Readit gets support for more languages, and new improvements with latest update


Readit today picked up a pretty major update. The latest update adds support for new langguages, and it also brings some other improvements and bug fixes. With the latest update, the developer of the app is introducing support for 6 new languages: Finnish, Hebrew, Kannada, Norwegian Bokmal, Slovenian, and Swedish. The app currently supports more than 25 different languages, which is quite impressive, to be honest.

Alongside new languuage support, the update also introduces smoother comment scrolling, faster markdown processing, and more. Here’s the full changelog for version

  • Now available in 6 more languages, bringing our language total up to 25 different languges: Finnish, Hebrew, Kannada, Norwegian Bokmal, Slovenian, Swedish
  • New comments loading indicator
  • Scrolling is now disabled in post viewer until comments have fully loaded
  • Smoother comment scrolling
  • Faster markdown processing
  • You can now select text across paragraphs in comments/self-text unless you hit a table or quote
  • Added support for unordered lists that use the plus sign (+) to indicate items
  • Code support has been added in markdown
  • We now handle escape characters properly in markdown
  • Full markdown support now – code, tables, quotes, strikeout, superscript, lists, and all headers/text modifiers
  • Browser pages will no longer be cached (workaround, some things will still get cached but not as much and existing cache needs to be deleted manually) since the clear cache api for embedded edge still does not work
  • Fixed gifs not playing from links in comments
  • You can now sort by “old” in comments again and set it as default sort
  • “Subreddits”, “Multireddits”, “Compose Message”, “Front page”, “all” and “friends” strings have been translated. Still need to translate some dropdowns in profile
