Reproducible bug in iPhone app

  • Subscribe to a pair of “planet” feeds that occasionally overlap, like Planet Debian and Planet Ubuntu. ( and )
  • If you’re flipping through all unread, and come across an item that exists in both feeds, upon viewing the second item: “next unread” stops functioning, and clicking the “all stories” button to go back to the list crashes the app.

i have had this happen with Hacker News as well.

So this bug is well over a year old, but believe it or not I am currently working on a fix for a bigger bug that will sort of unintentionally fix this one. It’ll be a week before I get it out, but my hope is early next week.

The neat thing about my solution is that you won’t even have to update the iOS app for it to work.
