Not quite sure what to make of this app. It's really just a Twitter aggregator for the Engadget staff. I guess for people who like getting news via Twitter, this is a plus. For me, much prefer the standard app or mobile site. Much more content without having to click through a Twitter feed to get to a regular Engadget article anyway.
As far as real time posts are concerned, that's what live blogs are for. Everyday tech news doesn't really need real time posts. It's even questionable for CES, as most big announcements are more than adequately covered by the regular site.
Three stars for the effort, but as it stands, I feel like it should be called Engadget Lite.
Great little app. Now if they would just update Autoblog and other properties/titles they haven't touched in over 2 years. Such selective attention to their own brands. Sad.
Awesome new way to enjoy Engadget
Beautifully designed and executed. Makes me feel like I am listening in on the Engadget team's infield chatter.
