Background refresh is not working

Please make sure that:

  • Background App Refresh is turned on in the settings app > Fiery Feeds
  • Low Power Mode is turned off in the settings app > Battery
  • Background Sync is turned on in Fiery Feeds > Settings > Synchronization
  • You don’t remove Fiery Feeds from the app switcher (that will disable background sync until you launch the app again)

Even then, when and how often Fiery Feeds is allowed to fetch content in the background is controlled by iOS, based on app usage, battery status and a couple other things. You may have to use the app regularly for a couple of days before it starts updating in the background.

Preview images do not show up

Settings > Advanced > Preview Images must be set to anything other then None.
(Selecting a preconfigured list style may change this setting)

Additionally Fiery Feeds only displays images that

  • are included in the article
  • are larger then 5kb

Please make sure you are on wifi or enable downloading images on cellular.

Storage Usage

The iOS system settings app shows less storage usage than Fiery Feeds in the article cache. The article cache is located in a shared location between the Fiery Feeds app and the today widget. Shared storage isn’t counted towards the app in the system settings.

Safari Web View and Content Blockers

Safari Web View is the default when you open a link and it supports all installed content blockers. The inline web mode in the article view uses the old UIWebView to display web content for technical reasons and does not support content blockers.

URL Schemes

Fiery Feeds supports URL schemes. See this blog post for more details

Custom Colour Themes

Fiery Feeds’ themes are simple JSON files. To create your own themes see this blog post for more details..
