Good Metro app for Google

Good first pass. It takes a little getting used to but is super convenient. I wish they'd update it to include better YouTube support.

Missing Features

I wish that there was a method in order to add or subtract applications from the applications screen. I wish that I could listen to my music in the Google Play Store. Other than that, it is okay to download.

Does not work

It doesn't respond at all when clicking links on a webpage. I wish I could give this app zero stars

I've seen no problems at all - I've using this as my main browser for a while (because this PC's browser stopped working) and I love it way better. I do have one suggestion, can you add tabs? There's no tabs, and I think it would really be helpful to add for the people (like me) who need to use multiple sites or so, and so. Thanks, Takara

Works Great!

It's a great substitute when the chrome browser won't open. 5 Stars!

Disappointingly flakey

Crashes constantly on my Surface 3. Also about half of the time you enter a search term and hit the search button it brings up a blank page. Hitting search again brings up the results.

Internet Explorer has faster load times than this app! Because I am running Windows RT, it is impossible to download Chrome, so it made sense to try this instead. But make no mistake, this is NOT Google Chrome. It is slow and unintuitive. If it can't beat IE, than there is no point to even having this app in the first place.

great for Google's apps. calendar, drive, mail. go with the real deal not some third party client! wish other google apps could be loaded but i am not complaining. it mainly links you to the website, but that means less typing
