Great for ZA and world news

Great layout, simple to use and informative with lots of content. I like the live tile on the start screen, but it only updates after opening the app. I would expect it to update even if the app is closed, like the News360 app for example. Please fix this and it will be awesome.

A bit disappointed as it feels very much like someone just did a quick 6 hours job to get something on the marketplace. The lack of Galleries and the many other sections like wheels found in the Windows Phone 7 app is disappointing.

scrollbar is a pain in the neck

this applications sucks as you cant scroll using mouse wheel. you have to use scroll bars at all times. can we have an update that allows scrolling and not by using scroll bars?

Great app

Great app. Good to see South African news sites are taking advantage of Windows 8. Now where is that Windows Phone app?

This app would be useful to quickly catch up on all things SA, but at the still lack some polish. Scrolling on main screen needs to be smoother and more users settings.
