Version 2.2.30

New features to lose your sh*t over:
* Our brand-new side menu has a bold, amazing flavor, but it’s much smoother on the way down. Beer jokes. Heh.
* No more hunting like you're on a long safari-like trips with your thumb. You only have to swipe right on any post list for quicker access to our amazing new side menu.
* Want to go down the rabbit hole? Of course you do. We’ve got new category pages so you can easily see our more “interesting” sub-categories when your boss isn’t looking.
* Here’s a huge one: We can now support for web embeds! (Exclamation points!) You can now enjoy quizzes, interactive posts, tweets, instagrams, etc. in their natural naked glory.
* Our “Top Rated” category has moved to the bottom toolbar and the Explore function moved into the side menu. You know, just to keep things interesting.
* Performance improvements...because that’s what everyone else in the app store says so we’re saying it too.

Bug fixes we squashed… um, like a bug
* Fixed issue where deep links from emails would sometimes fail. (Our email department has been terribly annoying about this so we’re glad not to talk to them again).
* Fixed issue where a crash would sometimes occur when signing in/signing out. Because who wants that?
* Outdated posts on the Explore page? Psssshhhh. No more. We fixed the issue where Most Shared and Most Commented wouldn’t update in the Explore Page.
* Fixed bug where we sometimes have too many drinks with Alen. Even though Alen tends to buy us those drinks. And arm-wrestle us. And win. Probably while cheating.
* More protections from bad ads.
