Back to a buck. Wish they had done a better job of spreading the word... I would've like to try this, as I'd buy this for the iPad in a minute if I thought it was good.

I'm an app-oholic! And there's no 12-step program...

I only found it browsing iTunes Sunday but wasn't able to post it up for
everyone with a very big window of time left...

I managed to get it Free, but when my roomate got home and tried,
it was already back to $.99. They were serious about the weekend only.
