Excellent app, have had absolutely no problems with it. The picture galleries are gorgeous! Would like to be able to post /share those pics via social networks just like one can with articles, but other than that, it's very well executed!

I love the app, but whenever I share something or switch out of the app then come back, it always loses track of which article I was reading and goes straight to the start page of the app. Very annoying and severely limits sharing potential. Fix it!

Great app, clean and beautiful, just what Microsoft probably envisioned for windows phone .

A good service. App needs some more basic additions and performance fixes. 1. Add a night mode. That is quintessential. 2. Crashes most of the time when opened through notifications. 3. UI can have some refinements.

I had this app on my previous phone (Android), and loved it. On the windows phone, the app seems to be a little more rough around the edges. There are fewer settings, which I found to be disappointing. Regardless of this, I still greatly appreciate the content and the app overall is still solid. Just a few alterations from being a 4/5 star app.

I LOVE so much about News Republic, but...

I LOVE so much about News Republic, but... it does currently have a problem where it quits and closes on its own randomly while I'm trying to read an article. I contacted them and they responded rather quickly, and explained the problem is with an external SDK which the developer is working to correct. I can't fault them for that, and I am impressed by their responsiveness. It's such a great app, I plan to continue using it regularly once the issue is corrected. Unless I'm crazy, though, the HP edition of News Republic seems stable. so I'm running with that version for now.

News Republic stops erratically

When reading this publication, the app will just stop and disappear - when it wants to. It could be the 4th article or the 40th, it doesn't matter when or where, it just disappears.
