Help us test it

We’ve been working hard on this for the last month and a half, and although it’s fairly stable, we think it’s ready for wide scale testing. Disclaimer: It’s an alpha version.

Future feature update ideas include better social integration, highlighting of featured posts, speed optimizations, a homescreen widget, optional new post notifications, and more.

If you’ve got an idea for a new feature you’d like to see, then constructive feedback is very much welcome either in the comments on this article or preferably on the Get Satisfaction page for the app.

You can also just click the Feedback tab on the right hand side of the site to report an issue/feedback/ask a question about any of our products at any time =)
