Drum roll, please….

The app has the same features as our iPhone app, but has been optimized to take advantage of the inherent qualities of the iPad. Take it for a spin – we know you’ll love it.

Updated, July 1, 2010: We’ve had several reports of loading/crashing bugs related to the app. We’ve identified the problem and fixed it. It had to do with our servers, not the app itself. However, it is a version 1.0 release on a new platform, so there is a chance that there are other issues, despite our rigorous pre-release testing. If you encounter any bugs, or have feedback of any sort, please leave us a note in the comment section below or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
