I upgraded it to 1.08.
It appears to me that the news stories are top world stories from Reuters??? and that is your only option.

We are working on adding more sources and variety (news blogs, entertainment etc..).

If you noticed, we are offering a mobilzed version of full story (for better user experience) and not linking users to a story page that is not designed for mobile with lots of tables and graphics. We are working on mobilizing other sources and also provide users the option to visit the source as well.

There is a lot more to come
