Any use or ever have used mobile play. It's a free program. Just wanting to know if it's junk or not.

I've tried using it, and I've had all sorts of problems getting it to work. It's still very much a beta product, on the few times I was able to get it to work it took 10-15 minutes to push content to the device. It seems to be very sensitive to signal strength. If you're not in an area where you have at least four bars, it will not always sync up. It's basically nothing more than a reader program that allows you to download some blogs and news websites wirelessly. If I were you I'd just use the BB browser or install Opera Mini and add the URL's manually. There are websites of major content carriers that are optimized for mobile browsers that will download much faster and under less than perfect signal conditions than Mobileplay. I don't recommend it until they get some of their connectivity bugs dealt with.
