    Hey downloaded the app a little while ago. Works great, runs smoothly and efficiently. I might suggest having the titles shortened so it’s visible on the phone in both portrait and landscape mode? (I think this Briti…en tampered with.. <landscape view, I think the…red with.. <portrait view) Maybe there's a way to label it one thing on the website and have some underlying code that has it read a smaller description for the iPhone app. That is all.

    Seems when I choose a gallery then choose a picture, then after viewing it, try to go back to the “latest” tab it just gets stuck on updating…

    but when i close the app then reopen it, it loads in a second or 2.

    Running iphone 3g JB 3.0 OS if that helps any.

    Ability to choose how the images are displayed would be nice, it’s quite annoying to have to zoom out to see the whole picture (and the image won’t even stay that way unlike when zooming in) if the dimensions are not the same as the screen in iPhone.

    Also it was pain in the ass to wait for the images to load when browsing a specific gallery, the app doesn’t seem to have any kind of preloading mechanism?

    I wish I was cool enough for an IPhone.

    I love the app, except (like timishue), it takes forever to load when you hit “latest” after viewing a gallery. Other than that, it’s great.

    Got it when it came out, works good and easy to use. The only aspect that I think could use some work is when you view images fullscreen, and change images, it will only hold the next and last image in memory, so even if you view them in order and get to the last one, if you go back, you have to wait for them all to load again. If it could retain them in the phone memory, that’d be pretty good. Also if it could load all the images for a gallery at once. That way, while you view one, others could be loaded.

    You can get it for blackberry…please, yes

  • Dutchy

    Please make app available world wide or at least dutch app store (Netherlands!)

    Huge fan and iPhone owner, so…

    App is awesome, great “reading” material when you got a few minutes! The only thing I would ask for is the ability to save pictures, there are several I see and want to send to friends…

    Thanks for the app.
