I have tried resetting winkfeed, however this has not helped (turned off the winkfeed glassware, hard restart of glass (15 seconds), re-enabled the winkfeed glassware).

Hi, I've just received Glass and installed WinkFeed as its exactly the sort of thing I've been wanting to do with Glass. It would be great if we could chose an alternative Read it Later service like Instapaper. 

Are there any plans to develop this app further or to open source it so others can build on this work?

Thats great thank you. I'd be happy to test this feature if you're in need of a 'beta' tester? :)

Good News Everyone!

After a brief outage period, Save to Pocket is now functional again! We found the bug that appeared when XE16 was released and have fixed the problem. If you had Pocket enabled it should work now, even for old cards. If you do have any problems please try disabling and enabling Pocket in settings. As always, if you continue to have issues, please let us know right here and we will look into it.

We discovered through our beta program that a very small number of users still cannot save to Pocket. If this is happening to you, please let us know.

Thank you for bearing with us while we corrected the problem.

I can't get sharing articles with Pocket to work. I already disconnected Pocket several times, revoked access to both Pocket and my Google-account. I even did a hard reset of my Glass. Still, articles that I send to Pocket don't end up in my Pocket list.

Any tips? Ideas? Without it, I have to read everything on Glass, which is really inconvenient and renders Winkfeed useless in my opinion.

We are in the process of creating a Winkfeed Beta user group.

The Beta group will have an opportunity to test and discuss new features before they are rolled out. 

We'd like 30-50 testers, and wanted to offer those in this community first access before announcing the beta group publicly. We'd like you to be active in providing feedback, but patient if something breaks. We're also asking for your discretion. Anything that happens within the beta community, such as features discussed and tested, should remain confidential.

We have a bundle of updates we'd like to start testing as soon as next week.

Please reply to this post if you are interested.  We will add you to the new community and provide you access to our Beta user agreement.

I have recently had an issue with Winkfeed not saving my articles to Pocket. It says they are saved on Glass and the option to "Save to Pocket" is no longer given. However, none of them are showing up.

I looked for a way to refresh my link with Pocket or remove it and re-add it, but no option seems available. I can remove Winkfeed permission from Pocket, but when I can't recreate the link via Winkfeed's site.

Any suggestions?

We've noticed a very small group of users still cannot Save to Pocket. We're working with Google this week to determine why.

Pocket Integration Issues
So in attempts to get the Pocket integration working (because it hasn't worked since I got a new replacement Glass last week), I removed Winkfeed from Pocket's Connected Apps [1]. Unfortunately, Winkfeed is still showing 'Pocket Integration Enabled' and I don't know how disable to so I can re-enable it - there's no button on the Offline Reading page like I would expect.

+Michel Rivas Hi Michel. Unfortunately a small group of users were hit with a problem where Google's servers return their Pocket requests to us empty. We can't do anything about this problem at this point since it's happening on Google's side. This problem started popping up when users updated to Kit Kat on their Glass.

We'll keep everyone updated on this problem. Sorry!

Hello

I am unable to save winkfeeds to my pocket account, I have tried everything from reinstalling the app to closing and opening my pocket account. Is there a problem with my account? Can you fix it? Thanks

Hi, I've been unable to get any article to post to Pocket since XE16.x and beyond. I've disabled and re-enabled the Glassware, but it just doesn't seem to save to Pocket.

Got any ideas, or is this a known glitch with Google's software updates?

Hi +Matt Abdou - it still doesn't seem to be posting...even after disabling and re-authorizing my account for the Glassware. Thanks for looking into it. :)

Hey, it would be great if you could have the full text of an article available to be read aloud from Winkfeed. I don't really care about the headline, I more care about the actual content.

I'd prefer: Read Aloud, Read More, Read Later, Visit Website. 

I'm not sure I'd want the whole article read out, would it be possible just to read a summary in a similar way to the Guardian app?

I submitted a request some time ago for a couple of new feeds; Wired.co.uk and wired.com. Would you consider adding these as options?

Thanks for joining everyone!

If you have Glass and would like to try WINKFEED.  Head on over to http://winkfeed.com and register.

Now that you can read on glass it's not as big a deal but to save articles for reading later WINKFEED works with pocket. 

Follow the instructions on the website or in the settings page to set that up.
Winkfeed helps you keep track of the topics you love and important news happening around you, all accessible through Google Glass™. Made for Google Glass™. News at a glance. Winkfeed is your new link to what's happening around the world. Simply connect the feeds you love and we'll send you ...
