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. show the count of stared items

    I like to use the "Star" function to mark articles for reading them later. Therefore it would be helpful if a count would appear next to the "Stared" Folder (indicating how much stared items are currently in my reader).

    • Move Tags to bottom of Post

      The tags feature is very prominent, given it's the 3rd piece of information on the post (1: Title, 2: Fetch Date, 3: Tags). If a user doesn't use tags, like myself, then this feature is useless - it's taking up real estate. I would rather just get to the post instead of the tags.

          • Don't use black as a background for code

            Can you provide an option to change the formatting for code samples (<pre> at a guess). The black background frequently makes it impossible to read - e.g. a sample may have dark blue text, which I simply cannot read on a black background, while the original site used a white background

              • Support for add to home screen on iOS

                I can add AOL Reader on Home Screen on my iOS devices but there is a problem... Support for tabbed pages is missing. There is no way for me to go back to Reader after opening an article for full story. All you need is to add some codes in your browser for Safari to enable tabbed pages.

                • Add a "Popular" File w/Includes Popular Articles Others Are Reading

                  Add a popular folder that is periodically updated with those articles with the most views or greatest increase in viewership (think I Twitter Trends).

                  • Full view items take too much space. (height)

                    Full view items take too much space. Article title should stay next to Feed name, not under. Wow with tags is also obsolete. (or should be smaller) When I am browsing 1 feed I know what is it, so it doesn't have to show it's name for every item.

                        I have been looking high and low for a professional rss reader that allows posting to this site so that I can continue adding to the popular blogger.com platform. Thanks for your time

                          • create an embeddable blogroll

                            The old Google Reader allowed you to create "bundles" of blogs and embed a list in the sidebar of your website, for example. Or create a list of recent posts of blogs you subscribe to.
