Must be a slow news day - Nothing new in Airpush ads.

But at least I read the link.....

I have no affiliation whatsoever with O2 or any subsidiary companies. Comments posted are entirely of my own opinion. This is not Customer Service so we are unable to help with account specific issues.

It is interesting...but I can't see me downloading any of these as specified  I can't get my head round much Spanish without starting on anything Russian wink

  • A Russian language IQ test, which Google Play indicates had been downloaded up to five million times
  • A Russian history educational tool, which Google Play indicates had been downloaded up to 50,000 times...... ....
