A few items I'd like to see added to the (already great) iOS app are:

- Unread count badge for the app icon
- Clear cache button/settings option
- Ability to open items in Chrome

- Offline mode, marking things read/unread don't require immediate server sync, stories can sync up when connection is available again.
- Going from all stories back should not have to reload all the stories.
*this is mostly useful for iPad users when out of Wi-Fi range*

- Ability to hide the side pane in portrait mode, useful on relatively limited tablet real estate (especially the mini)
(some/all could be premium only)

Another one I just thought of.
- When loading "All Stories" actually load all available stories at once and not require scrolling down, this goes with offline mode again. Could be configurable in settings how many stories at a time.

I'd like to second the request to be able to hide the side pane in portrait orientation on the iPad. I really like the app but the persistent sidebar pretty much limits it to landscape orientation.

allow font size used in article lists to be adjusted. it's tiny for me. you can change font size in articles, why not in the article list?

Make sending an article to Pocket easier. It's: Tap Gear, tap Send To, tap Pocket, tap Add to read later (and hope to God you don't accidentally hit Log Out), wait, tap Okay.

It should be: Tap Gear, tap Send To, tap Pocket.
