Impressed - Very nice app.
Buyer Beware!!! Waste of money! - Well, I just wasted another dollar on an APP that doesn't work. I would have first contacted the developer before writing this review, to give him/her the benefit of the doubt and to respond to my comments, but they DO NOT LIST ANY CONTACT INFO. 1) When modifying the settings, they do not save (ie, I changed the text to "slow" and "big" but they did not change. 2) It is impossible to stretch the ticker any wider than a few inches, so you can't pull it across your screen.

Points for effort - Love the concept, nice and clean. It just needs to be a real ticker: - Stream the news one after the other (i.e. the begining of the next headline is showing as the current is leaving the screen) - Go all the way accross the screen (resizable) - Custom background (opacity)
Great concept, some changes needed. - I like this program, there are some modifications I would make, however, and I write them in order of priority. 1. Slow down the scroll, even on the "slow" mode it's awful fast. If the ticker were wider, it'd be okay. But the ticker is narrow to begin with. 2. Allow users to customize the font, window color, etc. 3. Perhaps allow the ticker to be expanded more, both horizontally and vertically. 4. Keep finding news sources. Decent app, worth the $0.99.. hope to see some good updates in the future.
More space. - It would definitely be nicer if you could slow down the ticker further, and/or be able to widen it all the way across the screen. I do like the simplicity and the price. Advanced users probably should look at more expensive apps.
Impressed - Very nice app.
Not really a good app at all - I was looking for something like this and I didn't like it at all. It was slow and even after changing the settings you couldnt get one continuious scroll I went with another Ticker called Snackr not in the app store but it is 10 times better!
