What's New in Version 3.3.1
* Localization updates
* Updated user-agent string
Needs iOS 7 update among others
I love the ability to save articles, but it is still not fully optimised for iOS 7! There's also a common bug where when I'm halfway through typing something, the app just gets stuck loading suggestions and so won't let me search anything, meaning I have to return to the homepage and try again. Otherwise, though, it's a pretty fast app.
