It's a great program in theory, but there are a bunch of issues that hold it down.
1 - It's a beta. That's not cool, whoever's responsible, and it's kind of annoying to get a beta and not know it until I read the forums.
2 - The Facebook only updates statuses (the photos do not update for me).
3 - Occasionally, Facebook/Twitter updates revert to unread and I have to mark them as read.
4 - The "scroll past to mark as read" function is AWFUL. It marks things read in folders I'm not reading, it spazzes, and it's useless.
5 - It doesn't sync properly with Google Reader. EventBox says I have ~300 stories to read, Google Reader itself says I have almost 1000.
6 - During the checking for updates process, the app freezes up. Any stories read within that period are marked unread.
I'd say that it would be a great program if these bugs were fixed, but with a locked beta, they won't ever get fixed. I hate to whine (given the other fantastic programs in the bundle) but seriously guys. At least put this in Loot if it's a locked beta.
