Hello everyone! The Signpost App for Android RC1 was well received,
and several people reported bugs that have since been fixed.
From the last RC, the following issues have been fixed:
1. Changing screen orientation is now handled much better
2. Show category of Article (Technology report, Op-Ed, etc) in both
the Articles list view and in the Article view
3. Saner back and up button behavior to do what people expect it to do
4. Styling fixes everywhere!
5. Added a way to force check for the latest issue in the menu
6. Fixed bug causing wrong URL to be shared.
The major things I'd love to be tested are compatibility in various
phones and also how it fares in Tablets. Testing on the Kindle Fire,
Android 2.2 and 2.3 devices and other tablets would be much
