Feed Hawk 1.2

Feed Hawk 1.2 is now available in the App Store. This update adds a variety of improvements:

  • Feed Hawk will now find RSS feeds that are only linked to from the body of the web page.
  • When allowing the user to select from a list of RSS feeds, Feed Hawk will display the URL to each RSS feed.
  • Feed Hawk contains a new certificate for pinning against the Feed Hawk Web Service.
  • When Feed Hawk asks the Feed Hawk Web Service for a list of feeds for a specific URL, it makes that request as a POST request rather than a GET request.
  • Lots of refactoring and performance improvements.

Two caveats to the change in which Feed Hawk will find links to RSS feeds from the body of the web page:

  • Feed Hawk will only check whether a link in the body of a page is to an RSS feed if its label or URL has one of a few keywords.
  • If there are more than 200 links in the body of the web page that meet that criteria, Feed Hawk will ignore them.

If Feed Hawk finds links in the body of the web page that are not in the header, it will submit the web page URL to the Feed Hawk Web Service. The privacy policy has been updated to reflect that.

If you use Feed Hawk, please consider leaving a review in the App Store.
