feedHopper 5.2.1 (and a bonus for your troubles!)
« on: November 22, 2011, 07:29:55 PM »
Hello folks.

The crash has been identified and fixed with 5.2.1, including protection from this in the future.  5.2.1 has been submitted to Apple.   

Assuming you have had the upgrade problem with 5.2, the first time you launch 5.2.1 your feed list will be intact and the database will attempt to recover.  This will take a minute or two because of the odd configuration.

You may experience sluggishness with feedHopper if you have experienced the upgrade problem and the recovery did not go well.  If so, purge your database (under the support 'life saver' toolbar button you will see a purge database option).  You will lose articles but performance will return to normal.

I realize this was frustrating and apologize.  A reading database should NOT go down on you. 

To attempt to make amends (other than the fix :) ) our iPhone equivalent (Flitter) is currently undergoing a major design update to bring in all of feedHopper's features and will be given away free for your troubles. 

If all else goes well It is a few weeks away if we can beat Apple's review team xmas shutdown period (which would delay release until '12). 

Just resister for email notification on this thread (see the 'notify' button above this article) and on the week where Flitter will be made available for free a followup post will be made with the app store link.

Ok Flitter is up and in the store.  It should be free this week so let everyone you know download it!

http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/flitter/id320129198?ls=1&mt=8

Flitter is compatible with feedHopper.  In fH, go to system settings/export/email OPML file.  Here, email yourself the OPML file created by feedHopper.  Next, on your iPhone or iPod that has Flitter on it, open the email and hold your finger down on the attachment until you are prompted with "open in flitter".

Select "Open in Flitter" and you can then pick the feed(s) you want from your feedHopper list.
