love the podcast network, meh on the app

It's getting better but like others have noted the text content on channels does not work on 1.0.94. It's almost there but still needs some attention. Also, most of the video content I tried worked on w10.

Do not download this. Complete waste of time because the app is not working. Horrible app.

Doesn't Work!

I'm so excited to see the content of this app... but I can't because nothing displays! HowStuffWorks, you need to fix yourself!

The app search using window key+Q is really slow even with a 100mb connection at school, and the background makes the app a little leggy scrolling across the main screen for some reason even with a decent laptop like my surface pro... it's fun though a lot of good stuff to be found since it IS How Stuff Works data after all. :)

Love HSW...esp. SYSK.

If only I could "bookmark" and/or "continue" unfinished episodes. Too hard to scroll through to find what I was listening to the day before (esp. if driving). Otherwise, keep up the good work.

WHY How Stuff Works really works

This is the equivalent of TRIVIAL PURSUIT for your mind.I especially like the quotes,and geographical facts. Read for 5 min a day and you can annoy your friends for a week, read for 2 weeks and you will be alone.

needs improvement

a few bugs, 1) quizzes are frozen when I open up a quiz it doesn't get past the first picture when I hit start. 2)the live tile has a story and when I click on the app I can't find the story. even if I try to look it up in the search. It would be nice if any of the stories you are promoting via the live tile would instantly boot to that story or have a tab to connect to it 3) wish there was an auto play on the videos so you could just automatically go to the next one. maybe a play all feature

Not so good on the RT

The app launches, and it works for the stuff on the frontpage. But, it never loads search results, rendering that function nearly useless.
