an 'ok' app, shows some promise... does take quite a few bounces to launch, does not allow for checking at intervals less than 'daily'. would like to see the ability to check a site as often as every five minutes.

This app show some promise. But it fails on web pages with dynamic banner ads, etc. (rotating banner ads fool the app into thinking of a web site change, even though you put on "ignore images", because the underlying ad-rotation-code also makes little changes to the incoming html code!)

This is a great application. It does exactly what it's supposed to do with out any problems and saves me time visiting pages.

funny, I've got the same image tattooed on my right shoulder blade, although, it's much less muddled.

The long load time for the application is most likely because it is written in Java. The system must load the java libraries first and setup a virtual machine if they are not ready. Try the following test. Load the application, then close and reopen. It won't take as long for the app to load the second time because the Java back end is now in ready. I'll take a peek and see if I can make the load time quicker but I have a feeling the only way to do this would be to port the app to Objective-C
