2020 was a big year for Unread. I released version 2.0 in February. Unread 2 added the automatic webpage text feature with caching, article actions, subscription management, hardware keyboard navigation, multiple window support, and more.

Since then I have released these updates:

  • Version 2.1 added trackpad and mouse support for iPadOS 13.4 and the Magic Keyboard.
  • Version 2.2 added new article actions.
  • Version 2.3 added home screen widgets.
  • Version 2.4 added widget improvements, layout improvements, and Unread context menus as an option over system context menus.

The subscription pricing model is helping me to deliver frequent improvements. Plans are likely to change over time, but I anticipate at least three more 2.x updates before shipping Unread 3.0.

I have one big area of focus for Unread 3 and have started work on it. I am spending about half of my development time on that Unread 3 feature set, and about half of my development time on Unread 2.x updates. I want to continue delivering frequent updates while also making progress on Unread 3.

I want to thank all of my customers for using Unread. I always enjoy interacting with customers. Your suggestions, feature requests, and bug reports are always helpful.

Happy new year.
