Big divide in the original readers

  • is it an inbox where you have to read every item
  • or more like a stream that lets you dip in and out
  • a hybrid

What do we want an Indie reader to do?

  • inbox/stream
  • actions: share/reply/repost/upvote/fave/bookmark/rsvp
  • works on a phone
  • hide/block/mark as spam
  • mark as read
  • grouping (shane posted this photo on x, y, z rather than as separate items)
  • volume control per feed - filters
