This is a WIDGET! Only! Great. To those who can't find icon, you need to look in your widgets. There is no icon for the app...Just a widget.

Used to work great but no longer updates stories But sure what happened, but I don't get any updates after Nov 11th 2013. Please fix and then it goes back to the 5 stars it deserves when it works.

Crap app Installed on Moto Droid Max HD, but no icon anywhere to be found. Hopefully it will not leave any traces of junk when I uninstall it...

refresh Used to be awesome, was 5 star worthy. Recently (last 3 weeks) it has taken a nose dive. Only refreshes articles on a reboot of the device, or removing & replacing the widget. On htc rezound & galaxy tab 3 both, same issue. Needs manual refresh now for this reason otherwise it will be getting uninstalled. Will let stay parked for a month to see if issue mentioned can be fixed. Thank you.
