Flaky

Crashes (spontaneously closes) a lot, usually right after opening a new download. Very often have to download the same issue multiple times before it STAYS downloaded. Wish I could view pages two-up like an open magazine.

Needs work

Great content as expected from engadget. However the app needs a lot of formatting work. Zoom for one to get rid of the sidebars.

Great content, good app

I am a fan of Engadget, so I like the content. The app, however, needs some work. stability has improved. now the app needs an improved landscape view.

Slow on first run, great after that

So far, so good. Good quality app. First load takes a while as covers are being downloaded. Should show a progress bar. Read experience is fluid.

Good Win8 alternative for Distro readers

The app works -- it shows me all of the Distro covers and which ones I've downloaded, it downloads issues quickly, and it has a good navigation feature. The only thing keeping it from 5 stars is zoom -- I wish that I could zoom in on articles and pictures when I'm reading from my (landscape) laptop.

Nice :)

Great app. I am enjoying this app immensely. The layout and navigation features are very smooth. Reading in portrait view is pretty nice. Keep up the good articles.

Great app!

At last, it has been ported to Windows 8/RT. It has the same reading-style flow as it does on the Android app. Thanks Engadget for bringing this app to the Surface!

Fantastic!

Distro is one of the few magazines I subscribed to on my iPad. The win 8 version has a few flaws but is still very slick and great to use. Really enjoyed reading the latest issue on my surface.

No zoom

Pinch and zoom does not work, and it is very difficult to read without it.

Nice app though...

Really great to have these on W8, yet at times, dunno why... there's trouble with the animations of the scroll when scrolling with a mouse. It's like the numbers are flipping or something like that.
