This is an app I feel sorry for. It has all sorts of nifty features to provide a decent Reader experience on iOS. On March 11, the app was updated to support multiple Google Reader accounts.
A shame that it will only work until July 1.
File this app in the same folder as the previous Phone Rights app: "Good in theory, buggy in practice."
The theory with this app is the ability to share your screen, and even share sound over a wi-fi network.
Where it falls down is in its lack of support for non-Samsung keyboards. Users of Swype and SwiftKey will find themselves stuck on a screen asking them to input a PIN, but with no ability to click "Done".
This is from the same company that wants to become your "life companion". I prefer my companions to be much more open-minded.
I'm going to assume that this app is aimed at the 14- to 24-year-old demographic. That assumption is based on the idea that anyone that remembers the RealPlayer experience in the 90s and early 2000s would avoid this app like the frame-dropping, buffering maniac of a program that it used to be.
Perhaps this app is fine, and in fact, maybe it is excellent. But have you tried to play that .rm file that is buried in your music collection recently? Those scars are very deep, and this app cannot heal them.
