How Stuff Works Does Not...Work That Is

Brings up title screen each time I open and then it promptly crashes! Kind of useless.

audio multitasking does not work ... each time that I leave the app... the podcast stop...:(

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.

Still waiting for you

I uninstalled due to the fact that the animals category NEVER worked if you could fix that I would TOTALLY REINSTALL IT still waiting for you to fix the animal one

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.

Nowhere to provide feedback?

Sorry, but the very first article I read (about important contributions by African American engineers) contained an incorrect reference of trailblazing involving lighting a fire to create a trail. Nothing to do with it, check your facts. A "blaze" is how the English referred to a bright colored diamond shape on a dark horses forehead. When explorers marked a trail, they used an axe to create a similar shaped wound in the bark of trees. Thus, trailblazers. You need to allow feedback.
