Too Busy and Limited

The news app on Windows 8.1 was clean and easy to use. It allowed you to choose news sources. This Windows 10 News App is very limited and does not show all the news I previously saw in Windows 8.1. Window 10 is simply way to busy.

MSN Apps on the back burners?

It seems like the 'MSN' apps (Weather, Money, News, etc) aren't a top priority for active development anymore. Regardless of how simple the feedback or how often the feedback is left in both the Store and the Feedback app, no real fix ever appears in the final product. Some long-standing issues: 1. This app doesn't the system back button like the built in settings, mail, or photos app in the title bar. And in tablet mode, we have two back button: one in the taskbar and one on the app canvas at the top. Using the system back buttons would've solved this issue. 2. The taskbar icon for this app is the Store icon instead of a simpler (unplated) icon like Twitter or Calculator. The current "plated" icon has a box around it.

Crashes on some stories

The app is great and I enjoy using it for my daily news. However it crashes when certain articles are opened. Using Win 10 mobile. Please address. Otherwise, an exciting app.

Good but need more customization

In terms of fluidity the app is great very fast and very responsive How ever it lakes the RSS feed support for personalization, the app will be mush more pleasant to use with it. A lot of journals are not supported it would be nice if we add them ourselves. Plus a dark theme would nice too.

Solid News App

I find it to run smoothly and my custom sources are nicely laid out. I'm enjoying it... :)

Can be better

Crashes. Especially when I leave my pc for some time and open the app it crashes right away and I have to open it again. Super annoying. Fix this and it will be much better.

Windows 10 version

The windows 10 version has too many advertisements, even in the mobile version. Takes away from the reading experience. The app also now feels like a wrapper over html pages. Layout is not too bad but could do with some polish.

This app reminds me of the stories I heard as a kid about the state run media in the Soviet Union. They just can't get over the company-policy political bias and put a reasonable representation of different views. Or better yet, just the news without the stupid opinion. I wish MSN had made even a slight effort to not totally suck. Journalism is dead, MSN killed it.

MSN News is broken

I use this app everyday for a very good general news report plus the custom news topics I want. It's a first stop before I delve into more specific news apps. It's easy to navigate and has the customization I need. Very nice app.
