Great content in an awesome presentation for free!

Perfectly designed app. Navigation is intuitive and easy, content is great.

Perfect. Dynamic. Interactive. Love it.

Early feedback: The app is a joy to use, non-linear, with the ability to annotate, external references, the contents is extremely well formatted etc etc. Just one thing: Please add a Font Size option. It is very hard to on the device I plan to use it most: A 7-inch tablet with very high dpi. Look at the Bing Wikipedia app, implements the font size wonderfully. Thanks for such useful and gorgeous app. Let the content keep flowing!

Excellent

Excellent educational reference. Very informative. I love how it describes aspects of Windows 8 applications in detail (what an appx package consists of, what the WinRT APIs enable, etc). Please keep them coming, Microsoft.

What, no universal app?

I have a Lumia 1520 WP and this app should be available on it also.

Crashes on WinRT

Loads for 1min and then it crashes. Good MS quality as normal

Very Nice

Just scrolling through this and trying some of features, very impressed. It would be nice if you add any MS Press e-book into here, it just seems to function better than any of the readers I have so far.
