Customer Reviews

soundcloud addition is amazing! (5 stars)
so cool that the music can keep playing when flip around other feeds. What a great way to discover new music and podcasts

Allow landscape viewing of videos on iPhone (2 stars)
There is one major annoyance with this app. Lots of news sites are embedding videos into their articles. You tap the video to play, and it opens up in the app's embedded player...BUT YOU CAN'T ROTATE IT. The video plays in portrait orientation only, which is a huge waste of space on an iPhone screen. Double tapping the screen zooms in but crops off 2/3rds off each side.

Seriously, it would not be that difficult to rotate videos

Another broken update (1 star)
Version 1.9 to 1.9.1, nothing is fixed. I would rather wait a week and have it fixed right than get excited to download a "fix" that doesn't make it any better.

Issues:
- All feeds erased when upgrading to v 1.9. 1.9.1 upgrade did nothing to address this.
- Added a few new feeds I don't even want just to test if it even worked. Now when I delete them they reappear after 3-5 seconds (same behavior in 1.9 and 1.9.
