Great app with a big problem

I love this app. I've used it daily for years. Just upgraded to a Lumia 950 and the live tile gets stuck almost immediately. This is very annoying. I've uninstalled and reinstalled multiple times. It fixes the problem for a few minutes, then... Please fix, Microsoft. It's kind of ridiculous that one of your own apps has this problem on your flagship phone.

Not a political person

Maybe there is a way to filter out the political junk, because I'm not a fan of politics (especially right wing garbage) and have it set to only scientific, sports or other news items I'm interested in. As is, it functions well enough and is easy to navigate. I just wish I could set it up to display only the things I want to read.

Nice job 👍🏽

1. If the news tile is wide or large, the text is very big and ugly. Make the text size same as medium tile may be you can show more news in wide/large tile. 2. Put the back button on the title bar.

Dark Theme Good, Crashing Bad

Love the dark theme! ALL APPS AND OPERATING SYSTEMS NEED THIS FEATURE! The bad part is that the app crashes every time I use it, it just seems to get hung up on something, freezes, then closes itself. Not a big deal for this type of app but it could be more stable.

Battery drain problems

This is one of my main battery drains. No way to turn it off in background (not listed in background tasks). Had to unpin to save the battery. Otherwise its a good news reader many customizations.

MSN for 8.1 was my favorite APP 10 APP inferior

MSN News for Windows 8.1 was my favorite app as it had a large selection of news and excellent story summaries. MSN News for windows 10 is a disappointing inferior product with less selection and a focus on pictures over news content. Please bring back the 8.1 version of this APP.

Opens then immediately closes

Can't access this from the tiles on start page of Windows 10. When I click on the tile it opens and then closes within 2 seconds. Frustrating. Update, I uninstalled and reinstalled it and it now works.

Quick and convenient

This is an easy way to get the day's news delivered to your desktop. However, the list of stories doesn't navigate properly, so some stories get skipped. But it's a good place to start before you go surfing around the internet for the top news stories.

Lost a lot of what made the Windows 8 app magic

But it's coming back over time. Needs stronger up front source selection and customization filters.

a step down from the old

It is a good compiler of news stories but it has almost no control over what stories and services you get. The stories are run over and over until whoever decides to take them down so each day you have to weed out those you have read and there is no link to share on facebook when you find a story you think is worth the time.
