Works well for pre-lollipop Great way to keep up with Slashdot. Doesn't work quite right on lollipop. No reply from Dev email.

Handy, reliable and good looking A solid and speedy interface to Slashdot news. It even has the familiar dark green colour scheme. I've been using it daily for ages. Thanks!
