Fantastic upgrade with one major caveat
The app is worlds better than the previous, non-universal version except for one thing. New version doesn't seem to have a live tile. No live tile, for a news app in particular, is a major negative.More
This app is pretty interesting feels like NBC's twitter feed but on steroid. I wish they had detailed news section as well.More
Just downloaded the app, but I like the concept and flow.More
Fastest way to keep up to date on news!

Good, but needs more...
...more settings and controls over what news is presented.More
Live tip text is too large
Needs other improvements as well, like the logo and use of accent colors thoughMore
See the latest news at a glance.
Very simple, works well and is easy to use. It is in snap view right now and I can see the news change as it happens while I am writing this. Well done.More
A distinct disappointment
The name of this app is misleading. This is really only a Twitter extension, not an actual news site. The inability to access actual news stories related to each headline without leaving the app and tracking it down online killed my interest in it.More
Great Breaking News Source.... Would be 5 stars IF
.... I could change the colors of the "tiles" that the stories appear in. I have no problem with the white, but orange makes people hungry. I want them to be RED like everything else that I like.More
