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!)
• Optimized rendering for tablets (Android 4.0+ only as well)
• 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 under the 'Legacy' version title.

    Great app. The only thing I hate is that you can't edit pages on this app. Add this functionality in and I'll give it 5 stars.

    I've use the app for while, back when it was a bit buggier. Currently I love the app and would recommend it to everyone. The main thing I noticed is that occasionally a notes section will refuse to unhide unless I mass the link a bunch or just not show at all.

    One thing this needs is a drop down menu of the tropes. You either have to know what to search for, or do through the random selection to get to something. It would be nice to discover tropes through a drop menu system. If it exists within the application I will of course amend this review or delete it

    If you can, please add the ability to save and/or download page for offline reading. That would be rad.

    I like the new style, but there are more bugs with every version, the newest one being the worst. Pages cycle endlessly, pages refresh themselves every five seconds, text loads in minutes after pictures and links, and that one bug that closes the entire app when pressing back while typing in the search bar still persists.
