Crash on iPad 1 / iOS 5.1 [Fixed. Waiting for review]

We are getting reports that the new feedly 18 for iOS is crashing on the first generation iPad when running iOS 5.x. The team is at the office looking at the issue. We apologize to the users who are running into this issue. We are going to make sure that it is fixed in 18.1.

If there are other pressing issues you would like to see fixed in 18.1, please leave a comment and we will try to see what we can do.

Update: Sunday, Jan 19, 6:00pm PST – After 4 hours of debugging, we now understand the cause of this problem. The problem is not related to iPad. It is related to the fact that one of the libraries we use requires Dynamic Fonts and that feature is only available on iOS 6 and higher. We are going to fix it this evening and submit version 18.1 to Apple for review tonight or tomorrow.

Update: Monday, Jan 20, 6:00pm PST – We were able to fix the crash and a few other issues. 18.1 has been submitted to Apple for review. If there are no issues during the review, the app should be in the AppStore within 7 days.

  1. This isn’t exactly a pressing issue, but I think the new blockquote style is a big step backwards. Bold italic text is quite difficult to read. It doesn’t stand out as well or look nearly as nice as the old blockquote style.

    Hope you keep tuning elements like this. Thanks for another update to a great app!

  2. You guys really made images load faster I love the new version

    your uncategory list tho always has unread feeds jumbled w read feeds. I have to close it and expand it to get just unread feeds there EVERY TIME i go back into the app

  3. Just one wish: Besides the “Visit website” button, please add also “Open in Safari”; as now I have to go through 2 clicks. Or better yet, add private browsing, in which case Visit website would suffice!

  4. La App no funciona correctamente para pinear en Pinterest. Tarda más de 2 minutos en localizar una imagen y últimamente dice que no encuentra ninguna imagen a pinear.
    La App se queda colgada constantemente y hay que ir a “vistos recientemente” para recuperarla.
    Si sigue así tendré que cambiar de lector ):

  5. Please add an option to hide feeds that have no unread items (similar to how web version has). Thanks!

  6. Images don’t seem to scale correctly when viewing an article anymore. They sometimes go too far right, or don’t scale to fit the full screen when you put your phone in landscape mode.

  7. Removing clutter on a web page whilst the night theme is selected makes the text near impossible to read as the text is much too dark…

    Also, is there any way of inverting colours elsewhere, such as settings page, when in night mode as the sudden bright white screen after dark greys in the article view is quite a shock!

  8. In 18.1 it doesn’t seem to fetch all my articles at once – the maximum I get is six, then it shows as “at end” and I have to refresh to get more, which is really unhelpful when I have dozens of unread articles from overnight. Am I missing something in the settings?

  9. Feedly is still continuously crashing even after the update. Most of the time it does so when I visit a web site.

  10. Love feedly, so I upgraded.

    I’m still seeing issues with iOS 5.1.1 on an iPad 1st gen.

    I’ve installed feedly 18.1, yet feedly still crashes upon load. I’ve restarted the iPad, deleted the app and reinstalled etc. Still having the issue though.

    Would be great to continue using feedly on my older iPad.

    Thanks guys – you are as responsive to your install base as I am to mine :)

  11. Not only does it protect your screen from scratches, it protects it from chemical and water damage as
    well. If you want to insure your investment,
    the IPhone 5 Cases are the ultimate protection for your
    i – Phone 5s. This is a must have item for hobbyist as well as professional photographers.

  12. What’s Going down i am new to this, I stumbled upon this I’ve found It positively helpful
    and it has helped me out loads. I am hoping to give a contribution & aid other customers like its helped
    me. Good job.

  13. It’s the best time to make some plans for the future and it is
    time to be happy. I’ve read this post and if I could I desire to suggest you some interesting
    things or suggestions. Maybe you could write next articles referring to this article.
    I want to read more things about it!
