    Check it out if you haven't already. It is $3.99, but it is unlike any other news reader you've ever used.

    Check it out and let me know what you think, 5/5 in my opinion!

    FYI this is just a recommendation. I'm not affiliated in any way with this app or company, I just wanted to share it with the community because that's how I stumbled across it and it's great!

    Not good

    Don't waste your money. The darn thing doesn't get refresh properly, new messages are being updated.

    Strange, seems to work no problem for me. Possibly a problem with your Internet connection when it doesn't refresh?

    Gets pretty terrible reviews. I saw this on App Advice today and even they somewhat warned against it. Bugs, crashes, etc.

    I love this app. It's fast vibrant and a pleasure to use as it plays to the strengths of the iPad.
    If I'm showing off my machine this is the app I start with.
    So far I've never had a crash....

    Funny, I use it probably more than any other app and have had 0 issues with it, and never seen a bad review. Maybe you should try it before you trash it.

    Well I have Early Edition. I was just going by the reviews in the app store. I don't see why I would buy yet another reader. You have never seen a bad review? Go to the app store. Hit most recent review. Here are some basics from the first few reviews:

    - Takes forever to load
    - Thumbnails for all stories gone (I know this would be the case, it's that way in Early Edition too)
    - Promising but too few feeds (you can only have 20 total RSS feeds, I have more so I won't use it)
    - Very unstable
    - "Crash city"
    - Nice app, crashes a lot
    - Wait to buy, not ready from prime time

    Seriously, go read the reviews. No reason for me to spend 4 bucks on a limited buggy RSS feed service.

    Heh I'm blessed with one of the few working copies then.:D

    Glad I never read the reviews.......

    Bloody excellent app. I commend it most heartily!

    I'm actually starting to look for a no frills RSS reader that simply delivers the news.

    But plenty of reason to trash it publicly without using it. Again, I use it all day, never a single issue.

    If it looks like a troll, walks like a troll and quacks like a troll...
