AcceleReader for Pocket – Support for Pocket Beta

Added support for the new Pocket beta URLs

Some of AcceleReader’s functionality had stopped working for users of Pocket’s Beta app. Pocket switched the beta URLs from https://getpocket.com/beta/ to https://app.getpocket.com/ leading to the extension not discovering the pages, and not working on them.

Thanks to Federico Cimorelli for reporting this change.

This update restores most of the functions for Pocket Beta users:

  1. ‘Read something’ works again
  2. Coloured time tags and total article count are visible on the Pocket website
  3. Article filtering is back, though it doesn’t work well at the moment
    • Pocket Beta only shows 12 articles at a time, so only they are filtered, reducing the number of visible articles

New permissions & updating the extension

As Pocket beta works on a new URL, the extension requires additional permission to access that URL. So Chrome will disable the extension when you upgrade, till AcceleReader is allowed to access the new Beta URL as well.

Also, you may need to open your Pocket list once – ‘https://app.getpocket.com‘ – before the extension registers that you are using the beta version, and starts serving you pages on the beta URL.

There are also some other minor updates to the filtering tags in the side bar, and the filtering popup.

Please share any feedback or issues using the feedback form available here.

That’s all, folks!
