As far as apps go -- it's less than an app. It's merely a thrown-together version of a feed aggregator with very limited content and no useful Google or social integration.

A twenty-something is by no means old, but those of us who have passed over the 25 hump may have noticed a few changes-both physically by our metabolism slowing (and froyo consumption on the rise), and mentally- the things we worry about, the questions we have, etc.
