    o and you gotta love the video taptu has on their market page

  • Gary S.

    OK, I’ll be honest. I’d never heard of this app before.  I just got it configured and I have to say that my daily news-checking routine will never be the same.  I now have all of my Google Reader feeds, Twitter, and Facebook updates in one app.  Nice!  This is a serious time saver.  I feel a little silly never having heard of this app before!  Very nice job!

    My three favorite topics are all in Tech & Gadgets:
    Mobile News
    Gadget Blogs

  • nick schommer

    android, mobile news. Nice to have everything all in one place rather than scattered around to a few different ones

  • My favorite topics are Music, Travel and Sports. this is a much needed app, thanks.

  • Great app.  I’ll take Gaming news, Android, and Comedy FTW

  • Whilst browsing for a news stream app to keep me current with all my tech news, I came across this lovely giveaway. Samsung Galaxy tab, how I’d love to own you.  Two birds, one app!  

    After browsing the topics I have picked three for good reason.
    Tech & Gadget : The purpose of installing the app.  To keep updated news in the tech industry.
    Gaming: We all need a little fun, it’s good to know where the best fun is.
    LOLZ:  A little laugh goes a long way.

    Thanks for keeping me updated with my news and giving me hope for a nice tab.
