Not impressive, not worth it Crashes a lot. Hangs, and even hangs the whole phone at times. Pauses :10 into each playback. No search?! Often thinks it should resume whenever a Bluetooth device connects, which is a pain. It doesn't really ever exit and stays running in the background after you quit. Samsung S3. Update: finally just had it. Seven minutes between launching the app and getting it to play. Seriously?

Where is the OPML import? Made a backup using the feed export and now can't import.
