If one or more of the feeds you follow embed useful article bodies in the feed XML you may wish to view them rather than load the body from the supplied URL with QuickView or the full BlackBerry 10 browser. The embedded article viewer in multiFEED displays any text, links, and images embedded in the feed, but comes with some limitations (and some benefits):
- Reading an embedded article body is faster since the text was already loaded along with the feed XML, however, images must still be loaded when you view the article so there may be some delay before they appear.
- If you lose your Internet connection after loading the feed XML you can still read the embedded article with this viewer, however, images will not be displayed in this case. This can provide a limited "offline mode" for long subway commutes, etc.
- Unlike QuickView and the full BlackBerry 10 browser, the embedded viewer uses the default device theme (Bright or Dark) to display the article.
- Any links in the article can still be followed, but will launch QuickView to do it. To allow you to navigate back to the article in QuickView after jumping to the link URL, the article is reloaded first into QuickView, then the link is followed. This way, the QuickView back button will be enabled to take you back to the article.
- Occasionally the feed publisher will define a "hard" size for images in the article, preventing multiFEED from resizing them to fit properly on the page. This is unusual however, images are normally correctly sized for the page.
While viewing the embedded article, if you wish you can open the full version in QuickView or the full BlackBerry browser using the buttons on the action bar at the bottom of the page. The overflow menu (?) also includes a few extra actions while reading the article:
- Review multiFEED: Makes reviewing multiFEED on BlackBerry World a snap.
- Share Article: Allows you to share the article title and link with other people and applications.
- Remember Article: Launches the BlackBerry 10 Remember app to save the title and link for this article in a notebook of your choice.
- Un-read: Closes the article and sets the status back to unread.
- Fit to Width: Zooms the article so it fits the screen horizontally.
- Fit to Height: Zooms the article so it fits the screen vertically.
- Fit Both: Zooms the article so it fits the screen in both directions.
- eMail Support: Send an eMail to arsMobilis support.
Warning: While it is possible to save an article to the Remember app using the Share button, doing so will not attach any tags set here, even if the notebook type supports them. For this reason it is recommended to always use the Remember button when saving an article to a Remember note.
