I always hoped app.net would have become a new Twitter.
Not only was it friendlier than Twitter towards developers and users, but I was delighted every time I had to interact with it: I was using Riposte. If you followed the previous link I can tell you that I share Manton’s opinion:
Riposte is arguably the best social networking client out there.
I was therefore delighted and scared when Supertop announced that they sold Unread to Golden Hill Software. Delighted because the new owner has more time to work on it, and scared as what change is always scary.
I immediately wrote to John, Golden Hill Software’s owner. He quickly replied that he would look into it.
A few days later a new version of Unread came out but, alas, no fix for my issue.
I was kinda disappointed. I had to wait for the next release.
But no. John wrote me saying he pushed a PR to Stringer fixing the issue.
What a great developer! If you’re on iOS, please give it a spin. As a bonus, the newest version merges the iPhone and iPad version, which is timely as I realized some months ago that Mr. Reader, my favorite iPad RSS reader, was not developed anymore.
So give it a go, and support a great developer!
I don’t think anyone is surprised when I characterize myself as anti-social. ↩︎
