Please realize that this is just the first iteration of the app and it will continue to grow and evolve as we add more features and polish the experience. Feel free to respond below or in the forums with requests for reasonable feature requests or tweaks. Unrealistic demands will be met with derision and mocking by Unikraken and other team members.

And in response to the eventual requests for an iOS app...not going to happen. Apple requires a $99 fee per year to publish apps on the Apple market and that's just not something I'm willing nor capable of doing.

I've already asked Sloose to tie in some kind of image gallery and fleet roster, so expect those as Sloose learns the Android system.

And we do sincerely apologize to iOS/Apple users about not being able to provide them with something, but rather than being angry with us take it up with Apple and demand more reasonable requirements for publishing apps on their market.

Damn it I only really view this on my IPhone so that means that my phone is out. :(

Oh well

If someone with an iOS developer license wants to make an Apple version of the app, or add even more functionality to it, we're fine with that as long as it stays free and with no ads. Otherwise it would break Microsoft's terms of service for using their IP.

Fair point, but they'd just sue the pants off of me, for something in the phones contract that I will have "Violated"

My old phone broke and I had a choice. Should I get an iRehash 2.0 or some such other device or something else. I decide I would get a phone for the long haul, I would get a Sitemaster 2. I originally wanted a Sitemaster 1 (floats) but couldn't find one.
Features include water proofing, metal internal case, torch, ability to survive long drops, really loud speaker, connection to any phone network at any time (cost a lot though). I honestly think I could beat someone to death with it. So screw all you young-ins with your game boys and segas, I gots my caveman club and won't give it up.

First minor update today - pushed to Play Store a minute ago
I fixed the RSS parser and made it safe (It runs on a seperate thread, so it won't lock the app up if you have a crappy internet connection...)

next update will add pictures to the RSS thread and *maybe* a ModDB galley too!
