Rolling Out Updates

Today we are rolling out many updates to Shyftr. Some are behind the scenes and some you will notice in your every day use. We're constantly improving the efficiency of the site and the overall experience for our users and wanted to let you know of some improvements.

Behind the Scenes - we cleaned up how the feed list was built. The benefit of this will be noticeable in the time it takes for your feed list to load. The performance of your feed list has been greatly improved.

Folders - You can now view how your friends, guides, and other users organize their feeds.

Your Interface - You can now mark all feeds as read (a current tool available), or you may choose to mark all feeds as read past a certain date. For example, if you go out of town for a week and don't want to sift through 7 full days of back-logged feed entries, but would rather just see the last 2 days of entries you've missed, you can mark the feeds as read "Older than 2 days".

Invite Friends - We have a simple "Invite Your Friends" interface at the top right hand corner of the Shyftr site. In addition, once new friends register, there's a simple list of feeds for them to choose from right from the registration page. This is a "quick start" approach which we think will help new users get started successfully.
