Android app review: Mother Feed Updated

Android app review: Mother Feed


Android I've never been a social website junkie. Well, that is if you discount user-submitted news sites. I only got into Facebook about six months ago, and thought it beat the baggy, sagging pants off of MySpace. I jumped on when right it became...

aHome, revisited (already)
