Threw the baby out with the wash

I LOVED the news & money interface in Win8.1 - great summary and paged left to right, used full screen. Outdid Apple in their own game. I purposely used my tablet to view it - great experience and complete. Now the news (and Money) looks just like any other news outlet one finds in the browser - all vertical paging with blocks you jump thru. Even the arrow key scrolling is now jumpy in non touch environment - goes from topic to topic instead of smooth scroll. I do like Win 10, however deeply disappointed with the new interface and what is presented. Giant ** HUM. Please give back an option to have the one that Win 8.1 presented - on News AND Money. I loved the full screen operation of Win 8 (for programs designed to operate in it's environment) especially your News and Money apps. Now menu driven and just a look-a-like with other apps and also browser versions. Takes many more key strokes/menu selections to get the same data, and in some cases, no longer there.

Great design. Effective.

I like the UI and design of the app. It's easy and efficient.

Very nice app!

This app is really seamless and touch-friendly. It is perfect for a weekend read and the train. I would really like the ability to add and delete sources. This is a really nice app!

Graphic appeal is gone

Bing News used to have the most pleasant presentation with a full page photo and article intro. Now, its just a list of topics. And the personalization of "My Topics" appears to be totally gone now. Too bad.

Daily use

It's a great daily use app to keep up with news. I use it to track topics as well. My favorite by far.

Old School

I'm old school, I enjoy reading the news. I've been enjoying MSN forever it seems. I especially like the fact that unlike other new providers, MSN gives the reader the option of seeing and hearing a story as opposed to having the video forced upon a reader. Thanks' MSN, maybe future readers will continue to read as opposed to view.

You messed up a good app

The interface of the new app is nice and clean. I like the ability to add my interests. I hate the fact that now I must be connected to the Internet instead of downloading my daily newspaper. Why even bother using this if I still have to be connected to the Internet instead of my daily news automatically downloading and being ready for me to read. No more reading my news periodically throughout the day. This might be a good thing. It means I use my Surface Pro 2 less too.

So Bad

Constantly closes. Pick an article, wait, one article opens, back to desktop and app is closed.

Overall Good But Needs Offline and Custom Sources

As far as design goes, this news reader is a very fluid, clean looking and generally fast experience. Overall I enjoy using it, but while its curated interests are often good enough, I would really prefer a bit more control over the news I read. It is also lacking an offline reading feature for getting the news in places without an internet connection (i.e. airplanes). For me these two missing features hold it back from being my main news reader, but if you don't really care about either of those, this reader is definitely worth giving a shot.

Awesome on desktop. Terrible on tablet.

The app keeps closing on my tablet after loading an article. I've reinstalled the app but I'm having the same issues.
