in Foreground or Background Toggle

                Clicking on the title of an article to go to the original web page opens a new tab in the background. Would be useful to be able to have a toggle option under "settings" to open in the foreground.

                      • create a native app for BlackBerry 10

                        I really, really like my BlackBerry 10 smartphone and while the mobile web version of AOL Reader works well on the BlackBerry 10 browser, I would LOVE to have a native app. It's relatively easy to port an Android app over to BB10, so please consider offering a BB10 app.

                        • Make the Reading List Layout options per feed, per category and for all

                          I'd like the Reading List Layout to be configurable per category and per feed, and additionally an option to set the layout for ALL feeds & categories.
                          I prefer some of my feeds in Card View, and others in List View.
                          Now I have to change views when switching between feeds.
                          ;)

                          • support for Full Feeds

                            In few RSS, which doesn't provide full feed. In Google Reader there are third part addon (Super Full Feeds for Chrome or D7 Google Reader on Android). They use readability mobilizer, instapaper mobilizer or google mobilizer to provide the full feed.

                            Since opening the web browser to view the content is not nice - slow and I can't focus on the content itself. It would be really niceto include this feature.

                            • On mobile web app - allow marking all visible articles as read

                              In google reader, specifically the mobile web app (google.com/reader/i) there was a way to display ~15 or however many articles would fit on your screen. At the bottom of the screen was a mark items as read button and a load more articles button. The key here is that the "mark items as read" button only marks the visible articles as read and then loads the next batch. So very simple and lightweight when on a mobile device.

                              • edit my account settings

                                I don't know if it is just me but I would really like to see my account settings from the reader and be able to edit/change them.

                                the only thing I see at the moment is signout or about.

                                I would like if I click on my user/name to take me to my settings
                                where I could link my accounts with aol/facebook/google, edit options, etc.

                                I don't know if I don't have this because I only login with my google account and to the reader and do not have a proper AOL mail account

                                note I am not talking about…

                                  A number of AOL properties (eg. aol.com, engadget) are IPv6 enabled. I would love to see AOL Reader work over IPv6.

                                    • Stop keyboard navigation scrolling past the beginning and end of a feed

                                      This is extremely annoying when one uses n/p or j/k to quickly return to the first post in a stream and it should stop scrolling but doesn't and worse, switches contexts to the previous or next feed. If there are people who like this feature, make it optional via settings. It's annoying to power users.
