I did a review of Squrl back in April and found it a hugely impressive app. It’s now a firm favorite of mine on the iPad and I often spend large chunks of an evening watching content from Squrl rather than TV. It’s great to see the developers continuing to improve this already excellent app.
Here’s an App Store link for Squrl; it’s a free app and a universal app designed for both iPad and iPhone.
