Recap and future roadmap

Our status after 5 days live

We are pretty satisfied with our customer base growth after 5 days live. It seams that people love our service and a lot of registered users are coming back. There hasn’t been any large issues so far, like other competitors have experienced (Feedly lost user feeds subscriptions), so we are pleased.

What do we expect from our users?

We expect a lot of feedback. Please send us your wishes, desires and also problems (if you have any) using SilverReader feedback. We’ll be happy as long as our users are happy.

What have we done so far?

Our back-end services are fine tuned, so we can proudly say that we have one of the fastest back-ends out there. We have also published our desktop-browser optimized website, which is by far the  fastest RSS reader available online right now (it’s about 2 – 3x faster than Google Reader was and much faster that any other competitor).

One of our users said on Twitter : “SilverReader is as fast as a native application” and we are proud of that.

In the last few days, some minor bugs are fixed. We are also working on RTL language support. Some basic RTL language support is already published, but in next few days, our users can expect more improvement on that functionality.

What are our future plans?

For us, the most important thing is to listen to our users and adapt our plans according to their wishes. Currently, we plan to:

  1. Make sure that web version is stable and work consistently on all browsers
  2. Improve responsive design our web version across tablet / mobile devices
  3. Add some additional features to web version (great new features are coming which will not affect the simplicity of User interface)
  4. Deliver Android / iPhone / iPad apps
  5. Deliver Windows Phone / Windows 8 / RT apps

Do you think that we need to change our roadmap or that we missed something? Just drop us a comment or give us some feedback on SilverReader UserVoice.

Thank you for the phenomenal first 5 days. Stay tuned for more news.

Happy reading! Your SilverReader team.
