feedPush and IOS4



there are problems with actual release of feedPush and the new apple’s OS :(


i have sent an update 2 weeks ago but i’m still waiting for approve, hope will be very soon

feed push 1.52



i have just sent this little update that



- add compatibility with windows-1251 cyrillic encoded feed


- add auto zoom and pinch to zoom in built-in web browser; really i prefer the big font used without zoom enabled, but i have add a function to enable zoom into tools menu of brower



A little reminder on how push work and why the push cannot be in real-time with post publish: there is no feed back from feeds provider and my server, so on my server there is a process that costantly loop and check all subscribed feed to look for new post.


All loop required about 15 minutes, so the dealy maybe/should be from 0 to 15 minutes; if from two check of same feed there was more than one post only the push for last is send to the users


Somebody has experienced that never receive push for some feed: there are a lot of feeds that are not correctly formatted and cannot be parsed… in the next days i will post on my blog a list of this feed so, if the user want receive update for that feed, can forward to blogger/web admin a note to correct the issue.


You can check yourself if you like using this web site :




fill url field with the feed you have subscribed but push are not received anda report about the error will be displayed


There are with feed like this too https://mail.google.com/mail/feed/atom ; it canwork only if you are logged into google…  so it work on your pc but cannot on my server (i got not authorized error).


If you like to subscribe password protected feed you can use this free service :




that create for you a new ‘encripted’ url that can be parsed by server

feedPush 1.4


soon will be available an update with these features:


  • sync with ReadItLater service




  • new option for any feed



- the feed description can be modified in edit function (during insert (+) its read from feed)

- push sender field:  if not empty, will be used to display the feed originator in the push message (keep it as short as possibile, the complete push message cannot exceed 255 characters)

- autorefresh: if on the feed will automatically refreshed every time you open the application



  • forward news



by eMail or sending link to ReadItLater service

feed push 1.2



i will send the new update just  iTunes connect will be back…



You can now select the row in every point to see the feed news; the blue arrow disclosure will show the feed detail view.

If you have a lot of feed, a double tap on the navigation bar will scroll the list to first row


The tool button will display now a setup function


insert here your Google Reader user and password if you want to sync feedpush with Google Reader.

Google Reader is an aggregator and is update with much delay in front of original feed, so i cannot read news from there because when i send a push the news is not yet available on Google Reader.

The news will read from original feed; for this reason the integration with Google Reader has only this feature:

  • import feed from Reader (from feed detail, add feed function)
  • export feed from feed push to Reader (from feed detail, edit feed function)
  • mark all as read: when you mark a feed or all feeds ‘as read’ in feed push, your Reader will be syncronized and marked as read. Remember that Reader maybe has not yet the last news just published, so they will be not marked as read







You can now touch a row in every point to read the news; to go back at the top of news list double tap on navigation screen


In the read news view, the gesture to select full screen and go back are changed to avoid issue when you want scroll a page horizontally; the slide to activate the special functions now must be long at least 200 pixel, so almost every the screen
