The renowned RSS News app for iPad, Mr. Reader has been revamped to version 3.0, which brings a brand-new interface for iOS 7, support for 64-bit A7 processor powered devices, Reading List and many more.
Firstly, the app has been optimized for Apple’s latest OS. Things are now a bit flatter and clearer. Alongside the refreshed interface, the update also features a new icon and support for 64-bit A7 processor powered iOS devices.
The app now supports automatic background sync. Moreover, Aol Reader has also been added to the app as an optional RSS sync service. While the support for article tagging is currently not implemented but will be included once the AOI is revamped to offer necessary functionality.
The latest version also brings support for Reading List and offers the ability to edit Feedbin API endpoint. Moreover, there’s also a new ‘Article View’ option that specifies if the links should be opened within the app or in one of the applicable 3rd party browsers.
The update also includes the following new features:
- You can now share your stuff even with your friends of friends’ in Facebook.
- Added some new article viewer fonts; Avenir, OpenDyslexic, and PT Serif.
- Support for self-signed SSL certificates.
- Brings a new pull down gesture in order to start a synchronization.
- You can now use table settings to set for individual feeds or folders.
- Added a new ‘Coast by Opera’ option to the browsers section.
- Support for image catching: You will now receive notifications to inform you about ‘cancelled or completed by iOS’ while running in the background. You can also turn off these notifications in the Synchronization settings.
- You are now allowed to share your stuff through AirDrop.
Moreover, the image caching now instantly starts when an article is marked and auto-download is turned on in the synchronization settings. In the earlier version, it would only start after a synchronization or when manually started. In addition, if an offline image caching is turned on, all of the article images are cached, and then they will be used to build the article thumbnail when offline.
Furthermore, the update also brings significant bug fixes which offers a better user experience.
On the while, this is definitely a major update with welcome new features and enhancements. It’s a great delight for dedicated Mr. Reader users!
