Could be much better

Always a problem to load, takes several starts/restart to refresh for latest news. On the chance it does load properly you may get a decent story and pics but it is so problematic better off using a different news app

Photos - Day and Pictures don't work

I can literally watch wait for 1/2 hour before any pictures will show up, if they show up! This app was my favorite one for news and viewing pics around the world and snapshots. No more... I don't have the time to wait for this app when I can simply use Bing. I have broadband! 4-22-15 -- most photos now do not load in photos category. Uninstalling.

Nice News App

This USA Today news app provides quick unbiased stories that are constantly updated. The app design is simple and works seamlessly on my Surface RT, however, the "market" graphs are no longer displayed. The sports scores and weather map are also a nice feature.

Needs more content and better functionality. The Photos section for instance: most of those fail to load when you click on them. You'd expect better from USA Today, but maybe they're just not going to give it away for free.

android version is much better because it allows offline reading. Can't use windows version to read anywhere without an online connection

Under the photos tab the thumbnail pictures show for each category. When I choose a category the pictures do not show up... thanks, if you can fix I will 5 star. I see there are reviews from last year that have the same problem.. is anybody even trying to update this app

App Lover

Really Great App. Please keep updating techno department like for app developer or software developer. An Individual can select news by categories and only that particular section give notification, rest all run in background. Also small widget where news keep showing up in separate rectangular column above the start bar bottom right corner. Thank You

Not compatible with Surface Pro 3

Story picture comes up large with text along right side but it does not show the full text. The bottom part of the article does not show up and there is no way to scroll down.
