    First, thanks a ton Florian for writing all these nice words and advises!

    I'm having so internal struggles on what kind of limitations to set, whether they should be opt-in, default, or mandatory. Getting that kind of user feedback is helping me so much.

    I like the hard limit too. Eventually I'd like to set some maximum reading time budget. Eg. you set your queue can not excess 5 hours of cumulative reading time, or another number based on how long you're using the app every week. Then the user would need some kind of new screen to review every page of the queue (with a screenshot preview and some basic metadata?), and choose which ones to remove to regain some budget back to add new articles.

    1. 100% agree, it was making me cringe when I added it at the last minute. Will redesign into something that looks like a proper progress indicator.
    2. I suspect you bumped into that stupid bug that went through 1.1, and should be hopefully fixed with 1.1.2. If you delete the app and reinstall it, you should see the third and last screen of the onboarding. Just make sure your queue is empty first because it won't be saved after the app is deleted. Please let me know if you have the opportunity to replay it.
