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.

Edit: Everytime I open the app I get a message that says: 'Oops, we can't reach CNET right now. Please try again later.' Latest loads fine, just the featured section is broken. Please fix! Original: Very good app, works as intended. The UI is fast and simple, rarely lags. Only problems I've noticed is that the live tile does not always display the newest story, despite allowing the app to run in background, and reviews sometimes don't load correctly. But overall, great app for your Windows Phone fans!

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.
