  1. Hi Naufil,

    Thanks for the post and feedback. We are in about to release a new version (1.4) that will have some new features that we are excited about, mostly because they address many of the users’ requests we have been getting since launch.

    The new version will expand our support for more countries, add Saved Searches to a custom category, ReadItLater support and more.
