    It's back now... and thanks for the tip for the read article toggle.

    Great idea! I'll put together a post.

    Try the latest build (available in the App Catalog). It fixes it on my Pre3.

    Yeah, there are enough lame app icons in the catalog already...

    Depending on what ambitions you have for porting Feedspider to other platforms (to make some $$ off of it; perhaps an Enyo version?), getting your hands on www.feedspider.web would be ultra-cool.

    New build (0.8.4) is up, and is being submitted to the app catalog as we speak.

    Thanks for this! Works great so far on my Veer. I had been reading rss feeds using inoreader through the browser since the web version of the Old Reader was pretty slow on the Veer. This helps a lot.

    Anybody seeing problems with newest articles show up? Not related to the app but more to do with the server crash they had. I went on the home page of TOR and it says that I have new articles in some feeds, but when I open that feed I only see articles from a while back.

    We might want to start looking into alternatives.

    Can we bug Feedly again for API access?

    This is unfortunate. They have a great product and a good API, but if it is taking over this much of their lives, when they don't have a good way to monetize it, then I thank that they're making the right decision.

    So that means for most of the users of the app, we will have to execute some sort of backup plan. Unfortunately, webOS receives fairly little love these days when it comes to access to exclusive APIs. I have requests into Feedly and Digg, but they seem to have priorities higher than making an public API available. Hopefully they get to it soon. Digg, at least, has one planned. Go here and vote it up if you want it.

    The three options that have APIs available at the moment are Tiny Tiny RSS (a roll your own solution, which honestly looks tempting after this), NewsBlur, and AOL Reader. Unfortunately, the first two have rather unGoogle-like APIs, so would require significant rewrites of the app, and AOL's is fairly limited. However, as AOL seems to be the lesser of the evils (ironic, eh?), it looks like it will have to be the next target.

    I'll see what I can come up with

    Can I make a suggestion? I had been using Inoreader as my Google Reader replacement on my browser. There is both desktop and mobile sites. I liked it more than the Old Reader for the mobile browser. Desktop versions are about the same.

    Desktop: InoReader; Light and Fast RSS Reader

    Mobile: http://www.inoreader.com/m/

    I only went back to the Old Reader after learning about FeedSpider. Now that the Old Reader is ending, is it possible to make FeedSpider work with Inoreader? Seems like they just released their API and it may be similar to Google Reader. I don't have any knowledge about this stuff. Hope you find this information useful.

    I would still vote for Feedly if possible. Seems like that's where all the traffic is these days, and they seem to manage their capacity issues just fine.

    I tweeted them to urge them to give us the API:

    The plan is to ultimately support whatever is available. I took a look at the InoReader API, and it looks to be another Google Reader clone, so it *should* be relatively straightforward to add support.

    I will tackle it first, as AOL reader is a little more involved, and I need to add support for multiple providers anyways, so this is a good way to do this. AOL reader will be next on the list, as I expect that I will need to add OAuth2 support for Feedly anyways.

    Don't worry, I will add Feedly support as soon as I get access to their API. But I can't do anything until then, so stop asking! ;-)

    I would love to support one of our own, and he says that he plans to have a Google Reader-compatable API available, so as soon as he does, I'll add support.

    Hi,

    This probably isn't useful, but I've been trying a thing called Rainmeter on the desktop. It's basically a set of displays to make the desktop look 'fancy'. One option was RSS feeds. These were tied into google reader and went dark when it closed.

    I went looking and found this:

    Rainmeter Forums - View topic - Google Reader Alternatives for Rainmeter

    So I'm now using uninews, which seems to be a reader built in the scripting language for Rainmeter. As I recall, I just had to alter URL's for each instance/feed of this display. I can upload the file if you want. Creative Commons license & 70kb. Obviously, this won't just work on webOS, but perhaps the mechanism might be of interest to those that understand this stuff.

    Of course, I'm entirely ignorant here, but you may have guessed that I'm working towards the suggestion that feedspider might move from being a front end for various readers to being a reader itself. I have no idea how much work this would involve or if it is advantageous over the current appoach. My use of RSS has been with live bookmarks, rainmeter or feedspider, so I have no preferred reader site - the old reader is the only one I've tried & just to use the app.

    In rainmeter, clicking the headline opens the website in the browser - as does clicking 'read more' in feedspider, so I rarely see a reader website and have no preference...

    Or we could lobby the old reader to keep it's doors open for the pitifully small webOS community,,,! ;-)

    In fact, maybe that's not such a bad idea - as Aressel has gone to the trouble of building this app for their API, they might look kindly upon it. Maybe introduce an app id in the API and allow feedspider access. What was the last count? 165 downloads? As long as subscriptions were via the app it might work... or we somehow confirm we are all on webOS to get our accounts protected from the purge...

    No harm in asking.

    There was an update to the blog post here. It looks like they may not be shutting down after all!

    Don't worry, app development will continue as planned. I don't want to have another scare like this :-)

    Yeah, we can all relax. I've heard that thanks to the webOS connection, HP have bought them out and will be doubling down....

    ;-)

    ...but c'mon we're all used to these deaths and revivals now!

    Thanks! I took a quick look, and it looks like it's done in LUA, which is not directly supported by webOS, but I might be able to glean some information from it.

    While an "offline mode" like this is certainly possible, it would require a significant re-architecting of the app. It is currently designed as an online Google Reader-type client, so there is no provision for local storage. I would like to add it someday, but that is way down the roadmap. If you need something right now for webOS that does not depend on a web service, then there are a number of apps available, such as Headlines2. Even Glimpse offers an RSS widget.

    555 downloads as of today and new downloads keep trickling in.
