I’ve been working hard on the next version of Reader Widget Pro and barring any unknown bugs here’s what’s going to be in it:
- Manual login option for users with Google Reader accounts separate from their Android account. Automatic login is still there for everyone else.
- XML parser changed from XML Pull to SAX which should improve speed of headline processing.
- Bug fix: Some headlines when clicked on in the list would not spawn a browser window.
- Other minor efficiency improvements.
The manual login option took longer than expected because of having to deal with rotation and virtual keyboards. This is the first version that will actually need keyboard input!
