I didn't mind paying £1.79 for it ... it never let me down.
Now it's free and on my iPhone as well as my iPad.
Love it ... albeit ... if I could have something I'd have syncing between the iPad & iPhone versions.
Oh & I'd have the "pulsememe" functionality for the iPhone too.
Great app. Check it out, if you have the means to do so. If you don't have the means... don't worry, you are probably out there having too much fun to worry about an RSS reader ;-)
