I know that the pay-version has faster updates than 1 hr but what I am looking for is when I open it in the morning, then later in the afternoon, and maybe again at night.
A few people have asked for this but it is deliberately not there. One thing we have always been mindful of is putting excessive load on other people's (i.e. the feed publishers) bandwidth. Hence the minimum update interval of one hour and also the lack of an "update all channels" button. If it was there, many people would be using it all the time, needlessly hammering servers.
There are very few feeds out there that update more than a few times a day so updating a channel once an hour is more than enough. And if you are only using Awasu a few times day (instead of leaving it running all the time), that is even more the case. When you start Awasu, any channels that haven't been updated within the last hour will be updated immediately so you will get the latest content.
The way I do things is to use the "New content" channel filter that only shows channels with new content in the My Channels window. Then, I just work my way through them until I have checked them all.
