    This update is very buggy on Nokia Lumia 620, pressing on wallpaper force closes back to Windows home screen, pressing apps, does sometimes and when you press back button, again force closes. Just unstable, shame the previous version worked like a charm 😡

    It doesn't! It is filed as only requiring
    media playback
    data services
    movement and directional sensor
    HD720P (720x1280)
    WVGA (480x800)
    WXGA (768x1280)

    Have you never used this app before? When there is a new article to read you will get a push notification and a tile count. Maybe you have to turn that on but it is there.

    The background tasks are for the sound streaming API and for updating live tiles, as confirmed by the developer.

    it caused my phone to reboot when it installed. my phone probably needed a reboot anyways, so I guess you could call it a feature.

    Closing this thread, since there is a discussion of the app here.

    Please continue your discussion there.

    The developer checks that thread frequently, and he should be able to help.
