Explanation of permissions:
Location: for the compass that shows you where a capital city is and how far away it is.
Internet: get Flickr pictures and show advertisements
Network state: For advertisements.
Phone state and identity: advertisements networks require this permission, we don't use it ourselves.
There is always the payed version for people who don't feel comfortable with the Phone state permission.

Provides pretty much accurate informations. Animations are little slow on Samsung Galaxy Spica. More general information needed!

Overall good. Information can be out of date though. It still has Kevin Rudd as the prime minister of Australia.
