i love hotot.. totally. It makes me comfortable to looks any specifics account easier. Refresh and notification... no problem with it. easier to open images and search. Didn't have any problem while display any text and any language (korean, japan, thai, chinese, and etc.). Can you added more theme? :)

Hasta ahora el mejor para escritorio. Como sugerencia sería interesante que la linea que separa los que se han leído de los pendientes de leer fuera más pronunciada. A veces cuesta encontrarla ya que esta bastante difuminada. Gracias
