New Android version requires two new permissions:

- Device ID & call information: read phone status & identity
- Other: draw over other apps.

Sadly, there's no mention of what these are required for in the patch notes; any chance we could get an explanation about what they're now required for?

Whatever else is wrong with the USA and their control over the DNS system, their provisions to guarantee free speech are important.

Items that are left as unread for 30 days are automatically  and silently marked as read. I discovered this the hard way when several items that I'd been saving across a variety of feeds mysteriously vanished.

I guess people are expected to 'save' articles but coming from Google Reader my default behaviour is to leave some things as unread until such time as I can action them.

It is a confusing and unexpected default behaviour. Optimally it would be great if items that are marked as unread are left unread permanently, or if they must be marked as read (for back-end data management reasons or whatever), some notification to the user should be given so they can be 'saved' or otherwise dealt with.

Thanks for an otherwise awesome service!
