Readability for Android now available globally

Changelog of the most recent update:

1. replaced share menu with Android share intents
2. utilizes hardware menu and search buttons (if supported by your device)

I have played around with the app on my Google Nexus S running Android ICS and it seems to work well.

There are a couple of issues which I hope they fix in the future releases. The biggest issue is that the app runs in the background and tries to update its database way too frequently. There are no options to disable this feature or set a time period.

Users are also complaining about the unconventional user interface. We would have loved it if the company had gone for native Android ICS UI layout. Something that we love in the official TED app for Android!
