App Update With Better Support for Older Devices

For those of you who have installed the app on your Android devices (and Thank You!), there is a new update out this morning.  The update, version 6.0.1 for those keeping score at home, is mostly aimed at improving performance on older devices.  If you have a device running on KitKat then you should see some stability and speed improvements with this new build.  Given that 33% of all of the installs of the app are on KitKat, that should be a big improvement for a good percentage of you.

If you are running on Android Lollipop or Marshmallow, you will see a slight improvement in speed but not as dramatic as those on KitKat.  Overall there are some general stability improvements App App

in the app as well that should improve performance and cut down the size of the app’s cache.

A big thanks to everyone who has installed the app on their devices to get news from the site.  Your feedback on the app is greatly appreciated so be sure to leave a comment in the Play Store on the app – good or bad.  The only way it can improve is if I know there is an issue or a feature you’d like to see.

The app, for those who haven’t downloaded it, is completely free (it is ad-supported) and supports push notifications as well as Android Wear.  You can download the app and get more details about it at the Play Store.
