Permissions Access to my images? Seriously? Not with me.

Multi-language SEARCH support? Very smooth app and massive improvement over the old version. - However, I still miss easy switching between at least two languages for SEARCHING articles in either one. - E. g. Wikipanion on iOS allows to select multiple languages for searching.
