Syllable 2.1 is here

Syllable 2.1 is now available for download in the App Store!

This update brings some of the most highly requested features since the release of Syllable, including the option to have actions in Syllable affect the corresponding article from the service. For example, archiving an article in Syllable can archive the article in Pocket, Instapaper or Readability, so henceforth your Pocket/Instapaper/Readability queues will dwindle in size as you chew through them with Syllable.

Also included is a fantastic custom URL scheme (using x-callback-url) for Syllable, allowing actions to be launched from separate apps such as the excellent Launch Center Pro. I've added syllable:// as a URL scheme and two actions, addText and addURL. More information on using the new scheme can be found here including installation links.

Another fantastic addition is an all new article extracting engine. The previous engine just wasn't working as well as I'd like, not always bringing back perfect article texts from links and not always being the most reliable, but the new engine works faster, provides much better article extracting accuracy and is incredibly reliable.

Lastly there are some UI tweaks and bug fixes throughout the app, including multi-line title support!

Go get it!
