      • Background refresh of Unread bookmarks

        Be great to see Pushpin take advantage of ios 7's background refresh so your bookmarks are there when you open the app and you don't have to wait for them to be loaded from Pinboard's servers first.

        • Add Tags to "Sidebar"

          Similar to the way you can add (drag) tags to the sidebar in Evernote for quick access. This would be really useful for frequently accessed tags - rather than typing in search field each time.

            • Option to Automatically Add Suggested Tags

              The "swipe for suggested tags" feature is great, but I'd love to be able to set PushPin to automatically add all suggested tags by default when adding a new bookmark; or at least, after swiping for suggested tags, if no individual tags from the resulting list are selected by the user, default to adding all the suggested tags from the list (or some similar scheme: select all/select none buttons, default to selecting all and allow individual deselection by tapping, etc.) Preferably this would be somewhat intelligent, so it would ignore meaningless popular tags like IFTTT, etc. I understand the rationale…

                Really interesting idea. The one issue is that sometimes the tags provided by Pinboard can be somewhat hit-or-miss. But there’s definitely something to this suggestion that I think would make it much more convenient to tag bookmarks quickly. Going to sit on it for a bit.

              • Evernote support

                Save to Evernote when viewing articles. Would be great if it could save the full text, not just the URL.

                • UI enhancement – Existing tags

                  I try to keep my tag list to a minimum, more in the sense of redundant tags. My problem is remembering what tag or how I worded a tag I think I've used.

                  I think it would be cool if tags that already exist in your account were differentiated from new tags. I'm thinking something like in Messages, when you type someone's name in it turns green if it's SMS, or blue if it's an iMessage account.

                  As a bonus, if those could show up when you swipe for tag suggestions (which I love btw), that would be excellent!

                  • Tap to full screen instead of icon.

                    Like Instapaper. An annoyance when reading.

                      My biggest concern is that it’s not obvious to new users. Maybe a toggle to turn the puck on/off in addition to this? Another difference is that Instapaper doesn’t function as a browser, and thus you’re not allowed to tap on links. How would Pushpin know whether you’re tapping on a link or want to expand the screen?

                    • A manual "add bookmark" button

                      Sometimes the auto URL detection doesn't work and I have no way to manually add a bookmark.

                      • Show bottom navigation bar when scrolling up

                        Can the bottom nav bar be shown whenever a user scrolls up (like Safari)? I love that the navigation bar is hidden as soon as you start to scroll down and read an article. However, it's tough to make reappear at times, especially when you want to go back a level. This is complicated further when pages add their own advertisement bar at the bottom, which means you have to manually scroll all the way up to the top of the article before the bottom nav bar will appear again.

                        • Make Notes into a list item on the Browse screen

                          I am very happy to see Notes return in 3.1, but I am not clear on why they are a button at the bottom of the screen rather than an item in the list, alongside "Public," "Private," etc. I think they would make more sense up there.

                              Would be nice if there was an option to automatically mark bookmarks as read when sent to Pocket so that you don't have to do that manually.

                                • Update the list immediately after bookmark edit

                                  Once a week I go through my new bookmarks and reads my unread articles and organizes the rest if the bookmarks.

                                  After I've changes the title, description and tags I tap Update but the list does not reflect the changes. I can refresh the list to see the changes but I think the list should be updated immediately (don't wait for a response from the server) otherwise it's very hard to go through the list of bookmarks quickly.

                                  • Doesn't work

                                    I just purchased this and it doesn't update after adding or editing bookmarks via the Pinboard site. Same on both iPhone 5 and iPad (ios7). I have 2350 bookmarks. I am feeling somewhat unhappy about paying so much for something that doesn't seem to work :(

                                      Thanks for posting. When you say it doesn’t update after adding / editing bookmarks via the web site, can you explain what steps you used to make this happen?

                                      One possible cause is that if you last updated within the last 5 minutes, Pushpin will not update again unless the Pinboard API tells Pushpin that bookmarks were updated (sometimes this API call doesn’t return the right result). Can you confirm that even after 5 minutes since the last update that bookmarks still haven’t synced for you?

                                    • Real x-callback-url support

                                      Pushpin is hands down the best looking Pinboard app out there. But I felt mislead by some great reviews when realizing some of the things it lacked versus Pinswift (considering the price). Not that this isn't a great app, but it has work yet to be done. It really needs to be able to do more on x-callback than just open in Safari. Until then I will have to keep using Pinswift for adding bookmarks, which is a real shame since this looks so darn good and supports TextExpander for the description.

                                      • A native mobilizer view

                                        While I don't mind the Instapaper mobilizer, a native view that matches the style of the rest of the app would be a godsend. I'd prefer doing all my reading, tagging, archiving in Pushpin only, but as of now reading in Instapaper.app is a much better experience. I don't really like having to jump into another app, let alone another service entirely, just for that one aspect.

                                        • Dyslexic font just for the read later service

                                          Dyslexic fonts are a great way to make the app (and especially the read later service more accessible.

                                          Instapaper and Drafts both sport the OpenDyslexic font. I'd really like to see Pushpin embrace it, too. If possible with an option to just activate it for the read later service.

                                          See: http://opendyslexic.org/
