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

Great! But... It is out of date. Not grossly out of date, just a little behind. This is expected, though, considering that the CIA updates the factbook on a regular basis.

This is an App you should have. Hopefully, its information will be updated soon because facts remain fact.
