Unfortunately, no, this is a WP7 application only. I was considering porting it over to 6.5, but have some other WP7 applications to create first.

Thanks.

When showing off the app in person over a lunch, I had a comment about wanting to see excerpts with the titles in the items listing screens. While this isn't something I would personally want on my portable screen, would anyone else use this functionality?

Looks nice and would love to see a WM6.5 or Android version. No plans to move to WP7 for me.

Maybe you could offer it as an option?

That was my thought as well, but if its only one person who wants it, I'm not sure its worth the development time.
