An Android browser, searcher and reader for the popular website "TV Tropes".
• Browse and read TVTropes articles!
• Read tons of stuff at once with TABS! (For Android 4.0+ only!)
• Be safe with spoilers hidden by default - read them by clicking!
• Night Mode - protect your eyes and your screen in the dark by turning the interface dark.
• Search the website for articles of your interest.
• Bored? Use the 'Random' button for a random article!

Due to Android Fragmentation being what it is, the new tabbed version is available for Android 4.0+ only!
If time and technology will allow I will try to make the app backwards compatible in the future, but statistics suggest that the vast majority of the users already user Android 4.0+ as it is.
That being said - support for previous versions will still be maintained. The latest version is now 1.0.2 (had to advance the version number to adjust for concurrently publishing two versions).

    Have tried a few other similar apps and this is definitely the best. Easy to use and frequently updated. Thanks a lot!

    Would be better if editing and login was a thing.

    Sometimes the program goes haywire and starts going into a loop where it tries to load the main and sub sections of the article you're trying to view and there's nothing else to do than to quit the program and go read the article with lampshade. This ne

    Definetly better than Lampshade, love the features, but it constantly crashes! Can you please fix it? My device is Nexus 4.

    Every time I try to search something it just gives me a blank screen. As a workaround I search on the browser and then open the page in the app. This needs to be fixed soon, or at least tell me what I'm doing wrong so I can fix it.
