Reeder 1.1.1 quashes Lion bugs, swipe issues remain

3 August 2011 1,727 views One Comment

Some apparently are having trouble with this app running under OS X Lion. Though I could be doing it wrong — more than two fingers — Reeder is performing well for me, with the various swipes and gestures just working. Nevertheless, folks are complaining about problems and creator Silvio Rizzi is busy creating fixes.

Friends, Mac head, Reeder users, fire up the Mac App Store because there’s stuff to download. Reeder 1.1.1 ($9.99) is now available and it addresses some of the outstanding issues this outstanding RSS client has with OS X Lion, etc.

iTunes, App Store, iBookstore, and Mac App Store• Titlebar display in fullscreen mode (Lion)

• Slow scrolling with scroll wheel (Lion)

• Freezing when opening shortcut preferences

• Readability viewer issues

• Other bug fixes (Lion)

Thereupon, Mr. Rizzi advises that “There are currently some issues with swipe gestures when using Reeder on OS X Lion.”

Specifically, to get swipe left/right working, “Swipe between pages” has to be enabled for three (Trackpad) or two fingers (Magic Mouse). So, go to System Preferences > Trackpad or, for those of you still in Ludd’s thrall, go to “Mouse” > “More Gestures” and add those extra fingers.

Rizzi says that Swipe up/down seems to be broken, but I’m doing just fine. Then again, like I said before, I’m probably doing it wrong…

Enjoying Reeder or is it giving your grief?
