BerryReader Public Beta v1.1.42 Adds Touchscreen UI Tweeks

BerryReader FacebookI have been keeping a keep eye on BerryReader since its public beta is currently the best RSS reader for BlackBerry 6 devices. DavidB let me know that Bellshare has put out two new releases of the public beta with loads of improvements for touchscreen use along with other tweeks. Check out the change log below:

Version 1.1.42, Oct 29th, 04:00 CET

  • Added new visual UI for swiping article headers to toggle read/star on touchscreen devices (see screenshot below)
  • Fixed hover to show flags popup not working
  • Enabled image viewer for all images (even non-resized ones)
  • Fixed scrolling up in folder select popup not always going all the way to ‘All Items’
  • Clicking/touching a link in an article will open it in browser (no need for touchpad click)
  • Added support for moving full pages via SPACE key

Version 1.1.37, Oct 28th, 04:00 CET

  • Now showing multiple article images inline, not just the first one
  • Clicking an image opens a new image viewer for full size image viewing, with option to zoom and pan (supports pinch-to-zoom on touchscreens)
  • Added option to hide "all feeds"/"feeds not in folders" from feed selection popup
  • Feed selection popup now shows feeds below folders
  • Improved overall UI responsiveness
  • Hiding ‘Starred’ indicator when items are not starred, changed its position to provide more room for item title
  • Moved flag menu items into submenu (OS 6)

You can read more about the update in this forum thread and also find the download links there. You can pick up the public beta and use your current BerryReader activation code for it to work. If you don’t already have a copy of BerryReader you can pick one up in the store for $9.95.
