Wow! Absolutely loving this app. A new way to explore current events. It's slick and polished and works flawlessly on my galaxy tab 2.

App locked to landscape and mimics iPad aspect ratio It's great to see an ABC app like this on Android but locking it to landscape is a poor decision. Many people enjoy using their tablets in portrait as though it were a book or magazine. Please introduce portrait functionality. Further to this, the app seems to be a port of the iPad app meaning my 16:9 screen is not being fully utilised.

Has failed to find an internet connection New version, still "No Internet Connection" every time I launch it, despite all other apps having no problem. Very disappointing. Nexus 10. Rooting should make no difference out all the other apps would fail, if it does it is poorly written (I write apps). Using root cloak makes no difference so rooting shouldn't be the problem.

In order to get more people to download your apps you need to give your development 100%. When you don't, it shows.
