I like this app on android However on windows phone it is constantly shutting down. Particularly when I find an article I want to read. Then I end up using a lot of data to get back to where I was and again it shuts the app down. Hit the back button after reading an article and it returns all the way back to the beginning and again burn a lotta data to get back to where I was. Very frustrating app to say the least.

Love this app but it hasn't gotten any love in a long time. Tile needs improvement. App falling behind a bit.

When you finish an article and go back to the list, it refresh's and doesn't take you back to where you left off. Frustrating beyond belief. Good source of news if you fix that one show stopping issue.

Best news app but Im removing 2 stars because it needs to fix the following and then I will gladly give it 5 stars. The app needs to be updated so that the news feed doesn't auto refresh/recycle everytime a user finishes an article, hits the back button, and goes back to the news feed. Let the user lick back up where they left off, don't refresh the whole news feed. If you want to add more articles, just add them at the bottom of the feed below the screen, since the user will scroll down to load more articles anyways.

Two big problems. 1) when click back it takes back to the top of the story list vs the story I just clicked and forcing me to scroll down again. 2) the app crashes way more often than is tolerable.

Great idea. App fails hard when you back out of an article to return to your feed and your back at the top again. Very annoying.

Very great news app probably the best only problem is that it closes out sometimes when choosing the news

Lame, awful UI and barely usable. Pass

Very poor app. Nothing compared to the ios and android versions.

The WP8 News Republic app needs a major overhaul to match the Windows 8 app. Uninstalling until that improvement is made.
