    Good morning,
    I am Nicolas Raoul from the AnkiDroid team.
    Could you please replace this version with 1.1.3 ?
    1.1.2 is known for crashing often.
    The APK of 1.1.3 is available here: http://code.google.com/p/ankidroid/downloads/list
    Thanks a lot!
    Nicolas Raoul

  • Nice post. I learn some thing a lot more challenging on distinct blogs everyday. It will constantly be stimulating to read content from other writers and practice a little something from their store. I’d prefer to make use of some using the content on my weblog no matter whether you do not mind. Natually I’ll give you a link on your web blog. Thanks for sharing.
