I've long been interested in buying this since it's had such good reviews and plays so many other formats that webOS doesn't natively support. Searching in the App Catalog I noticed the version for phones is on sale priced at $1.99 and the tablet version is $3.99. This is really a good deal for such a capable player and much less expensive than it was originally. I've purchased both now and it plays everything I've thrown at it so far, even a 1080p video on my overclocked Touchpad - I didn't expect that.

Anyway, I just thought I'd share the news of the sale in case others are interested.
