Fiery Feeds Text Mode

Fiery Feeds 1.7 introduced the three article view modes Article, Web and Text. Where Article displays the article as contained in the RSS feed 1 and Web simply displays the linked website directly in the article view, the Text mode is a little more complicated.

There are three providers for Fiery Feed’s text mode. First there is readability, which uses Readability publicly available mobiliser 2 and might break whenever Readability changes their output or ends support for it 3.

The other two options are “Formatted” and “Text Only”. Both are open source scripts running on a server provided by Fiery Feeds 4. The Text Only more can parse articles more reliably, but does not include any images or other elements like lists.

The thing with providing a service like this is that a server costs money every month, while selling the app brings in revenue just once. That is why Fiery Feeds now also includes the option to become a patron and support both the ongoing development and my ability to provide services like text extraction. 5.

If you enjoy Fiery Feeds, please do become a patron. Thank you.

Multitimers 2.3 improves the today widget and adds full support for x-callback-urls. You can download Multitimers here

Fiery Feeds 1.6

What started in version 1.5 with NewsBlur, Inoreader, AOL Reader and The Old Reader and more importantly a more streamlined internal architecture for adding new services, now bears its fruits with version 1.6 and even more services. Newly supported in 1.6 are the selfhosted Tiny Tiny RSS and the read-it-later services Readability, Instapaper and Pocket.

You can download Fiery Feeds on the App Store.

Multi Timers Watch App

Multi Timers brings a few changes to the main app, like new alert sounds and a redesigned edit view, but the biggest change is that it now also includes an Apple Watch app. You can now see your timers and start them right from your wrist.

Also: Multi Timers now has a place on the website: http://cocoacake.net/apps/multitimers

iPhone_6_Plus_Vert_SpaceGray_sRGB_0914

Fiery Feeds 1.4 brings a couple of changes. Full support for iOS 8 and iPhone 6 / 6 Plus, including a special landscape view on the 6 Plus and a Today Widget, so can you quickly see the newest articles. You can buy Fiery Feeds on the App Store.

The second big change is that instead of a separate iPad and iPhone version, Fiery is now an universal app. If you bought the iPhone version, you can now install it on your iPad too.
I’m going to update the old iPad version too, but it is no longer for sale. If you’ve previously purchased the iPad only version, you can download it under “Purchases” in the App Store.
