    The "stuck with a POS Android phone" part applies to all Android phones, so I have sympathy for that viewpoint.

    I do like how a lot of apps are using the same "pull to refresh" concept but making the UI different and interesting though.  Like how with twitter you get an animation of a little bird etc. 


     


    This could be iOS's answer to this:

    To AI thanks for the nice app, but can you please just make your website more compatible with news readers like Pulse?

    Lynx, used to have fun with Americans going on about their fast Windows systems, I was using text based Lynx with the ability to do immediate replies so by the time their browsers with a 30 second page refresh loaded they'd find 10-20 separate comments from me asking where they were.

    And from what I've experienced from the many browsers on Android I'm better off with an app.  I'm currently using the dolphin browser that is ranked as one of the best mobile browsers on Android on the Google play store and on websites I have read.  It has a few neat features but what a buggy piece of doodoo.  That goes along with the stock browser, chrome, and firefox that I've also used and are always crashing and freezing and acting strange.  Not that I never had Safari crash on me back when I had an iPhone 3G but the crashes were few and far between, and not daily, multiple occurrences like on Crashdroid.  I can only imagine Safari has become more stable as iterations have come out.  The issues I'm dealing with now are on latest builds and on the mighty Jelly Bean version of Android with project frozen butter.

    "the AppleInsider app for iPhone and iPod touch, available as a free download exclusively from the App Store."


     


    Exclusively? Um, since when does Apple allow developers to release apps to public users?

    I'm actually surprised Apple would allow an App that deals in rumors about unreleased Apple products, and routinely posts pictures of illegally obtained parts ... You'd think there would be something in the agreement prohibiting this .,,, but otherwise, great!

    I think the implication is that it's only available as an iOS app, but I can see how that could be misconstrued.


     


    And hey, AI could have made an app and released it in Cydia. image
