Over all this is a VERY nice app! I like that it gets to the point, and that there are basically an infinite amount of stories. The only thing I would add would be a way to change the color and brightness of the background and the text.

Fantastic little gem!

I wasn’t truly expecting to be blown away by this app’s simplicity... It’s pure fun, going trough quite interesting texts, no visual pollution, and one simple purpose: light-hearted reading... Give it a try... You be as surprised as I was!
