Needs windows 10 modern style to it asap.

not going to use. I prefer using the site which has actual style to it. either copy the layout from your site, and revamp this to windows 10 ui. To much text in this app..i like pictures also..like the site has.

Not a UWP app?

The app has been teased for months and this is what comes out of that? The interface dates back to the Windows 8/8.1 days with the horizontal feed. Overall I've felt the app could have a little more effort in it.

Great App?

But we need the UWP App to appear it's been long enough bring it on. App still looks like 8/8.1 App. Waiting patiently, but "HURRY UP" lol.😁

Smaller screens exist, people

Whoever developed this app needs to take a course in adaptive design or something - I use a 13.3 inch 2-in-1 for my main computing device and the font size in this app is unforgivably small. Of course, there's also no way to adjust the settings to make it larger. None of the other features matter one whit to me if I can't read the text without having my screen five inches from my face.

Nicely Designed App

Very well designed app. Good to see you support windows 10.

Don't like it as much as my phone version

Could be better still like the WP platform better. However, this is THE SOURCE for news, reviews, & advice. You can't beat it...

Mediocre at best

No ability to up or down vote comments and other issues Have to agree with other reviews. The writing quality on the site has been reduced to blind cheerleading with poorly written puff pieces by a guy with a huge ego.

But... no Forums?

Maybe I'm missing it, but no forum access? Layout for reading news is great, app works smoothly.

Essential for any new Windows Mobile/Surface Pro user

This app is my go-to resource for tips and relevant Microsoft/Windows news and analysis.

Great UI but...

Why on earth can't I view images just by tapping on them? It is utterly ridiculous that I have to go use a link post-article to view images. Unacceptable.
