Pros and cons of NEWS HEADLINES USA 2.0 app for iPhone and iPad

NEWS HEADLINES USA 2.0 app good for

This app pulls from WSJ, Forbes, and other major news sources into an RSS type format. You can quickly browse all the headlines for a story that you want to read, click the headline for the story and be taken to the story within the actual webpage. People complain that the article simply loads on the original webpage, but like RSS feeders, that is a limitation of the Internet, not of the application. I had the free app for months and decided to support the devs because they actually update this and answer emails. Good job!
I dont know why the bad reviews from some users; I honestly think this is an amazing application. I recommend this application, it is perfect! Specially for the iPhone 3G
This is an awesome news app, but needs to be updated for ios4 multitasking.

Some bad moments

App just links to webpage in browser. Does not use rss feed to present news articles. You might as just use web clips. Not a true aggregate of news articles like an rss app. As a result, slow and clunky. Feeds limited to only five customizable sources. Why limit sources to five?? Dont buy this app; a waste of $2. App Probibly written in an afternoon.
... Overpriced for what it does... Shame on Apple for not "policing" some of the crap that is being posted on their App site...
I wanted a news app. that I could rely on all the time for quick updates, and this Id just not it. It takes forever to load the whole story. I think the only thing good about this app. is that you can see all the top storys from a lot of locations. If your thinking about buying this app. dont, wait for a better one. Or use the free apps. For your news updates.
App goes directly to a godaddy site saying there acct has expired.
