Why do they need to know my location?

Not working on Desire HD, facts not showing

Still no app2sd. At 5MB this is way too large for many phones. Also, @emptyglass: technically, London is the capital of both England AND the UK.

Uninstalled, App2SD needed.

Uninstalled because of missing App2SD support (2.2) If you add support I might reconsider

Needs high resolution support Useful app, little out of date, would be better if used multiple sources not only CIA data
