Is there a keep item unread option in web version?
Is there an option to keep an item unread like in google reader? I couldn't find it anywhere and I think that it would be very handy. I know there is a "save for later" option, which is useful, but not for the same purpose.
Mark unread not working for older articles: after reopening the app, all articles are read again
I accidentally turned all the articles in a feed "read" and I can't undo the action. There should be a simple way of toggling read/unread (web version, Firefox)

On iPad keep unread marks as unread but then marks articles as read as soon as you refresh

I just added new RSS content, and wanted to mark all items as unread. It would be great if this were an option. I tried going to each post and marking as unread, and it seemed to work, until I refreshed the page. I tried both through the web interface and the iPad interface. Would love to see this fixed!

'Keep Unread' link at the top of each individual article marks as unread, but when I move to a new view, the articles lose their unread status. The 'Keep Unread' DOES NOT WORK - please fix.

I've noticed this doesn't work as PiaL says, but only for articles that were imported from Google Reader. For new articles that arrived after the initial import this seems to work fine.
The "keep unread" does not work. When I go back to older articles, mark them as unread, switch to another category and then return to the previous category, the articles are no longer unread.

The option is already there, right above the title of the article, "keep unread".
It's just not on the same level of the other actions, so it's hard to spot.
There should be an option to mark as unread also at the bottom of the article, to avoid scrolling all the way to the begining of the article.
Other option, as others have already said, is to press the "m" key.
I would like:
- "Keep unread" button both on top and bottom of the article
- Not marking as read if I scroll down one article that I have just marked as unread
- Being able to mark as unread old articles
- Having a "Keep unread" button visible in the mobile app (Now you have to go to settings and know that the circle mean "keep unread")

Definitely want a "Mark as unread" option like Google Reader had, and like Gmail and all other email apps always have! Just makes sense.
I know the "Save for later" feature exists, but it's not the same. I want an unread count to remain in each feed / category I have for items I want to revisit later, not everything just jumbled into an "save for later" list.
please add 'mark as UNread"
This is lame. There should be a clear cut way to keep an item unread. All it needs is one button or link. The mobile versions have it so clearly the functionality to do it exists in the app. I just spent 15 minutes trying to figure out how to keep one article unread and ended up having to do it on the mobile app.
It is actually possible on the phone. Just open settings (at least in Android) when you are in the article and press the little circle button (yeah, it is among other sharing options, but it does work for marking as unread.. bizarre design choice).

I just discovered the m key, which is useful, but only for articles that were just marked as read -- in other words, it's exactly the same as the "keep unread" link in a newly read article. As far as I can tell, there's no way to go back to an article from a day ago and mark it as unread. This isn't just a hypothetical concern for me -- often I start reading something on my phone but don't finish and would like to be able to go back and add it to unread articles.
Chrome: "M" works for me. However (in title only view), there's no visual feedback unless the item is closed again (either by closing via enter key or by jumping to next or previous article).
Android App: In the "..." (Vertical) Menu, there's a circle. This is not "Share on Orkut" (sigh), but "keep unread" actually.
My recommendation for improvement:
- Show title in title line (the white space above the size-increased title, that closes the article again on click), either bold (unread) or normal (read), just as in good old Google Reader.
- Additionally spend a checkbox for additional visual feedback (and the ability to *click* an article read/unread)
- For the App: Add a gesture or -which I liked better- add a button to keep articles unread. A button that is accessible directly without opening the "..." menu first.

The "keep unread" marks it unread, but as soon as I scroll even if the mouse is way off to the side it marks it read again. I know I have that feature on, but I would hope the "keep unread" would do something.
the shortcut for mark as unread is 'm'
it's the same as google reader

The "keep unread" option seems to only be available to articles read in the current "session". Switch to another feed and come back and the option disappears. Please have this option available all the time.
This is also vital for mobile devices. There is a way to do this in list view but it's hard to find it explained. Basically just a short swipe to the right; a long swipe will mark everything in the category unread.

It seems that any time you read a post, it has to be marked as unread before the list is refreshed (checking for new posts). I think that the ability to "keep unread" should be available in all posts.
