I just pushed out an update to the text view that fixes a number of encoding issues. Any content with Cyrillic, Hebrew, Farsi, Japanese, Chinese, or European characters that previously appeared garbled should be fixed.
For future content, you do not need to do anything, it will just work. For already downloaded articles, you can redownload the content and it will replace it with the corrected encoding.
Note: A fix for the Firefox extension requires a new update, which I’m working on getting out soon. In the meantime, you can access the fixed text view through the website at http://getpocket.com/unread/.
Thank you to everyone who have sent in text view reports, they’ve been incredibly helpful.
