Best press reader I've foundImpressive selection of free magazines and newspapers. Works perfectly on Asus Eeepad and samsung galaxy nexus.and seems pretty good at syncing issues in the background so it's still usable without an internet connection

Confused by the qualityGoogle is known for quality. How can this app only allow downloads of content to be stored on the main phone memory? It ran out the first time I used the app! Oh, and no gear icon to provide feedback per Google's support site. Uninstalled, but I was actually looking forward to using this.

Uses too much memoryI really like the GUI; it is well-designed, responsive, and user-friendly. However, the app's garbage collection could use a big improvement! Granted, I have a lot of sources in the library, but the app reaching 26+ MB worth of just data is not acceptable. Moving the app to the SD card doesn't seem to help any and I'm forced to manually clean the data almost after every use of the app. Uninstalling now until this is fixed, which I hope it will be since the app has great potential. Thank you.
