Recent UI update

I received some great feedback about the UI changes in the last release. I'm still not done going through the app making UI improvements, there are still a few areas left to cover.

There were also some comments about things that could be improved and I'll try to get them worked out in the next release or two.

Feed/Item titles being truncated - The titles are truncated rather than wrapping lines as they used to.
Green font being too light - The green font under the item titles is too dark on the dark theme.

DoggCatcher turns 2

This is a few days belated but DoggCatcher just turned two years old on November 6. That is two years from when the first beta hit the Google Market.

My expectations have been exceeded in many different ways. It's been a joy working with the users and the beta testers. Most of the features that people really like came from other users/testers. Everyone has been extremely patient as we've been riding out the bumps in the early stage of the app.
