Hi David.
Between feeddler pro 2 and lire, who is the winner. I trust you have had the privilege of using both apps.
Cheers.

Sorry Freeman, but it's at least a couple of years since I regularly used either of these apps, so I cannot meaningfully comment on how they currently compare.

Can anybody else help out here with some up-to-date opinions on these apps?
