    Wow! I love it! I hope this design gets carried across to the international version!

    If you want to read the news offline (e.g. while commuting or if you don’t want to use up your mobile data allowance) then DO NOT INSTALL the latest update. That’s why I found this site, looking to roll back to a previous version. Thanks APK Mirror.
