Fiery Feeds allows you to add custom URL schemes to share articles to other apps since version 1.3. When you go to Settings > Sharing > URL Actions you’ll get a list of a predefined apps that support URL actions, but because I can’t add every app, you can also define your own by hitting the add button and define your own action.

The protocol is used the check if a url of this sort could even be opened (if the requested app is installed); the actions is not displayed in the sharing sheet if this check fails.

You can also define your own email templates, including recipients. You could for example create a email template for OmniFocus’ Mail Drop.

Gestures

Fiery Feeds is a reader for power users and while I’ve tried to add an obvious way (e.g button) for every important action, there are a lot of gestures in Fiery. Some of them more discoverable, some less so.

And since iOS 7 makes it easy to add new keyboard shortcuts I’ve also added a bunch of those in version 1.1.3. These only work when an external keyboard is connected to your iPhone or iPad.

Fiery Feeds 1.1 is the first major update for Fiery Feeds (previously Fiery RSS, but who can resist an alliteration like that). Additionally Fiery Feeds now features a new, more distinctive icon.

This is really more a Snow Leopard than a Leopard release. The big user facing new features are support for MnmlRdr, Feed Wrangler and Feedly, but for the most part it’s about the improvements under the hood and a lot of bug fixes.

Syncing with Feedbin or Fever is a lot faster. Syncing with Feedbin is down from 30 seconds to 3-4 seconds in my tests (this really depends on your wireless connection though) and I’ve rewritten the main interface on the iPad and managed to get the animations as wonderfully smooth, as one would expect them to be (finally).
