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?
