Great app, but doesn't automatically clear old cache. I just noticed it was using 600MB of space. o_O

Beyond useless I love the concept of this app but my scheduled offline downloads rarely work and when they do it is for a brief glimpse of the page. It works for one view- then when I try and view it later in the day, nothing works. The Google newsstand app downloads the same headline content and never fails me so I just end up using that.

Terrible since the new version Jumps back and forth between UK and AUS editions, sometimes whole sections are missing from the menu, sometimes the "read more" button disappears, sometimes it won't load pictures, and sometimes it won't load at all. There hasn't been a day when the app has just worked. Sick of sending off the emails and just being told to clear the cache.
