Mr. Reader Prepares For Life After Google Reader With Newly Released Version 2.0

June 26, 2013
As you're probably already aware of, Google Reader is scheduled to be shut down on Monday, July 1. In preparation for this unfortunate event, many Google Reader apps have been adding support for other RSS feed services so that they may continue to function in a post-Google Reader capacity. And one of these apps is the newly updated Mr. Reader. Mr. Reader has just received its 2.0 update, which brings support for several Google Reader replacements, namely: BazQux Reader, Feedbin, FeedHQ, Feedly, Feed Wrangler, and Fever. Mr. Reader 2.0 also makes the app's Google Reader API endpoint editable. As noted by the app's developer: "This is useful for services to test their Google Reader compatible API against Mr. Reader." The update also adds support for the stock microblogging service StockTwits as well as the following fixes:
  • Portrait mode: The articles table now keeps its position when you are in a folder and go back
  • Fixed a crash in the Pocket view
  • Fixed a bug when you used the 'mark items above as read' functionality and the first row was only partially visible
  • The reordering of tags was broken
Mr. Reader 2.0 is available now in the App Store as a free update or as a new $3.99 download. The app is compatible with iPad running iOS 5.0 or later.
