    Moved to misc.

    If the item doesn't have a normal retail price, isn't subject to a special promo offer, etc - then I think this is the relevant section for such items, e.g. it's info.

    Thanks for sharing.

    cheers for heads up. much slicker better than the ones i had installed. now they've all been uninstalled. cheers.

    any other cool new Android apps that i'm missing out on?

    ilike the independent newspaper app, i turn on wifi, download the paper as issued that morning so i have most of the paper precached forthe day,etc, i reload it when within a wifi i can connect to/friends/clients etc.

    Reuters news app is similar, you can download it in full and then browse offline

    That's a pretty good app, I like the BBC news site and this makes it much slicker

    Thanks for the heads looks a very good app.
