Finally cnet finally!! Great work. I'm hoping for consistent updates and support. Two thumbs up! 2/15/2015 - I withdraw my previous comments above and now ask. Where are the updates? :( Lowering my score from 5 to 2 8/6/2015 - And here we have it. An update has finally come. What can I say? It's at least stable now. There doesn't seem to be any design changes that I can notice. No change log too. It's nice to know though that this app isn't abandoned. Hoping for a fully featured Windows 10 app in the future. Bringing up my score to 3

CNet is my favorite tech website, hands down. This app gets the basics right--you can read articles, reviews, and keep up to date on the latest tech news. However, it is not nearly on par with its iOS or Android counterparts--video quality is awful, in-text photographs are often excluded from the articles, and at times there are rendering problems. I hope these issues are resolved soon. Until then, I will continue to use some combination of the website and this app (because this app can't stand alone). Update: after the most recent update, this app gets 4 stars. It's still rough around the edges, but the functionality has drastically improved.

Couldn't open featured article.

The featured tab doesn't work. "oops we cant reach cnet. Please try again later. " everything else seems to work.

I'm admittedly a CNET power user and big fan. Unfortunately, the app doesn't let you copy a portion of text so can share a relevant quote along with the link. Also, unlike the mobile site, you can get one stream of all articles... Mobile site's latest news includes articles, videos, reviews... Hence 3 stars Glad to see they are still pushing updates in 2015.

This app looks great and is simple to use. The only real gripe I have is that when viewing product reviews with videos, the video is missing. I don't mean it's non playable, I mean you can't even see that there is supposed to be a video. That's disappointing because it tells me that they just didn't feel like putting that feature in. Overall 3 starts.

Great website, lousy Windows app

The number of articles that open incorrectly is amazing... for a tech site. I visit the website more than once daily. Would love to see the Modern app work better. 8 April 2015 update--I have grown so tired of the poor loading in this app that I am deleting it in favor of CNET's own website. Still like CNET, still think the Win 8.1 app is not nearly as good as it could be.
