Unread 2.8.2 is available from the App Store with these improvements:

  • This update fixes a bug that could cause a background crash or a crash at startup under some circumstances.
  • This update fixes a bug that prevented the feed title from appearing in the article view under some circumstances.
  • This update fixes bugs around saving the webpage text vs. feed text setting for an individual article when it varies from the setting for its feed.
  • The General font size setting now has text indicating that it is a legacy option. I intend to remove this setting when I can require iOS 15 or iPadOS 15. iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 let one specify system type sizes for individual apps, making the General font size setting redundant. The Article Lists and Article View type size settings will remain.

Unread 2.8.1 is available from the App Store. This update incorporates these improvements:

  • This update fixes bugs around refreshing an account on a new device after migrating or restoring data from an old device.
