    Does it change personal information on your account (like your email address) without your permission like the browser version does?

    not much of different if you ask me.

    Does this updated version actually work properly? The change-log says “more reliable push notifications” however the last 2 revs have had broken push notifications, so I’m using a really old version that does work at the moment.
