It’s time for yet another major release for our Android and iOS apps. This time we are proud to bring you one of the most requested features to date – Offline Folders.
We have considered full offline mode for a long time, but synchronizing your whole account could lead to a lot of problems if you have too many subscriptions; like high CPU, battery and storage usage. It is also possible to miss certain articles, because your phone doesn’t have enough storage to keep them all. That’s why we have decided to implement offline mode at the folder level. This way you control which folders will be synchronized and which ones won’t.
To set up offline, just swipe a folder to the right or long-press on it (on Android) and choose “Make offline” in the appeared menu. Then, you will see the following screen:
When you save the settings, your folder icon will turn green indicating that it is now offline. It will continuously synchronize in the background. With Offline Folders articles will be immediately available to you whether you are in the subway, on the plane or hiking in the mountains with no mobile coverage.
This is our first iteration of our Offline Folders feature and we are committed to improving it as much as possible, so please share your feedback with us.
