AcceleReader for Pocket – Google Analytics removed

ver. 2018.0531.5.9

Google Analytics completely removed

AcceleReader used Google Analytics to track which settings and functions were being used – to help focus developer attention on what was being used.

I have now completely removed all analytics tracking from the extension. The only network requests the extension now makes are to the Pocket servers. Other than that, the extension does not use any network requests, ensuring any user data stays on the computer.

This also means that I shall have no insight into features that are popular, or broken. So, please share your views using the feedback link in the extension (or by going here).

AR\ Instapaper – *Expire* old articles

Having a lot of unread articles in your Home folder can present a strong mental hurdle against reading any, or even opening the app.

The new ‘expire old posts feature helps by automatically moving old articles out of sight – helping reduce the stress of encountering too many unread articles when you open Instapaper.

When using Instapaper on Chrome, the articles in expired folder do not count towards unread articles count. Nor is the count of unread articles in this folder displayed.

You may use the settings on options page to manage days before articles are expired.
(Default is 90 days – approx 3 months)

Other minor update

When moving an article to another folder on Instapaper.com, selecting a folder using keyboard (up/down keys) will also scroll the selected folder into view.
