This week brings us a minor, but major, update for the NewsBlur iOS app. Several new features, some due to new APIs in iOS 7, have made it into the app.

Here’s what’s new:

  • Background updates so NewsBlur can download stories while you sleep
  • Custom text sizes for feeds and stories
  • Dynamic text sizes based on your system preferences
  • The story title is now linked to the original story
  • New preference to use either the in-app browser, Safari, or Chrome
  • Major iPad fixes include better transitions, bugs squashed, and improved performance

Coming up I have a big ticket feature that is just about ready to launch. Stay tuned for saved story tagging, which will also make its way into the Android and iOS app soon.
