Expert expats!

Do you know how to open a bank account in 5 different countries? Do you know what travel documents are needed to fly to the United States if you are a Croat?

Stack Exchange for Android is here!
This mobile thing will never last, right? We figured if we waited long enough, this whole “mobile application” thing would blow over and everything would go back to the way they used to be. You know, when phones were for calling people, and computers were for typing long, angry rants about how ...
