One thing I've noticed is the display doesn't change when holding the phone in a horizonal position. Most other apps, including browser will do that. This feature would make it better for reading text or watching video.

I haven't lost my mind. It's around here...somewhere...

I sure hope they did a better job than the RDI version, I've never had any iOS app crash my iPod touch so bad that I had to give it the "three finger salute", multiple times...
