iOS "Mark stories read on scroll", read status not saving?

I recently enabled the setting “Mark read when scrolling past”, but it doesn’t seem to work as intended (or maybe I’m doing something wrong). I’m observing the following behavior:

  1. Scroll through list of stories, confirming that they are marked as read as I scroll past
  2. Return to feed list ("< All" in title bar)
  3. Pull to refresh feeds

At this point, all the “read” stories are again marked as “Unread”. Newsblur correctly respects “Read” status for any stories I manually mark as read, as well as “Mark entire folder…” and “Mark read older…” operations, but not the “read on scroll” setting.

Yep, we identified this bug yesterday and have issued a fix. It will be part of the massive v6.0 update coming very very soon.

Thank you, Samuel! Unrelated: I’ve started training tags, after our conversation at XOXO. It’s definitely improved the experience. :slight_smile:

Glad to hear it! Training is NewsBlur’s #1 distinguishing feature. And it goes both ways, hiding stories and highlighting stories. Each way is a completely different feature and are used differently.
