    This app is pretty sweet I gotta say. Take a few minutes and adjust the settings to your liking. I found the photo has a "swoosh" effect when there are multiple in a set. If only our BlackBerry did that as well for our pics. The only thing that bugs me, I keep getting an error saying there is no data plan when I pull up a story, yet the story pulls up, so I guess my data is okay

    Seems like a great app so far. I am having difficulty saving my zip code in the "local news" section. It won't save. Any advice?

    I,too, get an error saying there is no data plan, yet the stories and/or photos load.Don't have a solution for it.

    I do like the interface of this app but I too am getting the error message saying there is no data plan and it loads up. I am thinking a bug perhaps.

    Thanks. This is a very polished app. I think it will become a favorite of mine. A must have for anyone who reads news on their BB. The configurable tabs (scroll all the way to right) are great. Adding zip code for local news is cool too. Not to mention it's AP, a trusted source in my mind.

    It has a very elegant layout, nicer than Opera. It's fast.

    I would prefer that the send, facebook, and save article links were at the bottom rather than the top. My habit is to click on the article and then press the spacebar to scroll as I read. It takes 3 presses of the spacebar to get to the beginning of each article. Besides, until you read the piece, it's not likely you are going to choose any of those options.

    I have experienced none of the aforementioned issues on my T-mo Curve running 4.2.2.18

    Worst thing? The hat icon. Reminds me of Matt Drudge, but that is not AP's fault. Thanks again.

    Once you go into the edit tab, put in your zip code and then move up to the one that's there (New York) and deselect it. Then hit save and browse to another tab. Go back and your local information should be there. That's how it worked on mine, anyway...

    I really like the interface. I am also getting that no data plan popup.

    I deleted my comments about having a bold option for fonts. Using another font solved that problem.

    I have now gotten the pop up about no data plan, but of course it still works.

    This app is so cool. Everyone must try it! I have never had such a great experience reading the news or viewing news photos on a phone.

    Use the great shortcuts! 2 up, 8 (or space) down, 4 left, 6 right, and my favorite, 0, for next UNREAD article!

    The photos are amazing. Click on a set, and once they load just hit 6 for the next one, or 4 for previous. You can roll the trackball sideways also. If an article loads with a photo, a click on it loads the set.

    For each and every photo click the trackball and a beautiful caption overlays it. Click again and it disappears. The election coverage is superb, and being able to go from one great photo to the next, reading each caption with a click of the trackball, why it's almost like being there!

    I need more content!

    j llama, what do you mean by the "swoosh effect?"
