It's a fast way of seeing if there is anything of interest without wasting valuable time. If you want to comment on any article, Google doesn't have the facilities here yet, but you can on my Channel (above) on Telegram. If you want to contact me without leaving your details, you can message me there at @AmpersUK - and you can hide your telephone number - unlike in WhatsApp'

The links below will tell you how much superior to WhatsApp this app is. It is available on:
