In serious need of an update I love the idea of a daily universe app on Android, so I was utterly disappointed to discover this was it. Not only is the design terrible, but it also doesn't work at all. Within three taps I had a non responsive ui, weird stuff in the back stack, everything loading in a miniature, too-small-to-read pane at the bottom of the screen (think mobile ad sizes) while leaving the rest of the screen empty... I could go on. Get a real developer to make this app.

Meh, slow... I don't actually know what makes an app slow or fast, but this is decidedly the former... I'll stick with the paper copies...

Nexus 7 app You should release this for tablets too, even if you don't change the layout. I just want this on my device :)

Freezes on Galaxy SII Ok for browsing, locks up when I'm trying to view student ads. I hypothetically love being able to read the DU digitally, but a smoother GUI and improved compatibility across devices is an absolute must, sooner or later. Please fix!
