Crashes when I open an article. Not as reliable as in WP8.1. Had to reinstall to make it work again...now it seems stable

Great for keeping up with the latest news and stories!

One thing I like about the app is that allows you to choose the way you want to see articles, and top stories based on interest. I am able to keep up to date with the latest technology, games, music, movies, and top stories about celebrities which I enjoy most of the time. I think this is a good thing to have as an app for Windows because of it unique features.

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.

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.

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.

It doesn't work.

The app teases you with a headline in the preview box, but crashes when you click on the preview to get expanded information. Same problem with the Money app. High potential for being a great app, but not now.

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.

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.
