Dishonest, laughable spin

Site takes marketing money from Microsoft and then defends every dumb thing they do. Just a cheerleader site with zero media cred. I've seen the unprofessional ego maniac editor brag repeatedly that he deletes site comments from people who don't agree with him. Really just a front to sell cheap phone screen protectors to people who haven't discovered Amazon/eBay.

Get more colors and new icon.

Like the app but what is up with the pink color. Would prefer choices.

sucks on a tablet running full windows

it cannot keep track of where you have been when backing out of an article to the article list or for that matter the main page. always returned to the beginning. articles have a bunch of gibberish code at the end that makes you scroll and scroll to get to the next article.either way just bunch of needless swiping. swiping to next article doesn't work properly either. the article is half hidden, forcing you to swipe backwards to get to the beginning of it.

App bugs galore

I've been using this app for quite some time and after a lengthy lack of updates, things have gotten seemingly bad. Now every article is ended with a splatter of code across each page. Not to mention the inconsistent refresh issues that plague this app, generating "Network not found" errors and the bugs that don't allow you to post comments, even though it used to a few weeks ago? Needs lots of help to be usable at this point.

Poor quality control

This app is all over the place. It shows the news from the website, yes, but sometimes the articles are filled with code (recently fixed), and now none of the videos work. Better off just visiting the website.

Glad to have a Modern app, still needs work

Big fan of Windows Central, and the WinPhone 8.1 app is great, the 8.1 Modern app is still a little rough around the edges. Search doesn't seem to be working...

Awesome, but some drawbacks.

Great content, well designed app. I hope they add access to the forums! Update: I've noticed that videos are not watchable on this app, so any articles that have videos have to be viewed in the browser, which is disappointing. The WP app allows you to watch the videos, I wish the Windows app did the same.
