  2. can we minimize the categories by just clicking the mouse on any part of the screen?

    instead of having to click again on the four-boxed symbols on the upper left hand corner of the article.

  3. Add dictionary?

    Is it possible to add a dictionary feature? Or a "search the Internet" box in the article page?

  4. Might be nice to add a "Read next similar article" button

    A button that leads to the next article in the same category that I just read.

  5. Thumped down articles should disappear.

    When I thump down something I don't want to see it anymore. There could be a safeguard in a way, like a trash can. Would also be nice to just click, pull, and drop (or swipe, depending on device) what you don't like to see.

  6. Thumbs up/thumps down should stay highlighted

    When I click a thump up/thump down on an article page, I would like keep that thumps up/thumps down highlighted as to what I chose in case I come across it again.

  7. Can the articles be saved in a personal folder

    Could the articles be saved in a personal folder, or sub-folders, grouped by "collections"/interests so we can build our own knowledge base over time? Like...building a foto album?

  8. I want to be able to highlight a set of words and add them to my interests

    while on an article, I want to be able to click and drag to highlight some text and then an option will pop up to add that text string as an interest, or find other articles that match that text string.

  9. Ability to edit the names of Interest categories

    I added a health-related interest term and when it showed up in the tray, I wanted to right click and edit the name. Imagine seeing "Cancer" or "Autism" in your interests alongside Arts & Entertainment. The ability to customize that would be nice.

  11. Thumbs up / down

    I would like this functionality before actually having to click the article. Or rather, if I click the article based on the headline -- most likely I already like it.

  12. Would love to be able to organize my interests or have interests be sorted by strength of interest

    Right now interests are just alphabetical. It would be great if the interest summary pages would be sorted by what I'm most interested in or allow me to custom order the interests. While I enjoy seeing news on some of my more obscure interests (e.g. Berlin), I want my core interests to be first.

  13. Design for two kinds of Interest - Persistent and Non persistant

    I think Interests there are two types of user interests

    Type 1: Persistent - Here user basically declares his interests like his favorite team or actor or politician etc .... current zed design handles this well

    Type 2: Non Persistent Interest - These are based on current trends / news
    Example: Tornado Irine - People want news about this to be surfaced only when this item is treding. I dont want to add Irine in my interest and later have to manually clean on my interests.

    Few ideas to solve this

  14. Accidental interest deletion can not be redon

    I accidentally clicked on an interest when managing a collection - and that removes the interest from the collection without any warning. Then there is no way for me to recall what was the interest that I removed to be able to add it again

    ideally there should be a confirmation check before removing an interest, or at least have that remove operation triggered by a specific icon (currently it is happening when you click anywhere in the row of the interest)

  15. Different approach to dual axis scrolling + different tiles view on Top Stories

    Hi,

    how about a different approach to dual axis scrolling? Following idea for Mobile:

    1. vertical scrolling:
    -> Zed home is infinite stream of articles (mix of all your interests, e.g. the top stories or latest).
    -> only a small tile with article category (interest), article title to allow quick scanning.

    2. Tap on the article tile will not open the article, but instead make the tile bigger unveiling an article summary, image if available and also actions like "read later", "share" etc..

    3. When an article tile is in focus (e.g. in the middle of the screen) during vertical…

  16. difficult to know which section will come next

    While on a section, say "Buisness", its difficult to know which section will come next and how to bring that section. Its not intuitive to use the arrow keys and the affordance of the arrow is not enough to give the user a cue that there is more content on the either side.

  17. I try to follow 'Cat', and 'Olympics-Men's canoe sprint K1 200m semi-final results' Comes Up

    This looks like a clear-cut bug, as there was another canoe article also, and neither of them had the word 'cat' in them.

  18. Support for transient interests

    I'd like to be able to follow an interest for just a few days, and then have it fade away gradually from my feed.

  19. Search multiple interests?

    If I search something like "Italy travel" there are no results. Perhaps we can search Italy and travel separately and give the recommended interests?

  20. Layout

    Hi,
    Here are a few observations:
    - Are you planning to add a "X" in the right edge of each article you dont find relevant? Hopefully that would then mean I would start to get less of those types of articles.

    - To me there is way too much text, its overwhelming. There should be alot more images so that you dont have to read 10 article titles on a page to find out which one you want to click on. The only tiles my eyes are drawn to are the ones with images. Also, for certain categories like "food…
