Greed 2: Weekend update!
This weekend's update of Greed 2 adds a few new things, and fixes a couple of ones that needed fixing.
Removed the fading "read/unread" panels from the tops of the Feed list, Folder list, and Article list. They were getting in peoples' way, and weren't as cool looking as I'd hoped. Those items are now safely out of the way, on the options menu.
Mark all as read: You can now mark all the articles in a feed or label as read. Pick the "Mark all as read" option menu item in the Article list.
Filtering for all/unread items in article list now works correctly.
Changes to request headers sent to Google Reader to get GZipped content. Download times should be quicker. It's very quick on my Nexus One. Then again, everything I've tried so far is. (I guess I could test this on my G1, but that would take away from the time I get to hold the sweet Nexus One in my hand.)
New "default share address" preference. Specify an e-mail address here, and when you share an article, the "to" field will be populated with this value by default. I could have (perhaps should have) tied this into the contacts on the phone, and probably will at some point. For now, it's a free-form text field. So if you don't feel comfortable typing a valid e-mail address into this space, well... Get a relative to do it or something.
Preferences for "follow links" and "scale articles." These options affect the appearance of articles in the viewer. By default, "follow links" is turned off, which means you won't accidentally follow a link when you're touching the article. You can long-press any item in the article viewer (e.g. picture, link) to toggle these settings on and off for the current session.
Next up, I've got an experiment I want to try with Google Reader requests, which should make Greed somewhat faster for some operations. Also, a few UI improvements and fulfilling some feature requests.
Have fun, and let me know what you think.
