Malayala Manorama Android App, read Malayalam In android Devices

I was searching for a solution to read malayala manorama daily, one of India's largest circulated daily newspaper. There was newshunt and several other apps, but I could not find a solution for reading malayala manorama right in my android native browser. Recently Malayala Manorama rolled out their own android app to read the online edition in your android phone. Here is the link to Download Manorama Android app
To read other malayalam sites in android there is a fine way, open your opera mini web browser and type config: in a fresh tab you will be guided to the configuration menu.
Change entry for ‘Use bitmap fonts for complex
scripts’ to ‘Yes’. Now you can read all unicode Malayalam websites(except atomic chillu characters) from your mobile phone.
