Back on the 7th of September


I am out-of-country on a business trip with limited, if any, network connectivity and time. I will resume answering comments after the 7th of September.

You may want to post your question to the forums: There's a lot of experienced NewsRob users there who can answer most questions.

Cheers, Mariano

Please upgrade to NewsRob 2.7.7

Sorry, major screw up on my part.

NewsRob 2.7.5 included a minor bug (please ignore all NewsRob app icons but the one called "NewsRob", that was just an experiment), which I removed again in NewsRob 2.7.6.

Unfortunately I was mishandling my tools and as the consequence some other work-in-progress code was released in 2.7.6. This time it's more than a minor annoyance. 2.7.7 will stop refreshing after the first refresh.

So please upgrade to NewsRob 2.7.7 and accept my sincere apologies!

NewsRob 2.7.7 is available from the Android Market and AndAppStore.
