I’m just wondering because I think in my RSS app, fiery feeds. Articles that the intelligence marks as hidden don’t seem to be appearing in the app after I did a quick comparison.
Yep, hidden stories are hidden from third-party apps. There is an option in the NewsBlur API to override that behavior by including hidden stories (if the app wants to show hidden stories behind a button, similar to the website).
Neat. Maybe sometime I will pass that API forward as a suggestion to Lukas Burgstaller. The developer of Firey Feeds.
