Tip: How to backup your Stream feeds

After you’ve created your perfect set of feeds you may want to do a backup so you don’t lose it. But how?

It’s easier than you might think. Here’s how.

  1. Select the Setting icon in the upper left corner of the title bar
  2. Select Export Subscriptions
  3. Choose the location to save your subscription OPML file
  4. Tap the Save button

That’s it. You now have a backup copy of your subscriptions.

If you have iCloud storage, Dropbox, or one of many other cloud storage providers with a Files extension you can backup to any of them. That way you have a copy in the mystical cloud so you don’t lose it if something catastrophic happens to your device.

Happy Stream’ing.

Stream 1.1

This release includes two upgrades to existing features and one bug fix.

🔥 The first, and biggest, upgrade is the reading experience in the Article view. Various text and paragraph formatting styles are now supported.

🔥 The second upgrade is displaying linked items inside the application instead of opening Safari. Small, but it does make for a better experience.

🐛 The one bug fix was something I wanted to fix for quite a while. Certain feeds – like Medium – did not include their content in a way Stream knew how to parse them. That bug has finally been sent packing.
