    Now working on Lollipop, but did take too long to fix. Navigation works better too. Still needs some work.

    Unusable - authorisation service permanently down. Requests for a refund have met with no reply. They take your money then do not provide the advertised goods. Should be removed from the app store until they figure out how to deliver what people have paid for.

    Was great. Had all back issues downloaded to read. New update wipe them all and only goes back a couple of months so cannot get them back. Incredibly annoyed.

    Just when I was beginning to tire off this app, they introduce a serious upgrade that's addressed many of its problems.
